Hayleigh McMillian placed 8th Jr./Int. Barrel Race 13 and under and Madeline McMillian placed 11th in Jr./Int. Keyhole Race 13 and under, earning one point.

Only Sr. exhibitors are invited to the Regional 4-H Horse Championships. Each class at the District show had 31-36 competitors per class from the State of Florida.

We are excited and elated to have this amazing young lady, Kayla Lindsey, to represent Gulf County at the Southern Regional Championships where she will compete against qualifiers from Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North and South Carolina, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and Florida.

We would like to give a great big ‘Thank You” to all our donors for helping make this a wonderful and memorable year for our youth. Fundraisers and donations are what assist our youth to participate in these shows and represent our county with their magnificent talents.

Thank you to the Extension Agent, 4-H Agent, all volunteers, parents and supporters for their assistance in allowing the 4-H Club youth of Gulf County to discover the best within themselves, make a positive impact in their communities and shape future leaders and innovators. Their motto is, “To make the best better.”

Area A also had the task of planning, getting food, snacks and drinks together, setting up and serving for the 4-H State Show Award Social in Tampa on Saturday night for approximately 400 youth and their parents.

Thank you to Jean McMillian, Judy Lister, Tamara McMillian, Russell McMillian, Katie Bryant of Gulf County, Terry Stout of Okaloosa County, Kristine Manos, Tony Manos and Melanie King of Gadsden County for all their assistance in making this a very unique Social for all.
