Black Bear Club Annual Awards Banquet

Submitted by Cindy Terwilliger

The Black Bear club held their annual Awards Banquet November 1st , at Gloria Dei Lutheran Church in Pequot Lakes. The theme was "4-H Around the World" with the setting an Italian café and the main course spaghetti. At the October meeting members made flags of different countries offering some type of 4-H, and cutouts of people with their names on them to be placed on the banner during the program.

Youth chose a country and looked online to find facts about that country's 4-H program that were read. It was very interesting to learn what 4-H is like in other countries!

Awards and recognition given yearly include:
Participation Award
Attendance Award
Adult Recognition
Shining Star Award (Cloverbuds and 3-13)
Friend of Black Bear Award

New this year was the Adult Shining Star Award which was presented to Sylvie Gilman for her dedication to our club.

The 37 who attended the banquet had a great time sharing in celebrating the achievements of the Black Bear 4-H Club youth.
