  • In honor of Patriot’s Day, Impact 4-H Club of Carteret County, put together over 50 care packet to honor our veterans. They were distributed to the patients of the MHC VA outpatient clinic.

4-H Clubs are a great way to support long-term youth development and build community amongst our youth while instilling essential life skills such as leadership, commitment and nurturing relationships.
