4H Awards Ceremony
Last night was the Walton Co 4H Awards Ceremony, held at Youth Middle School. My daughter, has been active in the 4H since we moved here. 4H is a great organization for local kids to get involved in their community.
Ashlyn received 3 awards: 1) Horse Quiz Bowl Team 2) DPA and 3) Georgia State Fair winner. She was also on the Horse Judging Team, as always, but unfortunately couldn't make it to state competition due to a prior obligation.
This weekend, some of the kids from 4H, Ashlyn included, are making flower arrangements to enter the Flower Show at St. Albans Church in Monroe.
Refreshments were served after the awards ceremony. They had quite a spread of cakes and cupcakes. I like the big 4H cake! I behaved and didn't have any though, just a glass of punch!
And just what do all those "H's" stand for in 4H?
Head to clearer thinking
Heart to greater loyalty
Hands to larger service
Health to better living
