Little; held many workshops and training sessions; and shared their knowledge and talents with thousands of non-members.
Polly Reese was recognized as the county A&P nominee. Pinkie Mosteller and Velma Robertson were named county VEEP winners. Lowesville EHA won the Outstanding Project Award for adoption of a family with four children at Christmas.
