George Godel is remembered with respect and fondness by the many farm families he counselled during his 25 years as a district agriculturist in Athabasca. A dedicated and competent agrologist, he did much to improve farms and farm homes through the Farm and Home program, the motto for which was "better farming for better living". Though Mr. Godel served unstintingly in his professional capacity, he still found time to be involved with his community. When he retired after working for almost three decades with Alberta Agriculture, Mr. Godel spent three years in Zambia, working first with CESO (Canadian Executive Services Overseas) and later for CIDA (Canadian International Development Agency). In 1977 he was awarded the Queen's Jubilee Medal.
