On Monday, March 28th, the Bacon County 4-H Drama Club debuted their spring drama production "Murder at the Banquet" by Robert W. LaVohn for the public's viewing at the Bacon County Library. We are so proud of this group of youth for their hard work and dedication. We think they put on a fantastic performance! We thank all those in attendance for supporting our Drama Club cast and hope everyone enjoyed the show!

This performance was produced by special arrangement with Pioneer Drama Service, Inc., Englewood, Colorado.

On March 1, 2022, Bacon County 4-H and Bacon County FFA held their annual Livestock Show. We had a great turn out and would like to express our appreciation to everyone who came out and supported our students at the Annual Bacon County Livestock Show and Auction! We'd also like to congratulate all our exhibitors for their hard work and dedication to the care of their animals, as well as recognize our 4-H exhibitors and their accomplishments in the show ring:

STEER:
Analyn Boatright - Jr Showmanship 2nd place, Jr Record Book 2nd place

MARKET HOG:
Lagan Spencer - Novice Showmanship 1st place, Jr Record Book 3rd place
Vera Kate Tyre - Sr Showmanship 3rd place, Sr Record Book 2nd place
Whitman Tyre - Best Average Daily Weight Gain, Jr Record Book 1st place
We all know that all heroes don't wear capes, and our farmers certainly fit into that category! As we celebrated National Ag Week this week, Bacon County 4-H teamed up with Bacon County Farm Bureau and some of our local Bacon County farmers to help educate our youth on just some of what it means to be a farmer. A very special thank-you goes out to local farmers Cory Johnson, Ron Johnson, Brandon Wade, Bradley Wade, Cory Tyre, Janie Tyre, and Denise Kennedy for stepping up to share with our youth all about agriculture, giving presentations as well as bringing in actual pieces of farm machinery for the children to view. We appreciate all our farmers for their dedication and hard work! #nationalagweek2022
We couldn't let National Ag Week end without expressing our appreciation to our farmers and agricultural industry! We say "Thank You" for sowing those seeds year after year, in spite of the risks posed by weather, pests, and bad prices. We say "Thank You" to you and your family for everything you do! We can't express it any better than Paul Harvey does in his "So God Made a Farmer" speech.
Join us in congratulating Bacon Co. 4-H'er Destiny Dallas on being selected as the winner of the 2022 Bacon County Farm Bureau Annual Art Contest. Congratulations, Destiny!!!!

One last post to celebrate our 4-H'ers who participated in SE District Jr Sr Project Achievement with photos of awards and project area demonstrations! Bacon County 4-H travelled to Rock Eagle February 11th-13th with eleven (11) 4-H'ers for a weekend of competition and fun. All of our 4-H'ers did a wonderful job presenting their demonstrations in their various project areas and went up against some stiff competition across the District. We are so proud of our Bacon County 4-H'ers for their hard work and accomplishments. A lot of effort and time goes into demonstration preparation, portfolios, and performances! We think each of them are winners simply by choosing to step out of their comfort zones and making that effort!!

Jesse Tyre - 2nd Place Public Speaking (Sr. Division)

While SED Jr Sr District Project Achievement involves competing in various project areas against counties within the Southeast district, it is so much more than a competition! It is an opportunity to gain new experiences, meet new people, and reconnect with friends from various other counties. In short...it is FUN!!! Our DPA'ers participated in assemblies, voting delegate procedures, recreational activities, hung out with friends, supported one another in their project areas, made tons of memories, and shared so many laughs with one another.

Our graduating seniors from Bacon County 4-H were honored at the Senior Reception held as a part of the 2022 Jr Sr District Project Achievement. Our seniors, Lilah Grace McClintock and Keon'dre Young, were recognized for their years of participation in 4-H, presented with their green/white graduation cords, and gifted with a beautiful hard-bound book of Georgia 4-H history. We are proud of our seniors, and know they will accomplish many great things in life!!
