HATCHERY OUTDOOR ADVENTURE Volunteers
We still need help with the 2018 Hatchery Outdoor Adventure Day which will be held on Saturday, 09/08/18, from 8:00 am to 2:30 pm. The planned project this year is called Garden in a Glove. The kids will be placing flower and/or vegetable seeds and cotton balls into the fingers of clear vinyl gloves, marking the fingers with seed type, tying them closed, and placing them in a warm sunny location at their home. The seeds germinate in the glove, and when needed are moved from the glove into pots or outdoor locations. .
We have some great volunteers already signed up, but we still need help and are looking for additional volunteers to help with this. You can either work all day, in the morning shift from 8:00 to 11:30, or in the afternoon portion from 11:00 am to 2:30 pm. Lunch is provided by Friends of the Hatchery group, and we will have lots of water and refreshments available. Once again we are anticipating between 400 to 500 kids attending our booth.
We appreciate any and all help. If you have already let me know by email, or by signing the signup sheets that you're helping then there is no need to reply again. But if you haven't and now want to help then please contact Darrell Stewart.
BAXTER COUNTY FAIR HORTICULTURAL EXHIBIT Volunteers
Baxter County Master Gardeners manage the exhibit listings for the horticulture section of the Baxter County Fair Book. We oversee the horticulture room, including the Junior and Senior Horticulture Exhibits at the Baxter County Fair. Coordinators recruit and train other Master Gardeners to register exhibits and to staff the horticulture room at fair time. An exhibit grooming table is also available to exhibitors, staffed by Master Gardeners during the fair registration hours to assist with final entry preparations. Contact Rick Gatewood if you are interested in helping September 11th-15th.
SPRING SEMINAR Chairperson
We need a chairperson for our annual Spring Seminar. Jane Druff, who has chaired this event for the last two years, has a great committee, many of whom will continue to work on this event. Jane will also lend guidance and ideas to help the new chair. The church has already been reserved for March 9, 2019, but it will soon be time to start planning. Either Jane or myself would be happy to sit down with you and answer any questions or concerns you may have about taking over this job. And I can promise the Board supports this event and the chair.
So, if you think you 'might' be willing to become Seminar Chair, please get in touch with Ceil Gasiecki; and we'll make sure we deal with any concerns. Many thanks for all your help and support.
