Carson Community Club of Macon County was honored with the prestigious Calico Cat Sr. Award for their significant efforts toward the improvement and upkeep of their existing community center over the past year.

Twenty-one communities were selected by the Honors Committee as being Best in Class at the Trillium, Mountain Laurel, Redbud, or White Oak level according to their demonstrated capacity to lead and serve. Clarks Chapel was awarded “Best in Class” at the Trillium level for their flowerbed beautification project.


Community Development is a program facilitated by the North Carolina Cooperative Extension Service. Its purpose is to create formal community organizations in individual communities that allow members to combine their efforts in an organized manner for the benefit of the community. The first Community Clubs in Macon County were formed in 1952. The Community Development Council consists of representatives from each of the eight participating communities.
