Thanks for support of 4-H/FFA event

The Fredericksburg 4-H/FFA Livestock Show and Sale was a wonderful opportunity for our local youth to showcase their dedication and hard work.

My boys--Colin, Carson and Connor Gray--were participants, and I could not be more proud of them or the entire Stafford County Livestock Club.

In the show ring and in the stockyard, our members helped one another and encouraged each other. My boys assisted Camden and Kaleb Chilton with caring for and showing their goat projects. The Chilton boys did a fantastic job, as well.

I would like to thank our 4-H leaders and 4-H parents, who spend countless hours helping with projects, organizing meetings and providing a shoulder to cry on before, during and after.

A huge "thank you" goes out to all the local business owners whose generous support helps our kids year after year.

Covenant Funeral Service, CFC, Southern States, Greenline, Stafford Farm Bureau, Roxbury Mills, Agriservice, Silver Ridge Farm, Waterloo Fencing, Chad Young Landscaping and Blythedale Farm are just a few.

Nicholls Auction provides its service for the auction and does a fantastic job. We could not continue this event without their help.

We are looking forward to next year's show and sale.
