The Virginia Carolinas Morgan Horse Club held its annual general meeting and awards ceremony at the Brier Creek Country Club in Raleigh, N.C. Three members of the club were recognized for their many contributions to the club over the years. Nancy Warren received the Barbara Beaumont Cole Service Award while Harry and Mary Daughtry received the Jack Benny Award.
