Effingham County 4-H’ers recently attended Fall Forum at the Rock Eagle 4-H Center,.
Fall Forum is an educational and recreational opportunity planned and conducted by the Georgia 4-H State Board of Directors, an elected group of nine high school officers from across the state.
This year’s conference, themed “4-H Fame-ily: Where You Are the Star,” included workshops, exhibits and service projects led by high school 4-H’ers. The conference also included networking and recreational activities, a performance by Georgia 4-H’s performing arts group Clovers & Company, a dance and a 4-H 4K Run.
The weekend included workshop sessions taught and prepared by high school 4-H’ers, exhibits from Fall Forum attendees and youth-led community service projects. Additional recreational programming also gave 4-H’ers opportunities to interact with youth from all over Georgia.
Attending Fall Forum from Effingham County were Tristan Hanafin, Emily Jarriel, Payton Mercer, Olivia Mew, Mallory Morgan, Lauren Usher and Rebecca Velasquez. Serving as chaperones for the group for the weekend was Effingham County 4-H volunteer leaders Johnna Stringer and Leigh Varnadoe.
