Generations have been touched by Frock's 4-H and church leadership

Fourteen years ago — on April 12, 1998 — the Baltimore Sun carried an article about my neighbor and good friend, Kathryn Myers Frock, in which it was noted:

"The Westminster woman, who is believed to be the longest-serving 4-H volunteer in the country, was surprised recently to be honored for 58 years of volunteer service.

"Fifty-eight years? thought Frock. Why 58?

"'Maybe they don't think I'm going to be here for 60 years,' she said with a smile."

Well, Frock made it to 60 years. As a matter of fact, make that 74 years that she was a 4-H leader and volunteer fair judge.

That said, with Frock, it was not as much about the quantity of years, but the quality.

Westminster Eagle - Katie V. Jones: Kathryn Frock touts merits of 4-H life

Fair 'queen' touts merits of 4-H life 07/26/06 By Katie V. Jones

http://news.mywebpal.com/news_tool_v2.cfm?show=localnews&pnpID=978&NewsID=735396&CategoryID=17320&on=1



When Kathryn Frock joined 4-H in 1934, there were girl 4-H clubs and boy 4-H clubs. If you lived on a farm and worked with animals, however, you were allowed to belong to a "co-ed club."

In those days the fair was held in Taneytown, before moving to its current location behind the Agricultural Center in Westminster.

To build the buildings at the new site, the 4-H clubs raised money through various methods such as making moccasins and selling household "guidebooks."

At 89, Frock has more than 60 years of memories of being in 4-H, first as a member, then as a leader and currently as a judge… http://kevindayhoff.blogspot.com/2006/08/westminster-eagle-katie-v-jones-kathryn.html

Accolades mark a life of volunteering Westminster woman lauded for 4-H service April 12, 1998 By Sheridan Lyons

Accolades mark a life of volunteering Westminster woman lauded for 4-H service



The Westminster woman who is believed to be the longest-serving 4-H volunteer in the country was surprised recently to be honored for 58 years of volunteer service.

Fifty-eight years? thought Kathryn Frock. Why 58?

"Maybe they don't think I'm going to be here for 60 years," she said with a smile last week.

If there were a grandmaster of homemaking, Frock, 80, would qualify: Her skills range from the "seven-day pickles" she puts up to the carefully centered daisy buttons on a dress she made in 1936 that swept 4-H Club local, state and national needlework honors.



[…]

"This woman is phenomenal," said Bob Shirley, Carroll County's recently retired extension agent for 4-H. "The amount of volunteer work she's still doing and the number of organizations she's giving support to. And she still is a very strong, active leader," he said.
