OPEN HOUSE Retirement Party Congratulating Debbie Swanson After nearly 28 years as the Page County 4-H Youth Coordinator for Iowa State University, Debbie Swanson has decided it is time to slow down and enjoy more time with her family and friends. Not only did Debbie put her all into the Page County 4-H program, she also enjoyed providing many programs in the Page County elementary and middle school sectors. They were designed to prepare children with how to recognize and manage hazards in agriculture and a variety of other challenges they experience on a day-to-day basis. Those programs included On My Own and OK, Farm Safety for Just Kids, Bullying, RISK and Boomerang. Debbie also served as the Page County Fairboard Secretary for the past 23 years and will continue that role. She has been positively affected by many people throughout her career and has enjoyed seeing 4-H’ers grow, change and succeed. She believes she has played a significant part in their development. She has also enjoyed working with the leaders, superintendents, judges, parents and volunteers. We would like to invite all of her family, friends and colleagues to join us Sunday, August 18th from 3pm - 5pm at Wibholm Hall at the Clarinda Fairgrounds to celebrate this special event to recognize Debbie’s accomplishments and wish her a bright and fulfilling future!
