April 17-23, 2022 is National Volunteer Week!

Volunteer contributions to N.C. Cooperative Extension are tremendous. In addition to the 22,000 + advisory leaders across the state, there are an additional 56,000 volunteers who contributed 871,804 hours, valued at $17.1 million

These volunteers serve in such roles as 4-H leaders, Master Gardeners and Extension & Community Association members. Cooperative Extension relies on volunteers to assist with programming, marketing, advocacy and resource development, as they help to expand Cooperative Extension’s educational programs to more citizens across the state.

We would like to especially thank the many volunteers for contributing to the success of Burke County Cooperative Extension. The differences we are able to make in the lives of the citizens across Burke County are not possible without the assistance of volunteer leaders. So I want to take this opportunity to recognize those volunteer contributions, to thank all of our volunteers for all of your efforts and to let you know that you are very much appreciated.

If you are not a volunteer for Cooperative Extension, please find one and thank him or her for helping to fulfill Cooperative Extension’s Mission to partner with communities to deliver education and technology that enrich the lives, land, and economy of Burke County citizens.

Please join me in expressing thanks to all of Extension’s volunteers!
