I couldn't be more excited to welcome Debbie Eckerson to the UGJ fold. (That's Debbie, on the left, with former RCGC ED Susan Latoski on one of our Odyssey to Ithaca tours.) I've seriously been in need of office help for a while now, but the timing just hasn't been right. Or maybe, just a little, I was waiting for Deb. Anyway, when I heard she was resigning her position at the Rochester Civic Garden Center you can be sure I wasted no time trying - successfully! - to lure her over to the dark side. I mean, the UGJ. I've known Debbie for fifteen years and worked fairly closely with her for most of them, in one way or another, and I'm totally confident she's going to be a HUGE help! Deb will be taking care of subscriptions and is also our new calendar editor. Yay!
