2013 Winter Gathering and Paul Bader’s Retirement Party

On January 19 over a hundred members attended our third Winter Gathering to honor Paul Bader and his contributions to the success of our cooperative.  There were roasts and boasts, tears and laughs as members and forestry professionals told of how Paul had been instrumental in changing the course of their woodlot management.  Of course Paul wouldn’t have been able to do it without the unswerving support of his wife Marcia. Paul had a vision for what our cooperative could be, and he kept it on course to become what we share today. Hooray for Paul and Marcia!
