4-H Members Are Asked to Lead the Pledge of Allegiance at County Commissioner Meetings

— Written By

Learning about citizenship is an important part of 4-H. Leading the Pledge of Allegiance at Henderson County Commissioner Meetings is an honor for 4-H club members, and an opportunity to learn about the people who make important decisions for our county. It’s also a great opportunity to see our governing officials use parliamentary procedure as they vote about a variety of items, and watch the democratic process as community members and county staff members speak to the Commissioners about local issues.

Henderson County Commissioners usually meet on the first Monday of each month at 5:30 p.m. and the third Wednesday of each month at 9:30 a.m. Meetings are held upstairs in the Historic Courthouse on Main St. in Hendersonville. The meetings are recorded and can be seen on Henderson County Government Channel 11. Learn more about the Commissioners and see their meeting agendas and minutes.

Henderson County 4-H members are asked to lead the Pledge of Allegiance at the Monday evening meetings. First on the agenda for each meeting is an invocation, followed by the pledge, and public comment. Pledge leaders, and their families or 4-H clubs, are asked to stay for at least 30 minutes of the meeting. Contact Denise Sherrill, 4-H Agent, at Denise_Sherrill@ncsu.edu or call 697-4891 if you would like to lead the Pledge. An adult will need to go with you.
