March 6-9, 2008 the Washington 4-H delegation joined 400 other 4-H volunteers from across the 13 western states, Canada and America Samoa in Boise , Idaho for a fantastic edition of the Western Regional 4-H Forum. I am very proud to report that Washington sent a delegation of 25. The speakers, classes and activities were all excellent. It was truly a marvelous learning experience for us all. Additionally, we honored Mary and Allen Walsh of Benton and Franklin counties as our leaders of the year. Better choice could not have been made; we are honored by Mary and Allen's outstanding service to young people. Congratulations!
