As we celebrate the 100th Anniversary of 4-H in North Carolina, show your pride in the clover by purchasing a NC 4-H Specialty License Plate for your car or truck!

 

With over 239,000 youth, 22,900 volunteers and close to one million alumni across the state, what better way to recognize the youth development program that helped you make your best better!

 

We still need more paid applications for the state to establish the NC 4-H Specialty License Plate! Please support the generations of 4-H’ers who will come after you by purchasing a plate for $30. 

 

*Submit your application and get a friend to do the same and the 4-H Development Fund will cover the cost of one license plate for the first year. It’s buy one get one free from now until August 15, 2009! *

Andy’s Pancake Fundraiser February 26, 2009

Thank you to those of you who participated in the Andy’s fundraiser.  Thanks to all of our dedicated 4-Hers, this fundraiser was a huge success for our county 4-H program.  You did an excellent job as wait staff and welcoming customers.  A total of 104 tickets were sold and in addition, $120 was given in donations and tips, so we ended up bringing in $640 for our program.  Here are a few pictures from Saturday morning.
