Next week marks the start of another Minnesota State Fair and once again the University and Extension will be very visible at Minnesota's Great Get-Together. If you happen to be in the Twin Cities during the fair, I hope you have an opportunity to stop by the University's building, the 4-H building and the Master Gardener exhibits in the Horticulture building. All provide fun and engaging examples of Extension in action.
During the fair, we are also honoring our Centennial with an Extension history exhibit as well as photos and memorabilia submitted by Minnesotans in the special Extension Centennial 4-H project. All will be on display in the 4-H building.
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, feel free to stop in the 4-H building to add your thanks to the many people who have been a part of Extension's history.
