Pictured above are local girls between sixth and eighth grades participating in the Celebrate Girls workshop sponsored by 4-H. During this workshop, topics discussed included money management, peer pressure, decorating and keeping in shape.

“Learning their self-worth and gaining knowledge, the most refreshing thing for me is seeing the girls raise their hands to ask questions showing that they want to learn,” expressed Cathy Judd.
