Ada, MN — This week, celebrate the impact of volunteer service in your community as part of National Volunteer Week and shine a light on the people and causes that inspire us to serve, as well as thank those volunteers who lend their time, talent, and voice to make a difference. One of those local organizations that relies heavily on volunteers in the Norman County 4-H. Extension Educator Linda Houglum says just in their program, they have more than 70 volunteers who help out on annual basis and they play a major role in the education and development of the youth involved in 4-H.

No one is ever required to volunteer, so when asked why the Norman County 4-H has some many dedicated volunteers, Houglum states they understand the importance of supporting the program and youth who participate.

National Volunteer Week was established in 1974 and has grown exponentially each year, with thousands of volunteer projects and special events scheduled throughout the week. Today, as people strive to lead lives that reflect their values, the expression of civic life has evolved. Whether online, at the office, or the local food bank; whether with a vote, a voice, or a wallet – doing good comes in many forms, and we recognize and celebrate them all.
