Chilton County Celebrates 40th MGA Anniversary

Chilton County Master Gardeners celebrated the fortieth anniversary of Alabama Extension Master Gardeners Volunteers with a luncheon at the Chilton Research and Extension Center. We enjoyed visiting with retired CEC Gay West and retired 4H Agent Josine Walters. The crew at CREC also joined us for lunch and a delicious chocolate celebration cake. Hurricane Ida gave us cooler but damp weather so we headed home to watch the ACES Zoom presentation. Thanks to Mary Lou McNabb and Extension Agent Gary Murray for starting the very first Master Gardener class in Alabama. Thanks also go to Elouisa Stokes (40 active MG years), Tony Glover and Dave Williams for their contributions to the Master Gardener Extension Program. Photos by Gay West and Pat Farmer.
