Returned from Spring Tour

Monday, April 14th, 2008

I have just returned home from my Spring Tour, visiting in Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska, South Dakota, Ohio and Indiana.  In all these states, I visited with Family and Consumer Sciences professionals who are celebrating our 100th Anniversary this year and next.  They have so many activities planned and displays organized to honor each of their state histories.  There were college students at each location, too, and their excitement to hear of the past was contagious.  I heard many RICH CONVERSATIONS about why these professionals chose their life’s work, and what they had accomplished was amazing.  I listened with a keen ear as they talked about securing the future with their gifts to the AAFCS Centennial Challenge Campaign.  At Purdue University, I shared the stage with a professor, Fred Whitford, who had written a book about Virginia Meredith.  Virginia was a presenter at one of the Lake Placid Conferences.  Her remarkable career was highlighted by this very well-written book.  I am home for a few days to catch my breath before traveling off to Florida to meet with their affiliate.
