Fall Frenzy provided fun for Bleckley 4-H members.

(Courtesy BleckleyProgress.com contributor.) With everything being cancelled due to COVID-19, Bleckley 4-H knew something needed to be done to provide youth with a fun, safe fall event. Leaders put their heads together and came up with a Fall Frenzy held October 24 held at the Bleckley County cross country course.
Youth could sign up for any of the seven contests offered: Scarecrow, Pumpkin Decorating, Cupcake Decorating, Pie Eating, Variety Show, Decorated Agriculture, and Mini-Booth. There were 138 entries, and the event was a huge success. Once again, Bleckley County youth proved their creativity with the awesome entries.

Bleckley 4-H would like to give a big thank you to the following sponsors: Bembry Veterinary Clinic, Berryhill Lawncare, Bleckley Sherriff’s Department, Bob and Cheryl Little, Bonnie and Randy Raffield, Cochran Eye Center, Chris and Carla Coley, Connie Dupree, David Hall, Davis Propane, Don and Ramona Giles, Dykes Pharmacy, Eric and Staci Bisher, Four County Bank, Great Oaks Bank, Jackie Wilson, JC White Horseshoeing and Trim, Julia Lucas, Kace Kirkpatrick, Kari Coody, Kathy Baldwin, Kim Wright, Kris and Angie Coody, Lindsey Dykes - State Farm Agent, Paige Baggs - Tax Commissioner, Possum Pottery, Real Turf Solutions, Terry and Catherine Belflower.
