Betty Oliver, and planning

November 20, 2015

We started the day meeting with a team from County 76 who are going to help me out when Julie is off taking care of her baby. I am extremely grateful that I have dedicated and committed volunteers who are going to help fill the void–I continue to be in awe of the Arkansas MG volunteers–no wonder our program is the best in the country~ county 76 ex planning.nov (1) I left them continuing to plan and went to the Benton Event Center to the Stepping up for Ouachita Event honoring Betty Oliver. I cannot think of a more deserving individual for this honor. Betty was my first boss at the Pulaski County Extension office and was a great leader.obu betty.nov (4)

She is one of the most giving people I know and I was honored to be invited to share in this honor for her. In addition they had a silent auction and raised money for scholarships for female students. obu betty.nov (2)

Then it was back to the office, and then Julie and I loaded up and worked on projects for the Garvan Gardens workshop on Sunday. garvan prep holiday.s15 (1)

Tonight was dinner with Chris and Charles at Terry’s in the Heights helping to celebrate their 34th wedding anniversary. I left my camera at home so no pictures. A great meal and a wonderful visit with great friends.

    I so remember Betty and her dedication. An honor earned many times over at a time where a phone was the main technology.
