Each year, the Fulton County 4-H program recognizes the volunteers at an Advisor Banquet for their contributions and years of service.

Special recognition in various categories is awarded to those individuals who exemplify the qualities and support of the program or have gone above and beyond.

2018 Friend of 4-H: Duane Gordon. A United Parcel Service employee for more than 20 years, Gordon is a longtime helper of the county’s 4-H program, with a reputation as a “sure fire” volunteer. He can be spotted around the county fairgrounds throughout the year assisting with improvement projects and activities.

Gordon has been married to his wife, Mary, for 30 years, and has two daughters. He is known to volunteer when he isn’t on the job.

2018 Outstanding 4-H Alumni: Steve Fenicle. As a 10-year member of the county’s 4-H program, Fenicle was active with the Junior Fair Board and as a camp counselor. He served as 4-H King in 1988, and as Junior Fair King in 1989.

As an adult, Fenicle became a 4-H advisor, and served as head advisor for four years for the Incredible Clovers club. He is currently president of the 4-H Advisory Council and a 4-H camp adult staffer, volunteering at the camp in several capacities for 37 years. He is also a member of the Friends of Camp Palmer, and has attended the Ohio Volunteer Conference in Columbus, serving there on the silent auction committee.
