A message fromCharlie Faulkner, President

Thanks Master Gardeners!

For more than forty years I have been privileged to lead a financial cooperative whose purpose is to help people help themselves, and it is very gratifying to hear heartfelt stories from our members that we help transform from despair to hope. Is this not the plan and purpose for Master Gardeners, too? Absolutely! And you are doing a wonderfully amazing job.

The year 2019 has been appropriately referred to as fabulous and fast. We can’t control the speed of life, but when we serve cooperatively toward a common goal we achieve fabulous results and time simply zips away. So whether we lead or follow, let us continue humbly, enthusiastically, and with heartfelt compassion as we endeavor to restore hope to often troubled people in a troubled world.

Lastly, this is my final message for Roots & Shoots, and my term as President will end at the conclusion of the upcoming Graduation Banquet. It has been a remarkable experience for me, and I will remain forever grateful for each of you for your strong support that made our meetings successful and our mission achievable; and you have encouraged me to continue my career-long mission — to help people help themselves.

Sincere thanks!

Charlie Faulkner
