It was an evening of fashion on Monday April 13th, 2009 at the Brunswick County Center of the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service Training Center as eight local 4-Hers showed off their sewing talent at the annual 4-H Fashion Revue. Following a warm welcome from Blair Green, Extension 4-H Agent, and the reciting of the Pledge of Allegiance and the 4-H Pledge, it was time for the main event. Leslie Wilson, 4-H Program Assistant, narrated as the Brunswick County youth showed off their sewing projects. The Partners-in-Learning Participants (Ages 5-8) were Lydia Lewis and Rosemarie Yurgel. Partners-in-Learning participate non-competitively and receive a Participation Ribbon. Preteen Participants (Ages 9-11) were Mary Ellen Lewis and Amber Yurgel. Lewis received 1st place and Yurgel received 2nd place in this age division. Darby Dawkins was the single competitor and 1st place winner in the Junior Teen Participants (Ages 12-13). Lastly, the Teen Participants (Ages 14-18) were Lucille Bruno, Dorothy Conley, and Tori Norris. Champion in this age division was Tori Norris. Norris will have the opportunity to compete at 4-H Congress in July. Conley received 2nd place and Bruno received 3rd place.
