The J. D. Thompson Alumni Association would like to thank Mr. Elijah Moore, Outreach Workshop coordinator from the Coosa Valley Resource Conservation & Development Council, for holding a very informative workshop on March 21 at the Alumni Building in Cottage Grove.
Mrs. JoEtta Maxwell, Alumni president, welcomed the workshop speakers Elijah Moore, Tammy Martin – farm loan officer, James Dawson – district conservationist, Dr. William East – commercial horticulturist, Spencer Hardy – RC&D programs, Janice Kilgore – district administrator coordinator Coosa Soil & Water, and Sharon Haynes – Extension Services coordinator to the Alumni Building.
Information packets were available for each of the 40 attendees. Refreshments were enjoyed, door prizes were handed out, and everyone went home with seeds and fertilizer to start their spring gardens.
We also would like to thank volunteers, Mrs. Juanita McElarth and Zykia McElarth, for their work at the registration table. Mr. Unzell Kelley, retired county commissioner, and Ms. Niesha Whetstone, Rockford Town Council member, were also present to assist with the event.
The USDA EQIP Outreach Conservation Program Workshop is sponsored by the Coosa Valley RC&D Council and the USDA-Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS). The J. D. Thompson Alumni Association looks forward to hosting other workshops with them in the Cottage Grove community.
