As 2012 draws to a close, I want to thank you for another successful year of connecting the University with every county of Minnesota. Through our education and research, we make Minnesota a better place to live today and for future generations.
I am pleased to announce that all counties continue to invest in Extension. As you have seen from many of President Kaler's messages, the University values the relationships and impact Extension has throughout the state.
I wish you a safe and healthy holiday season. I hope you find time to celebrate your professional and personal accomplishments of 2012, returning in 2013 ready for another year of making a difference in Minnesota.
