The Women's Auxiliary of the VSHS
Women’s Auxilary Annual Meeting
The Women’s Auxiliary held its annual meeting on Wednesday, January 23, 2013 at the Holiday Inn Koger Conference Center, in Richmond Virginia.
President Linda Edwards conducted the meeting, and the standing officers and committee chairs gave reports of activities in the past year.
Highlights of these activities include the selection of Rachel Moore Russell, daughter of Kirk and Sherry Russell, of Frederick County, as our 2013 Apple Ambassador. We are so pleased to have Rachel represent our industry in the Shenandoah Apple Blossom Festival and throughout the year as opportunities arise.
Also reported was another enjoyable and successful Ladies Luncheon in 2012 with noted author, Jay Foreman, as our speaker. The luncheon was publicized in the Winchester Star and in Chester Magazine online this year. Financially, the luncheon benefited both the Apple Blossom Festival and the scholarships awarded to students studying Horticulture at VPI & SU.
The students chosen to receive these scholarships of $1000 each in 2013 are Brittaney Nelson and Carly Reynolds.
