Then on Saturday, she supervised and assisted in loading 30 big round- ers from Little Cove and three trailer loads of cows and calves, which she sorted, and hauled to their farm in Sand Fork. She left for the most im portant event of the day to Jackson Mills, for the State 4-H Leaders' Rec- ognition Banquet. She has served watermelon to the Gilmer County 4- H Camp attendees one evening dur- ing camp for 48 years. Marge was presented with a beautiful plaque rec- ognizing her for her 50 years of ser- vice as a Volunteer Leader to the 4-H program.

Among the many awards she has received over her lifetime, she treasures the 4-H Alumni of the Year, Friend of 4-H and induction into the 4-H All Stars. Marge considers her success in advancing agriculture with 4-H youth as one of her greatest ac- complishments." Billy said that it was not uncom- mon for him to return home to the farm after being away all week at- tending to his responsibilities as ex- ecutive director of the United States Department of Agriculture Programs or Duties involving him as Executive Director of the State Regional Jail and Correction Authority, and see 25 cars and 40 youths and parents at their farm.

After lunch she and Billy prepared 50 pounds of beets for canning. Then she left to attend the dedication of the new Morris Correc- tion Center where the Governor in his address acknowledged Marge as a leader in the House of Delegate~ President Barr announced that Marge had contributed $25,00() to ward the renovation of the center.

The seen was planted in 1987. and through the years a grow- ing need for a facility such as has developed with the help from Gover- nor Manchin. President Barr and Sec- retary Spiers. It was because of this past involvement in the Kenney Shoe building and the regional jail andcor- rection authority that Marge desired to have Billy's past involvement ac- knowledged and recorded in the cen- ter. After attending the dedication she assisted in the birthing and helping with its first meal. the first calf of the season.
