"- Aesop. "Make a career of humanity...and you will make a greater person of )'ourself. a greater nation of your country, and a finer world to live in. " - Martin Luther King, Jr. Since the National 4-H Program began 1902, it has relied on volunteers along with the support of the Extension Service to help make the youth program happen. By 1920, a strong system of volunteer leadership was established and has continued to the present. Why does the program depend on volunteers? Because the multi-faceted program could not make the connections it does with young people without committed volunteers. Why do adults give of their time? Because 4-H volunteer have a strong commitment to youth and a belief that with guidance they can achieve anything! Last year in Big Stone County we bad 101 adult volunteers who took the time to work with youth in many ways through the 4-H Community Club program. We have club leaders who attend 4-H Federation and with youth leaders make major county 4-H decisions and bring back to the club important information. We have volunteers on five different standing c o m m i t t e e s : Achievement/Recognition, Financial Livestock, Projects Unlimited, Promotion/New Membership. Adult and youth members on these committees make major decisions so the 4-H program runs at its best. They are responsible for planning, funding, scheduling and facilitating learning opportunities. These individuals also help with activities during the county fair and maintain the 4-H buildings at the Fairgrounds. There are also countless other jobs that a fine person volunteers for, such as, the fruit sales manager state fair chaperone, or dance committee. 4-H volunteers do displaying exhibits, food stand work, and help with livestock shows during the county fair. They serve as project or activity leaders, coaches, drivers to'events and chaperones. A number of people volunteer their time to teach youth new skills at the Federation, a project meeting, or a club meeting. The five community 4-H Clubs also take time to volunteer in their communities by providing community service in various project work. Youth and adults decide together how they can use their time and talents to contribute to the community and then work together to enhance the community by making something look better or contributing to the lives of others. The next time you see a volunteer give their time, please extend a hearty THANK YOU; they deserve it!

And if you want to be more precise,oand have good family spending records you can easily estimate your out-of-pocket costs for raising children. A newly-revised publication from the University of Minnesota Extension Service can also help. It walks you through national figures that estimate the cost of raising children of several ages in both two- parent and one-parent families. Monthly cost tables have estimates for seven categories: housing, food, transportation, clothing, health care, child care and education and miscellaneous expenses. Families may wish to estimate child-raising expenses to help plan for future costs, prepare for family emergencies, determine support needs at the time of a divorce or to purchase adequate life insurance to provide support if a parent should die. The estimates are based on the latest Consumer Price Index (CPI) figures, says Kathryn Rettig, family social science professor at the University of Minnesota. You can find the publication at on the Internet. Copies are available at nominal cost from county offices of the U of M Extension Service. Or, call (612) 624-4900 or (800) 876-8636 and ask for publication number 5899. Please read and recycle! PRINTING Is Our Business We stand behind our work, as we have for the past 75 years.
