The new officers were installed on Tuesday during the daytime meeting of the Blount County Master Gardeners. The meeting was well attended with over 50 members and guest present. I was real glad to see 13 of the new Master Gardener Interns present at the meeting.
The installation was handled by Frankie Neel who always does an outstanding job of challenging and encourages each officer to make the organization as great as possible. A big thanks for Frankie for handling the task once again.
The new officers are Barbara Andersen President, Angela Powers Vice President, Nancy Deason Treasurer, Andrea Choron Secretary.
We had a great presentation on Medical Gardens by Antonia Viteri, who also presented at the Fall Conference.
Our next meeting will be on February 7th from 11:30 to 1:30 at the Frank Green Building. Bring a dish and a friend and join us for another great meeting.
We will be taking down the lights at Palisades in a few days and based on the weather forecast we will decide which day in the next 10 or 12 days. Barbara will send an email out to everyone.
