Honoring women! and work in the office

March 8, 2017
Who knew today was International Women’s Day –a day to celebrate the amazing contributions women make to our world and our future–and our Master Gardener program.  While we do have outstanding men in our MG organization, I want to thank the fabulous women who are leading our County 76 organization–Linda Soffer  and Patsy Louk, president and VP, along with past president Jane Burrows, secretary Barbie Luther, treasurer Janice Dickerson and I don’t want to exclude our lone man on the executive board David Anderson.
We have strong women all over the state of Arkansas leading MG programs or projects and involved in horticulture as well as strong men!
I saw this quote today and I think it is profound:  “Do not wait for someone else to come and speak for you. It’s you who can change the world.” – Malala Yousafzai
We all can change the world, one step at a time.  It is not the number of people you impact but the fact that you impact someone.  Master Gardeners impact people every day in such positive ways across our state.  Thank you both women and men for being a part of our program and working with your county agents and other volunteers to make a difference in your communities and in our programs!  I appreciate each and every one of you for all you do!
