Volunteering is tremendous gift
Bonnie Lintick started volunteering with the Rockyford 4-H in 2008. On March 18, Lintick spoke with The Mail “As a past 4-H member, I know that many people contributed to my achievements through the program and I am happy to be able to give back.”
“I became the Rockyford 4-H in the 2014-15 season which involves, at the club level, planning, organizing and helping make all of our yearly activities happen.” said Lintick.
Lintick explained, “With the support of our leadership team, club parents and 21 beef members, we participate in public speaking, food drive for the Wheatland Food Bank, skiing, curling, workshops for record books, farm safety, grooming and showmanship. There is also veterinarian clinic in April.”
“I am involved with the community calendars, highway cleanup and the re- leader cord book competition. I also help plan Achievement Days at West Wheatland Show & Sale, Wheatland District Heifer Show and the awards night.”
The Rockyford 4-H Club has monthly meetings in addition to the time spent on their projects. Lintick spends several hours per week on leader-related tasks. Lintick has been involved with juding record books and public speaking, both at the club, district and regional levels.
Lintick explains, “It is a significant time commitment, but also an extremely rewarding one. I am honored and proud to be involved in the development of our young people, as I consider it a tremendous gift. We have a tremendous group of families and it takes all of us working together to make our club successful.”
