A new 4-H Club has been established in Moore County with an emphasis in Performing Arts. The group of kids ages 9 and up recently visited Tara Plantation Assisted Living Home after less than a month of holding their first official meeting.
The Club treated the residents with interpreted musical numbers and handed out Valentine cards. A Club member, Sarah Baker, 11, stated, “I enjoyed performing in front of the residents at Tara Plantation and hoped that the club brought joy and kindness to all.”
This club was ignited by a summer program offered by Moore County 4-H where campers worked on a short play. The campers enjoyed it so much they wanted to start a year-round club.
The Club’s main purpose is to learn and grow in arts-related activities in Moore County while keeping with the 4-H motto, “To Make the Best Better”.
The Moore County 4-H Performing Arts Club (PAC) meets on Fridays at Vass United Methodist Church. The Club is working on putting together a show in May and is actively seeking new members age 9 through high school.
