David Quick Memorial Awards Presented

Marilyn Quick and her family present the David Quick Memorial Award to Abbey Puzo.

The David Quick memorial fund was established by the Quick family to honor David by reminding 4-H members and leaders in Susquehanna County of how important the 4-H program was to David. In his youth, David was a 4-H member and then became a long time 4-H leader in the Rushville 4-H Club. The memorial fund recognizes outstanding 4-H accomplishments of Susquehanna County 4-H members.

At the Harford Fair youth dairy shows, two current 4-H dairy members received this special award, a savings bond and plaque. The awards are given to the champion owner breeder in both the Holstein and the Colored Breed Shows. This year's recipients were Jessie Sartell and Abbey Puzo.

Jessie received her award at the Harford Fair Holstein Youth Show. This is her seventh year showing Holsteins in 4-H. The Holstein Jessie showed to win this honor was Dymond-S Durham Lena. During her years in 4-H, Jessie has participated in the 4-H District and State Dairy Shows, Dairy Camp, State Achievement Days and Dairy Judging. Jessie rounds out her 4-H involvement by taking other 4-H projects, including horse, poultry and shooting sports.

Abbey was selected from all the qualifying youth colored breed exhibitors at the Colored Breed Shows during the Harford Fair. Abby's spring calf, Goff Farms Lyon Lily-Red earned her this special award. For Abbey, winning this award was a very special because when she was four years old, her grandparents bought her her first show calf from Dave Quick. Dave was always anxious to help a young person get started showing dairy animals and that's just what he did for Abbey. Abbey has shown dairy animals every year since Dave got her started with a little Jersey calf. Abbey now shows Holsteins, both black and white and red and white.
