Eastern Region 4-H All Star Members gathered in Gatlinburg for a weekend of service projects and fun. All-Star members participated in numerous service projects recently which included collecting money to purchase gas cards for cancer patients, cleaning trails and collecting snack-sized items for the Family Justice Center in Knoxville, Tenn., and many others. After completing their service projects they enjoyed sledding and ice-skating in Ober Gatlinburg. Rhea County 4-Hers Condra Lea Carter and Randy Lee Reed were initiated into the All-Stars.
One hundred-fifty 4-H members attended the All Star Conference representing 33 counties with 70 4-H members becoming All Star Members. Each new initiate shared with the group the details of a community service project that they were a part of.
Both Condra and Randy were on the 4-H Relay for Life team in Rhea County.
The emblem of the 4-H All Stars is a 4-H clover with a red, five-pointed star and a diamond chip. The red star stands for courage, which is needed to meet our daily problems. The five points of the star symbolize knowledge, strength, truth, beauty and love. The diamond is made of our most precious stone and sheds its light in the dark.
