The Anderson Farm Museum Heritage Society has brought four new members onto its Board of Directors.

Betty Budgell, Christel Brandle, Ken Yasinowski and Mait Wilson, with help from alternate Claire Hobden, have been brought on to share their “wealth of leadership experience, talent and dedication plus new ideas and vitality to our volunteer board,” a media release from the board stated.

Budgell runs Betty's Bush and has worked with the AFMHS for the last three years. She has been a vendor at fair events and co-chaired several committees within the society. Budgell said she's looking forward to getting more involved in the community now that she is a part of the board.

In 2012 Brandle, Don Dodds and First Waters Scouting made a huge difference for the AFMHS by volunteering to be Community Partners in a variety of projects.

Yasinowski, a retired financial adviser, has been a longtime member of the community. He has a range of agricultural experience as well as experience building and teaching. He has raised all sorts of animals and operated a feed store for a decade.

Wilson and Hobden, both members of the Walden Lions Club, have been involved with the society since 2010. The Lions Club as a whole recently signed up to be a five-year community sponsor of the fair.

The AFMHS is looking forward to working with its new board members, the media release stated.
