4-H Achievement Banquet will be different in 2020

ABILENE — Dickinson County 4-H families and alumni have a standing engagement on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving, the date of the Dickinson County 4-H Achievement Banquet. Bolstered by a 90-year tradition, the 4-H community gathers to recognize the work of 4-H members and volunteers. A meal is shared and mighty applause honors the youth and their accomplishments. But this is a year like no other and things will be done differently.
