Tree Work Day: Can’t get in fairgrounds today so changing to next Monday

Country Living Fair needs Monday (tonight) through Thursday to set up for their Fair for Friday through Sunday…so no work at the fairgrounds this week. Tonight’s work evening is cancelled.

If it’s alright with everyone–Let’s change it from tonight (Monday) to next Monday afternoon/evening April 25th.

We can spruce up our tree circles—or if you would like air conditioning from 5:30 on we will be putting together goody bags for Spring Fest. We will be doing various other things like drawing on chalkboards, putting up signs, making baskets. Bring a sack dinner if you like.

Text me 615 260-1190 if you think you can make it.

Also if anyone wants to bring cool garden items or homemade items that you would like to donate to the Silent Auction to help Fiddlers Grove that is always welcomed.

Thank You, Thank You!

Carol Walenga

PS: Remember WCMG now counts drive time as volunteer hours (so if it takes 30 minutes in and 30 minutes home—you need to add an hour of volunteer time to your “Outreach” hours Thanks again!

WCMG Email Problems

Master Gardeners, we are experiencing problems with our wilsoncountymg email account again. Twice in the last week email messages to the entire group were not delivered by Gmail. In addition, I was not notified that the messages were not delivered until 36 hours and 24 hours after they were sent. If this continues, we will be forced to use some other email outlet. I hope it does not come to that.

In the meantime, I will continue to use the email account because the majority of our email messages are being delivered. However, until this problem is resolved, I will duplicate group email messages here on the website. Obviously, for this to work you will have to check the website. I realize this is a hassle, but with luck we will work our way through this quickly.

We are busy getting the Ag Center and Fiddlers Grove garden beds ready for spring and summer, so we are likely to have many workdays where your help is needed. Please check the website frequently for any volunteer opportunities. Even if you receive emails  from the WCMG account, please check the website occasionally to make sure an important message or announcement is not being held up by Gmail.

For the record, the subjects and dates of the messages that were not delivered, or not delivered in a timely manner, were:

  • WCMG Meeting – Tuesday, 4 April 2017: sent Monday morning, 3 April 2017
  • Work Day Cancelled Today: sent Thursday morning, 6 April 2017

Thank you for your cooperation. I hope to have this problem resolved soon.
