Congratulations to each and every student who competed in the Area 3
Floriculture CDE yesterday.   I thought the contest was a great success.
Advisors, thank you for working with your students in preparing them for
this contest.  Please express my gratitude to all of the FFA members who
participated for their cooperation, patience and excellent conduct.

A big thanks to Area Officers, Alex Waldroup and Dustin Blohm for helping
with registration and with the CDE.  Another big thanks to Fort Valley
State University for hosting the event and to ag ed majors Amanda Noll,
