Goodman is set to take post with Blossoms of Hope

January 12, 2007|By LARRY CARSON

Victoria Goodman, Howard County's director of communications for the past eight years under former executive James N. Robey, is moving to a new post after her retirement at the end of the month.

Goodman will be executive director of the Blossoms of Hope cherry tree-planting program run by Howard County Tourism Inc., starting Feb. 12.

The campaign has planted more than 1,000 trees in the county as an attraction for spring tourists. The trees are designed to bloom simultaneously about two weeks later than the display in Washington, Goodman said.

A donation from the sponsorship of each tree goes to the Claudia Mayer Cancer Resource and Image Center at Howard County General Hospital.
