The St. Tammany LSU AgCenter celebrates, another great year, another beautiful fall and another great class of Master Gardeners. This year was one of the largest in recent years with 29 graduating the horticulture training. Class members endured the 18 three-hour long classes, three horticulture tours and the always “popular” final exam. Many of this year’s class have volunteered their time with the Butterfly Festival, St. Tammany Parish Fair, Herb Festival and Fall Gardening seminar. Even though those hours will not count toward their 40 hours obligation, the class has been enthusiastic in helping with horticulture education. Let’s continue to encourage their involvement throughout 2011.
On Thursday, Oct. 28, 2010, Dr. Paul Coreil, Vice Chancellor and Director of LSU AgCenter, presented diplomas and name badges to a full room of graduates and their guests. The 2010 St. Tammany Master Gardener graduates included: Vince Accardo, Debbie Adams, Susie Andres, Paul Andres, Claudia Arseneaux, Joanne Bassett, Bob Beter, Michelle Chappetta, Mark Flynn, Ann Gilbert, Peggy Goertz, Kappy Goodwin, Wes Goostrey, Ty Guidroz, Kathleen Guidry, Cheri Hall, Gail Hinkley, Susie L’Hoste, Susie Koepp, David Lynd, David Martin, Lorraine Martin, Lyn Monteleone, Bert Murray, Karla Partridge, Katelyn Peat, Pam Peltier, Anna Ribbeck and Lynne White. Please join us in congratulating and welcoming them at the next association meeting, Nov. 17, 2010 at 10:00 a.m.
