4-H Centennial Homecoming registration extended to July 1

100 Years! Wow. What an achievement. And, what a birthday!

Few organizations or companies ever reach their centennial year. But, as you know, in 2009 the North Carolina 4-H Program will celebrate 100 years. From humble beginnings in northeastern North Carolina as corn and tomato clubs, North Carolina 4-H has grown into the largest youth development program in the state. Today's 4-H is a mirror image demographically of the youth living in North Carolina between the ages of 5 and 19. Today, 4-H serves more than 204,000 young people across the state.

To celebrate this momentous milestone in our history, an exciting event has been planned. Please reserve the evening of Tuesday, July 21, 2009 for the NC 4-H Centennial Homecoming. Please register today using the on-line registration site www.nc4H.org

Special Note: Agents and 4-H Congress delegates do not need to register for this event - they will automatically be registered to attend through the 4-H Congress Registration process.

This event is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to catch up with old friends, make new ones, and celebrate our past as we position 4-H for the future.
