Texas has a newest Red Hat Instructor
« on: October 25, 2017, 06:17:13 PM »
Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls, Appleseeders of all ages,
It is my extreme pleasure to introduce to you our newest Texas Appleseed, Rifleman Instructor: Mr. Smith. O0
Andy is a dedicated member, serving with the El Paso Appleseed Cadre.
He and Mrs. Smith are, have been and will be significant assets to the Appleseed program.

Thank you Andy and Traci for your service,
Jerry  :sb:

I'll tell you, Mr. Smith is an AWESOME GUY!  O0

Many congratulations on the new hat!
...don't get attached to that color, though :)

Are they an unstoppable duo?   :))
Not sure about that.  But they're darn good instructors!   ^:)^

 O0 O0 O0 Huzzah!!!!  :F :F :F

I think Mrs. Smith must have cheated - she got red first at the Ladyseed event.  Poor Mr. Smith didn't have a chance.

We'll ignore the part where we were all on the forum, encouraging her to get 'er done at the Ladyseed event  **)

Seriously - awesome job, you two are a great team.
