The Colorado Foundation for Agriculture is saying goodbye to its founding Executive.

Bette Blinde is stepping down from the position that she created in 1991 after hearing that the then young program was in trouble.

Blinde grew up in Aravada and Longmont Colorado where her family raised cattle. She moved to Nebraska for a short while where she and her former husband worked as ranchers.

Now residing near Red Feather Lakes, Blinde is also a member of the volunteer fire department and is working to help build that program too.

One of her final projects at the Colorado Foundation for Agriculture will be the annual Colorado Literacy Project . That program invites farmers and ranchers to go to local schools and read to students. This year the selected title is book of about a young girl who lives on a dairy farm in Greely.
