The banquet hall was replaced with a view on the green at the Kewaunee County Fairgrounds in Luxemburg Saturday afternoon as the Kewaunee County 4-H hosted its annual awards banquet. Restrictions at the state 4-H level limited what Kewaunee County could do to honor its members and volunteers. Rather than doing in front of a computer or mailing out awards, the Kewaunee County 4-H offered a drive-in experience with the back of its exposition hall serving as the stage and 104.1 WRLU playing the ceremony on the radio. Kewaunee County 4-H Jill Jorgensen says it was important to her and the volunteers to honor those who make the organization stand out.
Close to 50 members and volunteers were honored during the Saturday award ceremony, including Key Award winners Daria Ahrens, Brooklen Cloutier, and Aliza Jacobs as well as Wisconsin 4-H Hall of Fame Laureates Joe and Linda Pribek.
