Pender County Employees Celebrate Christmas

BURGAW -- The third annual Pender County Christmas party brought all county employees together and put business on hold.

All non-essential services were closed for two hours Friday, as employees sang a Pender County version of "The Twelve Days of Christmas." Instead of ten lords a-leaping, they wanted ten bonus checks.

The county chairman says it's a good way to take a break and get to know new people.
