Meet The 2022 Larimer County Fair Grand Marshals 

Bob and Debbie Dehn have been volunteering in and around Northern Colorado since first moving to Loveland 43 years ago from New Jersey.

According to the fair's official website, Bob has coached dozens of youth sports teams over the years, while Debbie served as a teacher in the local community, as well as a youth advisor and Board Member for local APHA and AQHA horse clubs; the couple also has a long-reigning history volunteering with the Community Kitchen and the Interfaith Hospitality Network.

In 1992, the Dehn children joined the Hoof Beats 4-H club - which ultimately served as the introduction to the couple's involvement with the Larimer County 4-H program and growing connection to the agricultural community of Northern Colorado.

Debbie even signed up as a 4-H leader for goat and horse and still serves as a horse project leader for the Desperados 4-H Club, as well as the co-superintendent for the horse program at the Larimer County Fair.

The Dehn's involvement in the local community is something the entire family partakes in to some degree - the couple's daughter, Kristi, and daughter-in-law, Hilary, serve as 4-H leaders in Larimer County.

Bob Dehn currently serves on the Loveland Construction Advisory Board and has been serving on the advisory committee for the construction of the new 4-H horse and livestock building at The Ranch Events Complex.

Collectively, the couple has worked with organizations and programs for youth at risk and children with special needs, and the two have both been very actively involved with Hearts and Horses Therapeutic Riding Center in Loveland since 2009.
