——————————————————————————————————–CCE Annual Meeting Held Nov 1 and Recognized Many Volunteers
I want to extend a personal thank you to all of our volunteers with Cornell Cooperative Extension Wayne County. More than 200 volunteers help the community by leading and mentoring youth through our 4-H program, answering and doing presentations throughout the community on home grounds and gardening questions as Master Gardeners and participating as members of our Board of Directors and various advisory committees. It is through this talented group of people that CCE can reach out to all Wayne County community members and meet the needs of the community, as determined by these committees.
This year our annual meeting was held at Dockers in North Rose. New and continuing members were elected to the Board of Directors. Continuing members elected were Tom Yale – Walworth, Vince Beltrone – Marion, Mary Abrams – Walworth. Newly elected board member was Jorge Bueso of Newark. Current Board President Kathy Madison, Sodus, was awarded special recognition as a Friend of Extension and the “retiring” Board President and Board member for the past 6 years.
Others were also awarded the “Friend of Extension Award” for going above and beyond the call of duty in their volunteer work and enthusiastically supporting all of Cornell Cooperative Extension Wayne County. These special awards were presented to: Lori Wheeler, Steve LeRoy, Audrey Ferris, Mary Ann Riker, and Sandy Hall. More information about this award and the wonderful work of each of these people is available on our website.
A special Director’s Award was presented to Laurie Frey. She stepped up as a club volunteer to focus on horticulture in her club as a growing career path for Wayne County youth and she also thought of Cornell Cooperative Extension when looking at opportunities for collaborating with Alasa Farms. It was through this connection that we now have a summer day camp at Beechwood Park.
To close the night, an entertaining and informative presentation by Dave Eichorn, meteorologist from Syracuse, provided food for thought regarding causes of global warming and fluctuating weather events. We certainly have a better appreciation for meteorologists!
Thanks to all for participating in the event and thank you to all of our wonderful volunteers!

Emergency Preparedness Resources You can Use:
General information on emergency preparedness is available through NY EDEN (Extension Disaster Education Network), a resource of Cornell Cooperative Extension. This is a collaboration with NYS Emergency Preparedness and FEMA. Check out the link to the left, at that site there are links and specific fact sheets that you would need in an emergency, like: potential source of water in a drought, what to do with food in the refrigerator or freezer when the electricity goes out, how to care for pets when supplies are limited, etc. Please check out these resources or call the office with specific questions.
Master Gardeners are no longer in the office on a regular basis. During non-hotline hours we will respond to messages left on our gardening hotline voicemail at (315)331-8415 ext. 107 or you can e-mail questions to firstname.lastname@example.org If you use our voicemail please include a daytime number where we can reach you.
The Cornell Cooperative Extension Master Gardner program is a program run with and for our specially trained volunteers. Only those volunteers who have completed 100+ hours of training and have passed an exam can consider themselves Master Gardeners. We are very proud of our dedicated group of volunteers!
