This is a toast to Anita Vanderwert. One of our very good friends who is leaving Learfield Communications and Brownfield Ag News for a new career opportunity. I’m sure we’ll still see Anita somewhere out there on the agriblogging highway though. This week Learfield had a farewell party which we couldn’t attend. But thanks to Joyce Steinman, we got pictures!
Here are some words from the invitation to Anita’s farewell party. It’s not too late to send a message in if you know Anita. See how below.
Anita Vanderwert has been doing this network thing for a long time, and after 18 years she has decided it’s time to make a change. Anita’s position at Brownfield has provided her with the opportunity to cross paths with many people. And you know, once you meet Anita, it’s very easy to soon become her friend.
While we will miss her greatly, we are excited for Anita and her new adventure and nothing is more fitting than to send her off with a fond and fun farewell toast.
If you are unable to attend, please send a note or email with a memory or two that we can share with Anita as we toast her new endeavor.
