WNF&GA National Annual Meeting Call to Meeting Notice Change

Please allow this announcement to serve as notice to all registered members of the Woman’s National Farm & Garden Association that the 2020 National Annual Meeting will NOT be held June 3–7, 2020 in Louisville, Kentucky.

The business sessions of the meeting are scheduled as a webinar for

Saturday June 6

for the purpose of any and all business matters of the organization brought before the Executive Board and general membership attending remotely.

What Is a Webinar?
A webinar is a remote online presentation in real-time, a conversation that can be attended remotely from anywhere in the country.  A webinar will allow our members to engage in online discussions and share audio, documents or slides as a group.

This is in the development stage and updates will be forthcoming.  Please note that the planning for the National Annual Meeting in Louisville will not be wasted.  This is where we will have our National Annual Meeting in 2021.

Sincerely,
Mary Pat Ford,
WNF&GA National President

Projects

It is with great pleasure that we send a huge THANK YOU, to you, the members of Woman’s National Farm and Garden Association, for looking forward, taking the leap to change the scope of the Frysinger International Project and becoming engaged in the decision making process to choose the 2017 Frysinger International Project.

Area: Africa – East, West & Central. Society: Uyoma Food Security Self Help Project: Project No. 1025: Agok women revolving credit scheme for food security, nutrition, and education support has received a $2000.00 check to partially sponsor this project, thanks to those who have supported the Frysinger International Project Fund (formerly the Grace E Frysinger International Fellowship Fund). In brief: This organization initially held group meetings in the target village, situated on the shores of Lake Victoria, to plan the project. The community members chose fresh fruit growing, poultry rearing and fish farming as their preferred project activities. Continue reading “Projects”
