Extension honors its volunteers
PRINCETON — The efforts of more than 400 Bureau County area volunteers were recognized last week during the National Volunteer Week sponsored by the University of Illinois Extension program.
Jennifer Caldwell, 4-H and Youth Development Program coordinator for Bureau, LaSalle, Marshall and Putnam counties, said that 400 number of regular, sustained volunteers does not include persons who also volunteer occasionally with the local Extension for specific programs or needs. All volunteers are needed and appreciated, she said.
People are basically never too young or too old to volunteer through the Extension. The local Extension program has youth volunteer opportunities through the 4-H program which starts at age 5. The Extension has numerous senior citizens who also volunteer their time, she said.
