Members of the Pender County 4-H Teen Leadership Council gathered on February 13, 2013 to take part in a “loving” community service project. The project consisted of them making Valentine’s Day cards for 40 long-term residents at Pender Memorial Hospital located in Burgaw, NC. Council members were excited as they each made cards to help spread love on Valentine’s Day to people who may not otherwise receive any kind of card or visit. The cards are scheduled to be delivered on Valentine’s Day to the residents. This is just another great example of how 4-H’ers put their hands to larger service in the community that they live in.
The next Teen Leadership Council meeting will be held on March 12, 2013 from 6:00-7:30pm in the Ag. Building Auditorium.
The council is open to all youth ages 13-18 that have an interest in gaining important life skills such as leadership, citizenship, and workforce readiness. Council members also participate in a variety of community service projects throughout the year.
