MP John Nater praises Wellington County 4-H

OTTAWA - Perth-Wellington MP John Nater said 4-H has created a lasting legacy in Canada during an address in the House of Commons on Nov. 2.  

“For 100 years, young people in Wellington County have been pledging their heads to clearer thinking, their hearts to greater loyalty, their hands to larger service, and their health to better living,” said Nater. “As a former 4-H member, it was an honour to speak at the 100th anniversary of 4-H in Wellington County last Saturday night in Arthur.”

Nater added, “For 100 years, Wellington County 4-H has proudly supported youth and agriculture, using the hands on philosophy of ‘Learn To Do By Doing.’ Whether learning a new skill, developing leadership skills, or making lifelong friendships, 4-H in Canada has created a lasting legacy for generations.”

The MP congratulated Wellington County 4-H on a century of preserving local agricultural heritage and “protecting our rural way of life.”

 Nater thanked club members, leaders, and alumni “for all they have done for agriculture in Wellington County and in Canada.”
