Anson County 4-H hosted its annual social and dance, the “Clover Crawl,” on Friday at Lockhart Taylor Center in Wadesboro.

The 21-and-over event was formatted as a social dance, where participants could enjoy drinks, a food buffet and entertainment.

“As a fundraiser, Clover Crawl’s mission is to have people come out, mingle, and have a good time while supporting programs that support the well-being of youth, families, and communities in Anson County,” said Sam Cole, extension agent for youth development.

He said this was the most well-attended Clover Crawl.

“The community’s response was better than expected considering it rained all night long,” Cole said. “With Clover Crawl, I generally gauge success on all the smiling faces, and people who tell me they had a good time at the event.”

Funds raised will be used to support 4-H youth programs in Anson County.

The money raised from the Clover Crawl will support programs that address the well-being of youth, families and communities in Anson County. The 4-H programs annually reach over 1,130 young people in the community. Youth participate in activities and programs such as school enrichment, summer camps, after-school programming, community service and other year-round educational programs.

This year, they will also host their summer camps.
