I got charged with furnishing alcohol to a minor, a misdemeanor. However, the D.A. gave me an offer to complete 10 Alcoholics Anonymous meetings along with 10 days of community labor, and then the charge would become dismissed. I was never arrested. After I complete all of that, will the charge be expunged and removed permanently from my record?

It should show as a dismissal. Expungement is a separate procedure, but it won't help you since the end result of an expungement is a dismissal and you have that already.
The only thing I can think of to remove the misdemeanor from your record (aside from a governor's pardon) is a sealing on the basis of factual innocence. Those, however, require meeting a very high standard -- so high, in my experience, that it is rarely granted.
