On Sunday, October 11, 2020, New Hanover County 4-H held their 4-H Awards Day Ceremony. The celebration (originally scheduled in March 2020) was delayed due to the pandemic. To make sure all of our 4-H members, volunteers, and supporters were recognized, the 4-H Awards Day went VIRTUAL. The ceremony was broadcast LIVE over Zoom. We were honored to have Vice-Chair Patricia Kusek of the New Hanover County Commissioners bring greets on behave of the county commissioners. Joining Vice-Chair Kusek, was Commissioner Rob Zapple.
