Jan­ice Hoover is hum­ble about vol­un­teer­ing, and wanted it known, that it takes sev­eral peo­ple to make things hap­pen.

Cur­rently Hoover is one the lead­ers for the Delia 4H Beef Club and has been in­volved with the club for over 15 years. Al­though she doesn’t in­volve her­self with the groom­ing and show­man­ship side, she takes care of the ad­min­is­tra­tive side and public speak­ing events. Hoover said, “I am one the happy lead­ers.”

Hoover is on the vol­un­teer cel­e­bra­tions com­mit­tee for the 4H Al­berta Cen­ten­nial, which starts Oc­to­ber 2016 to Septem­ber 2017. She as­sists with pro­mot­ing their cal­en­dars, 4H bale tarps and help­ing with the Cen­ten­nial song.

Hoover is in­volved with the Drumheller and Dis­trict 4H, act­ing as the Of­fi­cial Judge for public speak­ing. Hoover takes care of the judges, mak­ing sure they know the rules and are ready to go. Hoover is also in­volved at the Re­gional Pre­sen­ta­tions for public speak­ing.

Hoover is Chair of the As­set Devel­op­ment Coali­tion, plan­ning the Bronze Duke of Ed­in­burgh award cer­e­monies. She has vol­un­teered with the coali­tion for about 5 years. Lead­ers and par­tic­i­pants se­lect and set ob­jec­tives in vol­un­teer­ing, phys­i­cal im­prove­ment, skills and ex­pe­di­tions.

“We find things don’t hap­pen un­less peo­ple make it hap­pen. I be­lieve in 4H and the As­set Devel­op­ment Coali­tion, work­ing with youth and de­vel­op­ing lead­ers of the fu­ture.” said Hoover.

Hoover is also on the Board of Di­rec­tors at the Delia Li­brary, as­sist­ing with events, bud­gets, and vol­un­teers her time at the cir­cu­la­tion desk each month.

Hoover ex­pressed, “I just want to make a dif­fer­ence and I am just an or­di­nary per­son. We don’t work alone, we work with a great bunch of kids and adults.”
