Lancaster County 4-H is proud to announce Dave Hattan of Lincoln as winner of the December “Heart of 4-H Award” in recognition of outstanding volunteer service.

Since the county fair moved to the Lancaster Event Center in 2001, Dave has helped set-up the 4-H Home Environment, Heritage and Human Develop­ment areas. He tracks down the exhibit components and puts them in place. Dave is able to move the heavier tables and displays many other volunteers cannot lift. He also pitches in helping set up other static exhibit areas.

“I like being a 4-H volunteer because I enjoy being part of something big,” Dave says. “There is tremendous satisfaction in giving ones’ time for a cause that so many in Lincoln and Lancaster County enjoy. My favorite experience as a 4-H volunteer is being around the kids in their creative endeavors, including my own children as they grew up and now my grandchildren.”

Lancaster County 4-H thanks Dave for donating his time and talents. People like him are indeed the heart of 4-H!
