Congratulations to all of the teams that participated in the Area 1 Middle School and Senior Lawnmower CDE's held yesterday at UGA. Special thanks to Mr. Jeff Wilkes for his assistance with setting up the courses and with scoring. I would also like to thank Area 2 FFA Officers Corey Yarbrough and Hannah Watkins for their assistance. The mowers for the Senior CDEwere provided by Howard Brothers of Athens. Please consider having your student send them a thank you letter. Their address is:
