From Everyone at SDSU Extension: Thank You, Volunteers! Back »

Thank you to all of the volunteers and parents who helped with all the local, county and statewide 4-H events this summer! Without you the events wouldn’t have happened and I know staff and 4-H members really appreciate your time and efforts. The old saying, “Many hands make light work.” is true and shone brightly throughout our state.

You promoted South Dakota 4-H and SDSU Extension in a positive way and helped us reach new audiences and youth. As we are approaching a new 4-H year we want to take the time to think back on the past year and thank everyone involved in the implementation of the 4-H program and all SDSU Extension programming.

Thanking Your Local Volunteers

All volunteers have different reasons for why they are volunteering and how they want to be thanked or shown appreciation. I encourage all 4-H members and parents to try a few of these tips and thank your local volunteers especially during 4-H Week October 1-7.

  • Make a homemade goodie basket.
  • Send a letter of appreciation to their employer.
  • Send a personal handwritten thank you note.
  • Recognize at local banquets and programs.
  • Put a thank you ad in the paper and on social media.
