At our Women’s Luncheon on Saturday, we were
honored to have WV Delegate Kayla Kessinger speak
to us about how agriculture has touched her young life.
Although she didn’t grow up on a farm, she spoke of
a time when her family briefly raised pigs, which left
all of us laughing hysterically. Delegate Kessinger
also spoke of the cherished time and life lessons she
learned from her grandmother while helping her with
her vegetable garden. This was Kayla’s first WVFB
Annual Meeting but I believe it will not be her last as
she thoroughly enjoyed the weekend and has some new
adopted mothers and grandmothers who will follow
her life as a college student and as the second-youngest
member of the WV Legislature.
During the luncheon, results of the regional caucuses
were announced and the following individuals were
elected or re-elected to serve for their respective regions:
Region 1 – Pam Hessler – Chair and Dorrie Blue, Vice
Chair (new); Region 3 – Beckie Jack – Chair and Robyn
Yeager – Vice Chair; Region 5 – Tanya Pitsenbarger –
Chair and Lois Armstrong – Vice Chair; and Region 7
– Susie Cummings – Chair and Deborah Burdette - Vice
Chair (new). Dorrie and Deborah are a great fit and I
can’t wait to start working with them in 2016.
Now, let me close by wishing you a safe and
WONDERFUL Christmas season! May it be filled with
joy, laughter, and the great smells of the season!
Blessings from my home to yours!
