We had great participation in the Area VI Floral Design Contest yesterday.  There were 17 students that participated in the Junior event and 13 students taking part in the senior competition.  Thank you all for working with your students to help prepare them for this event.   

A special thank you to Berrie Allen and her officer team for hosting as well as Audrey Davis and UGA Tifton students for their assistance.

Please ask your floral design participants to take a moment and send a quick thank you note to our judge:
