Pipestone Flyer

Charlie Gould of Rosalind has been inducted into the 4-H Alberta Hall of Fame in recognition of his service to 4-H and his community.

Alberta’s 4-H program is the largest youth organization in the province, developing leadership and life skills in its members since 1917

As a child, Charlie Gould joined 4-H as a beef club member under the guidance of his father, Stan, who was inducted into the 4-H Hall of Fame in 1977.

Charlie has been a leader in the Rosalind club for 35 years, running workshops on public speaking, animal health, and grooming on his farm, as well as representing the club on district and regional levels.

An active member of his community, Charlie has also served as a volunteer with the fire department, the agricultural society and local church.

“Like his father before him, Charlie Gould exemplifies the selflessness and dedication of 4-H volunteers, and stands as an example of how generations of Albertans have been a part of 4-H. It is an honour to welcome him into the 4-H Alberta Hall of Fame.” (Verlyn Olson, Minister, Agriculture and Rural Development).

The 4-H Alberta Hall of Fame has inducted 81 members since 1971. Candidates are nominated by peers and leaders from local 4-H organizations and are evaluated based on their personal qualities, demonstrated leadership, community references and contributions to 4-H, agriculture and rural life.

The selection committee includes representatives of the 4-H Council of Alberta, the 4-H Foundation of Alberta and Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development.

November 5 is, “Show your 4-H Colours Day,” the official kick off of National 4-H Month.

Established in 1917, 4-H Alberta is the largest youth organization in the province with more than 250,000 alumni.
