I hope all of you had a great holiday and Happy New Year! It was a busy one for all of us, but I hope you took the time to appreciate all your blessings.
JD Lanier, our 2014 County Council President, is already planning some great events for our program. Please keep an eye out of emails, website updates and flyers regarding those!
Craven County 4-H did an excellent job fundraising in 2013. Our local Tractor Supply Store was honored with the Reserve Grand Champion award for being the store that had the highest percentage (69.2) of clover sales during their fall Clover Campaign. Keep up the good work! All clover sales go to Craven and Jones county 4-H programs.
As always, check out our newsletter for special events, keep an eye on both websites (http://craven.ces.ncsu.edu or http://cravencounty4h.shutterfly.com) for the latest information!
If you are interested in animals, music or horticulture there are new groups just waiting for you to join.
Please feel free to call me (252.633.1477) or email me (firstname.lastname@example.org) at any time
