Dona coordinates community gardening and invasive species programs, including the Master Gardener Volunteer Program and the Tree Stewards Program.
In 2019, CCE Ulster celebrated Dona's 15 years of service. We share a note of appreciation from one of her volunteers:
December 5, 2019
Congratulations to you on 15 years of service with UC-CCE. The MGs are indeed fortunate to have you at the helm. Thank you!! I think you've done a really great job and I have very much enjoyed serving under you and with you for some of those fifteen years! I think we have a great core (and also corps!) group--and you have a lot to do with that. You very much bring out the best in people-- Every time I see the other co-ordinators, I thank my lucky stars that you are our coordinator. I doubt I would have hung on as many years as I have if you hadn't been in charge. Because it was you running the show, I really enjoyed the work and was willing to put in the time and effort that I did. You definitely made it fun and worthwhile. I hope those in charge appreciate all the effort and energy you put into it. You should be very proud! I know I am very grateful, for sure.
With many, many thanks,
