DECORAH — Ann Moen, of Decorah, has been named the 2013 Winneshiek County inductee into the Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame. Moen will receive her award alongside inductees from other counties at the Iowa State Fair in August.

Moen has affected the 4-H program and community in many ways. She worked for Iowa State University Extension in Winneshiek County as an office assistant from 1980 until she retired in 2012. Moen was the first person people saw when they walked in the door to the Extension Office. She was instrumental in the production of materials for the county fair and also was good at calling and finding answers to people's questions when they came into the Extension Office. Over the years, Ann has helped hundreds of 4-H youth and 4-H leaders by providing support with paperwork, resources and questions.

Moen also has served as a 4-H leader for the Washington Prairie Peppers for over fifteen years.

She guided many members through projects, presentations and animal showing. Moen also served

at the 4-H Restaurant during the fair, helped design and put together the club booth and continually

encouraged members to try hard. She worked well with other leaders and made sure the meetings

were both fun and full of learning experiences.

Moen has touched many lives through her dedication, encouragement, commitment and guidance to

the Winneshiek County 4-H Program. Previously, she was recognized with several awards, including the Honorary 4-H Award and the Meritorious Service Award.

Moen and her husband Duane live in Decorah. They have two adult children, Ron (Kathy) and Wendy;

and three grandchildren, Abby, Morgan and Jonathan.
