Lancaster County 4-H is proud to announce the Greater Lincoln Obedience Club (GLOC) as winner of the July “Heart of 4-H Award” in recognition of outstanding volunteer service. Even though they are not a 4-H club, they do so much to help 4-H’ers and their families.

4-H volunteers for over 15 years, Greater Lincoln Obedience Club is already making a big impact:
• They have helped mentor 4-H’ers and their parents in dog sports.
• They are available to answer questions the 4-H’ers may have regarding their dogs and obedience.
• They supply various equipment for the 4-H’ers to use to train their dogs for the fair. Including providing the agility equipment used at the Lancaster County Super Fair 4-H Dog Agility Show.

Teresa Barney, leader of GLOC, says, “We enjoy watching the kids compete in dog sports with their pet; it strengthens the bond between dog and handler. Being able to watch these kids year after year grow and become more confident in their ability to work and train dogs is rewarding.”

Lancaster County 4-H thanks the members of GLOC for donating their time and talents. People like them are indeed the heart of 4-H!
