Posted by Ron Wolford -

Good morning, Interns.

What a wonderful group of interns you are! Thirty five of you already have your hours up onto the database. You are active everywhere across the city and out into the suburbs! Very impressive!

Here are some things you need to know:

Your may enter your Volunteer Hours and Continuing Education Hours as you go along. You will need a total of 60 hours, which can be a combination of volunteer hours and Continuing Educationto graduate. You must have those submitted by April 1, 2008. Your graduation is set for Tuesday, May 27, 2008.

If you have forgotten how to get onto the NE Region Database to enter your hours, please contact me and I'll get you set up. Cell phone: 773-469-8037 or email

Check out today's Chicago Tribune, your classmate, Janna Riley is on the front page of the Your Place section!

I want to extend a special thanks to you for your class gift to the Master Gardener program. Thanks to all of you and especially Bill Rattan, there is now a wireless connection on the computer in the Plant Clinic. Bill also used your donations to purchase a digital camera for the program. That camera is going along to the Bungalow Expo at the Merchandise Mart this Saturday, October 27, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. for pictures for our web sites. We hope to send it out to most special events and gardens.

Thank you,
