National 4-H Week observed in Alderson and Lewisburg

The Greenbrier County Chapter, West Virginia 4-H All Stars, the state 4-H leadership honorary, observed National 4-H Week in October by donating flags to the cities Alderson and Lewisburg. Four flags were donated to the city of Alderson by the 4-H All Stars in honor and memory of the late James E. Johnson Jr., long time Greenbrier County 4-H agent and lifelong resident of Alderson.
Two flags were displayed on the Greenbrier County side and two on the Monroe County side while the 4-H flags in Lewisburg were displayed primarily on the side streets.
The County Chapter of 4-H All Stars serve the county 4-H clubs and members with camp scholarship on a county and state level as well as other supportive activities.
In addition, the 4-H All Stars provided support to the publication of “The First 100 Years, a history of Greenbrier County 4-H” which was authored by Johnson and a limited number of copies are still available through the Greenbrier County office of the WVU Extension Service, located across US 219 South from the state fairgrounds exit grate.
