From the Director's Desk
It is always amazing when you can raise great money for noxious weeds. The MVRG Weed Committee held their annual fundraiser in the Madison this August and raised what Melissa Griffiths thought might be a record net. At the Weed Whacker’s Ball this past Saturday in Wise River, they raised over $20,000 again. Noxious weeds are not glamorous and often it is a hard cause to gain people’s attention. However, once people find out what noxious weeds are, many of them become quite passionate about them. Both of these events have been going on for a long time. I once was in charge of producing the MVRG Weed Committee’s function and then have been involved in the Weed Whacker Ball for many years and I can tell you that literally hundreds of thousands of dollars have been raised collectively by these groups. It is nice to see that the support for the fundraisers does not wane.
