Meet the Toledo District Co-Directors – Cornelia Wagener & Carolyn Naples-Gintert
I grew up in the hills of Southeast Ohio. I spent my youth roaming the hills picking wild berries and watching my grandmother make wonderful dishes. After I married I moved to Northwest Ohio to a farm. There I learned to keep a big garden and can. I learned which flower helped which vegetable.
After my children grew, I attended Hillsdale College and received my accounting degree. I went on to get my CPA licenses and worked for the government for 25 years. When I retired I finally had time to learn more about gardening. I attended Master Gardener Classes and joined the River Road Garden Club. I have served as Secretary and am now the President.
I am looking forward to serving as District Director and learning more about the Garden Club of Ohio and their mission. I attended my first convention this year and was able to bring much information back to my club. We hope to be more involved in the coming years.
