The Area 4 Floral Design CDE was held yesterday, Tuesday, September 27th
and results are in! First, thank you to area officer Abbie Dickerson for
all her help yesterday. We certainly would not have been finished so early
yesterday without her!

Also, thank you to the Toombs County FFA Alumni, the Toombs County FFA, and
the Toombs Agricultural Education teachers including Joey Montford, Mark
Montfort, Tyler Outen, and Callen Bethea for allowing us to use their
facilities and providing dinner for everyone!

*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.

Congratulations to the following winners!
These students will represent Area 4 in the State Floral Design CDE on
December 3rd at Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College.
