Dean's Column (Centennial)

| Leave a comment

Dear Colleagues,

This year marks Extension's Centennial, and we are proud of our 100-year history.    Throughout the year, many of you have taken advantage of the Centennial stories, photos, quiz and other communications pieces available on the Centennial website.

Last week we announced an opportunity for Minnesotans of all ages to join us in celebrating our shared history by submitting photos and memorabilia to a special Extension Centennial 4-H project. I invite all Extension employees and program teams to consider submitting photos or memorabilia that reflect our shared history and contributions to Minnesota over the past 100 years. Exhibits will be displayed at the State Fair in the 4-H building, so be sure to stop by and see them during the fair.

I will also be hosting a Centennial reception for Extension's retirees, donors and stakeholders during the State Fair.  If you happen to be at the fair on September 3, from 1-3 p.m., feel free to stop by the 4-H building to thank the many people who have been a part of Extension's history.

Bev Durgan
