CCE Chenango recognizes volunteers

NORWICH – Cornell Cooperative Extension of Chenango County recognized its volunteers of the year at the agency’s annual meeting on Dec. 14.

Louise Butcher, Jerry Michael and Jim Backus received Volunteer of the Year awards at the meeting, which took place at CCE’s 99 N. Broad Street location.



“Extension is an organization build on its volunteers,” said CCE Chenango Executive Director Ken Smith, as he introduced Louise Butcher as Association Volunteer of the Year.

Butcher, who was recently recognized by the Chenango County Youth Bureau, has a long history with CCE as a 4-H leader and with the Master Preserver and Master Clothing and Textile programs. According to Smith, she proved herself invaluable to the organization with what he called her “Herculean” efforts surrounding this year’s Chenango County Fair.
