Dorothy Montgomery is celebrating 70 years as a volunteer for Muskingum County 4-H. The local 4-H committee has several plans to honor her throughout 2024.

Individuals impacted by her time as a 4-H volunteer are encouraged to submit handwritten notes and photos with their favorite 4-H memory or story of Montgomery's impact to the Ohio State University of Muskingum County Extension Office, 225 Underwood St. Submissions will be put in a scrapbook and presented to Montgomery on Sunday of the Muskingum County Fair during the 4-H awards ceremony.

The committee is also conducting a $70 for 70 years campaign to benefit the Muskingum County 4-H Endowment Fund in her honor. Donations of any amount are welcome, as the committee hopes to announce a substantial contribution to the endowment fund during the fair.  

Contributions can be made to the Muskingum County 4-H Endowment Fund at The Ohio State University Foundation, P.O. Box 710811, Columbus, Ohio 43271 or give online at Indicate fund #605084, in honor of Dorothy Montgomery, with your donation.
