King George — Two new stars have been shining in the starburst galaxy over King George and Westmoreland since June.
The new additions are part of the 4H All Stars system that has lit up the community since June of 2010 when Heritage Club 4H leader Dick Lahey of Westmoreland and multiple 4H club participant Aldyn Abell of King George were “tapped” as 4H All Stars.
And this year two more King George residents were “tapped” as All Stars and pulled into this new starburst galaxy.
Fancy’s Friends 4H Dog Club founder and leader Sue Coleman and King George 4H Technician Terry Misch became All Stars in a ceremony at Virginia Tech in Blacksburg in June.
Coleman’s star lit up part one of this series and Misch’s star will shine on this second and final part.
