4-H and the Fair have always held a special place in the heart of Lewis Reyman. The Woodbury County Fair Board is pleased to honor his remarkable 30-years of service as a Director on our Board. After honorably serving his Country as a member of the United States Army during the Korean Conflict, he returned home and began farming near Cushing. He and his wife Virginia served as leaders of the Rock-Kee-Union 4-H Club for many years. The couple instilled the core values of 4-H in the lives of countless youth; but especially that of service in their children Dennis, David, and Denise.
Lewie was a six-year member of the Woodbury County Extension Council, serving two years as the Chairman. His family was inducted into the Iowa 4-H Hall of Fame in 2017. Lester Groepper, Virginia’s father first served on the Fair Board and encouraged his son-in-law’s initial involvement. Lewie and Virginia’s legacy of service continues on as both David and Denise currently serve as the third generation of family members elected to the Woodbury County Fair Board. Recently, David’s daughter-in-law became the fourth generation to volunteer her time and talents to the Board. The Woodbury County Fair and our 4-H Program is fortunate to have benefited from the years commitment from the entire Reyman family.
