"Welcome to the HRF Board"

Now that everything is official, it's okay for me to let the cat out of the bag ...



I received the following message via email earlier this morning:

Hi Connie,

It's with great pleasure that I welcome you to the Board of Directors for the Heritage Rose Foundation. Your term will start January 1, for three years.

Welcome!
stephen


(The "stephen" is Stephen Scanniello, the current president of HRF.)

I am very proud, and more than a little bit star struck, to have been asked to serve on the HRF Board beside some of the people who inspired my passion for roses in the first place.  I'm also kind of stunned, since it felt like this nomination came out of nowhere.
 
All I can really say is, "Wow!!"  I'm psyched, and I'm ready to get to work!
