Rose Jergens, Master Gardener,Celebrates 100!

| 1 Comment
In early May, Master Gardener Rose Jergens recently celebrated her 100th birthday (Doesn't she look fantastic!) Nathan Winter, EE and Master Gardener coordinator - Meeker / McLeod, told me Rose has been a Master Gardener since 1983. Rose was one of the first Master Gardeners in McLeod County and she took the core course in 1983. I thought this was pretty cool, so thought I'd share it on my blog.

Rose (front & center) is pictured with a framed certificate from the McLeod County Extension Office commemorating her accomplishments. Pictured with Rose is McLeod-Meeker County Extension Educator, Nathan Winter (front left) and retired Extension Educator, Joe Neubauer (front right). Also pictured in the back (left to right) include long time McLeod County Master Gardeners Marian Filk, Kathy Fabel, and Janet Dolezal.

What a great milestone! Happy birthday Rose!
