Chapter History of Awards

 

Our Master Gardener chapter has given out various awards at least as far back as 1990. There are often problems when you get into the way-back machine. The most common problem is that someone way-back then didn’t write down and pass on the essential information! We present here what we know about past awards. Perhaps there is an MG out there with more knowledge!

As you can see, there has been a tendancy to expand the number of awards over the years, as well as to honor multiple MGs with the same award. Actually, there have been occasional awards since 2010 for Phone Clinic Mentors, Rookie of the Year, Explorers, Mt. Tabor Church Landscape, Forward Thinking, Demo Garden, IE Sale, Peninsula Park Rose Garden, Lettuce Grow, Communication, Finance, Fund Raising, International Rose Test Garden, Chapter Liaison, and Farmer’s Market. Details on those must wait for a Filing Cabinet Update. If you've got knowledge of awards not mentioned above, send a note to MCMG.enews@gmail.com and we'll pass it on.
