100 Years! Wow. What an achievement. And, what a birthday!
Few organizations or companies ever reach their centennial year. But, as you know, in 2009 the North Carolina 4-H Program will celebrate 100 years. From humble beginnings in northeastern North Carolina as corn growing clubs, North Carolina 4-H has grown into the largest youth development program in the state. Today’s 4-H is a mirror image demographically of the youth living in North Carolina between the ages of 5 and 19. With the support of over 22,980 volunteers we now serve more than 239,000 young people.
To celebrate this momentous milestone in our history, an exciting event has been planned. Please reserve the evening of Tuesday, July 21, 2009 for the “NC 4-H Centennial Homecoming.” This event will be a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to catch up with old friends, make new ones, and celebrate our past as we position 4-H for the future.
Send your email address to firstname.lastname@example.org to be placed on the email invitation list!!Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to come and be a part of history in the making. Details and an official invitation will follow in early April 2009.
