Pender County 4-H held their annual Achievement Night awards banquet at The Gathering Place Community Center in Burgaw, NC on February 1, 2013. There were 80 4-H members, parents, volunteers, and guests in attendance for the event. Youth were recognized for their accomplishments in 2012. Program entertainment included Rocky Point 4-H’er, Taylor Wittenrich as she danced to Alex Clare’s “Too Close.” In addition to the awards banquet, attendees brought can food items as a community service project to help benefit those in need. The can food items were donated to Burgaw Holiness Church food ministry that operates out of The Gathering Place. An estimated 200 can food items were donated to help feed the hungry.
Achievement Night is one night out of the year set aside to recognize the 4-H members who participated in 4-H activities, events, or competitions throughout the year. Along with the 4-H members, volunteers are recognized for their hard work and commitment to Pender County 4-H. Congratulations to all the 4-H members and volunteers for their efforts in 2012.
