Meeting Vince Dooley!

As president of the Tifton Twentieth Century Library Club, I get many opportunities to meet famous folks…..well, not MANY opportunities….OK, so I get a few opportunities to meet famous people.  Last Saturday night while attending the GA Federation of Woman’s Clubs Institute in Athens, GA, I got to meet former UGA football coach, Vince Dooley.  Of course, I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to mention that I was a student at Penn State in 1982….the year Penn State beat UGA for the National College Football Championship….and Coach Dooley was gracious to say he meets a few of “those folks” every now and then, but doesn’t mind because JoePA is such a great guy.  Coach Dooley is now a gardener, among many other attributes, and I purchased his gardening book with a forward by one of my former Horticulture professors, Dr. Michael Dirr.  Coach Dooley is a wonderful speaker, and his wife, Barbara, is also delightful.  It was a wonderful evening!
