StrongWomen Rock County has improved my balance and strength. However, one of the best parts is the conversation and laughter. What a wonderful way to start the day. My favorite is the regular classes(3x/week) which encourages participation.

The StrongWomen Rock County program continues to help me strengthen my bones. I always feel better after the class. The women in the class are an inspiration to "keep moving." Some have been in the program since the beginning!

After a double lung transplant in 2003, I found Strong Women a few years later. I found it gave me back muscle I had lost and enabled me to live a full life and has continued to help me through other medical issues in my life.

4-H has helped me become a better leader and has helped me become the person I am today. 4-H is very important to me. I love the opportunities they give me. I went to Japan for 1 month and will never forget it. I will never forget 4-H and how great they are.
