NCPGS Offers Sponsorship to Annual Meeting
To honor Roger Galloway, a long time county agent who passed away in November 2016, the North Carolina Peach Growers Association is sponsoring an agent or grower to attend the NCPGS Annual meeting. The annual meeting is Tuesday, January 24, 2017, at the Moore County Extension office in Carthage. The meeting is 8:30 a.m.-3:00 p.m. Registration cost is $30. The NCPGS will sponsor the cost of registration, travel and overnight hotel expense, if needed by the agent or grower. Those interested should submit a paragraph describing their interest in attending the meeting to Paige Burns, firstname.lastname@example.org, no later than Friday, January 13, for consideration. The NCPGS Board will determine who will receive the sponsorship.
Roger Galloway, a county agent for over 2 decades, worked in Montgomery County for many of those years, serving the peach growers in the area with great dedication.
