During the weekend of Dec. 9-10, the Georgia 4-H Board of Directors pulled off a fun-filled weekend for Fall Forum. The theme was “4-H FAMEily, Where You Are the Star!” The weekend included a mix of workshops and educational sessions along with opportunities for networking, community service projects and exhibits. 4-H members also donated over 7,100 canned foods across the state to local food banks. This year’s participants included JaVonte Grady, Kyya Johnson, Bethany Land, T.K. McIver, Willie Spence, Justin Strickland, Micheal Woods, Evie Woodward, and Chalanda Woods as a chaperon. Micheal Woods was also selected to be an exhibitor in this year’s exhibit fair where he shared his mini-booth entitled “What A Dump!”
