Caitlin Miller, extension agent for family and consumer sciences in Prince Edward County, presented on gardening and gleaning.

“She encouraged members to donate their extra garden produce to FACES Food Pantry or ‘Grow a Row’ so that extra vegetables can be given to those on a small, limited budget,” officials said in a press release.

Blue ribbons were awarded to Dottie Fahrner, Janet Higgins, April McBride and Sarah Schember for “On the Road Again,” which was a flower arrangement featuring a vehicle. Red ribbons were received by Liz Dunn, Mary Hazlegrove and Ann Ligon. “High Five,” a mass flower arrangement using a collection of five different types of flowers, earned blue ribbons for Janet Higgins, Ann Ligon and Nancy Schaeffer. The release cited Schaeffer also received four blue ribbons for her horticulture specimens and three red ribbons.
