Despite some wet and messy weather, a great time was had by all who attended this year’s Annual Meeting on March 27 at the American Legion Building at the Onslow County Fairgrounds. With free hot dogs and drinks, giveaways, plus special entertainment by Haywire, this year’s event was hard to beat.
Attendees were treated to informative and educational displays, a kids area featuring Jack the Clown, the presentation of colors by the Camp Lejeune High School Junior ROTC, and some outstanding entertainment by the Northside High School Show Choir and local bluegrass favorite Carolina Connection.
In addition, door prizes were given away throughout the night with the grand prize, a 2010 Ford F150 which was recently retired from the cooperative’s fleet, being won by member William Chadwick of Jacksonville.
