  Mr. YOUNG of Iowa. Mr. Speaker, I rise to honor and congratulate 
Marge and Steve Pierce of Oakland, Iowa, on their induction into the 
Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame during a ceremony at the Iowa State Fair. 
Inductees to the Hall of Fame have demonstrated dedication, 
encouragement, commitment and guidance to Iowa's 4-H students through 
the years. Marge and Steve were nominated by the East Pottawattamie 
County Extension office.
  Marge and Steve have been dedicated volunteers for the Pottawattamie 
County Fair and the East Pottawattamie County 4-H program for over 25 
years. They are honorary members of the East Pottawattamie 4-H and have 
not missed more than one county fair in 40 years. Marge and Steve are 
the second family generation to be inducted into the Iowa 4-H Hall of 
Fame. Their commitment to 4-H in Pottawattamie County has helped set 
the standard of excellence in promoting this organization for the youth 
of this community.
  Mr. Speaker, I applaud and congratulate Marge and Steve Pierce for 
earning this award. They are shining examples of how hard work and 
dedication can affect the future of our youth. I urge my colleagues in 
the U.S. House of Representatives to join me in congratulating Marge 
and Steve for their many accomplishments in the 4-H community. I wish 
them continued success and the very best in all of their future
