Bon Voyage Rosemary

Today I had the pleasure of attending a celebration for Rosemary Lands a librarian in the Carolina Room at PLCMC. Rosemary is retiring after 36 years of service at PLCMC.

Pause for a moment and think about that. 36 years!

Rosemary has always been one of the most eager learners in my classes–never hesitating to dive right in whether it be taking a computer apart or blogging for Learning 2.0.

I wish Rosemary well in her retirement and hope that she will consider blogging again so we can all keep up with her adventures.

Rosemary you are an inspiration and you will be missed!

    Not only is Rosemary an eager learner, but a great teacher. I owe all I know about genealogy to the starting steps she taught me. And she spins some highly entertaining tales, most of which are true!

  2. Ditto! Wish I has been there to also send her off. Rosemary is a true gem and taught me a lot about lifelong learning.
