James, who is retiring from the  post after two terms as Master Gardeners president, was honored at a gentle “roast” presided over by businessman Michael Hale, who said it was annoying going through the Master Gardeners training with James several years ago because, “Pat always knew the answers.”

Others speaking about their experience with Pat James and his work with the Master Gardeners included Sherra Owen, Stanley Wise, Sean Johnson, and Brenda Robertson.

Installed to succeed James as Master Gardeners president was Joyce Morrison.

Retiring vice-president Brenda Robertson will be replaced by Pat Campbell.

Sandy Shaddinger, who is leaving the post of treasurer after service of five years, was given a gift in appreciation of her service. Judy Henry will be the new treasurer.
