The Area 4 Floral Design CDE was held yesterday, Tuesday, September 23rd and results are in! First, thank you to area officers Alyssa Rauton and Mary Kaitlyn Wheeer for all their help yesterday. We certainly would not have been finished so early yesterday without them. Also, thank you to Metter High School, Mr. Jon Milligan, and Mrs. Heather Brannen for hosting all of the events yesterday.

Advisors, please have your students take a few minutes to write a thank you note to our judges yesterday. Without them taking their time to volunteer to judge for us, this event would not have been possible. Their addresses are below.
