Default Welcome additional moderators - congrats Chong and Randy!

I'm honestly delighted to announce we have two new moderators!
Chong and Randy are now on board along with Gabe and Ron to be our new moderation team.
They're both esteemed members who care very much for our community, both are a wonderful addition and I'm honored they feel so strong for the well-being of our organization. Randy has a lot of other wonderful members in his vicinity in and near Tennessee, it's great to have representation for this wonderful area. Randy is one of our esteemed members, having been helpful with the other members and quite active nearly since our inception. In addition, his expert knowledge should not go without notice. Chong is also one of the several expert members of Bananas.org that keep in stealth mode and choose to not wear the plaque Chong's knowledge of plants (growing bananas since 1974) and willingness to share, as well as his eagerness to serve our community makes him a wonderful candidate for the position.
Both members round out our moderation team to a total of 4 and will also be helping behind the scenes to form more localized groups and meetups. We have a lot to be excited about! So, without further adieu, let us give a warm welcome to Chong and Randy!

Deb,
Wow!!! That's sounds like a great idea. Maybe we can work something up later this summer. Would love to meet some of the members that live within a days drive of this area. Would be fun, wouldn't it!!!

It's a privilege to be one. Let's work to grow our numbers here in the NW. Hope to get my house in order this summer, then we can have meetings here, or in places nearby.

Look forward to meeting with you sometime soon.
