Dear Extension Retirees,
The date for the annual reception for Extension retirees has been changed to October 28, from 2-4 p.m. at the University's new Urban Research and Outreach Center in Minneapolis.
I hope the date change is not an inconvenience for you, as I am looking forward to seeing you all once again this fall! Last year, we gathered at the State Fair in celebration of Extension's Centennial. This year, we will hold the reception in a much newer University and Extension facility. The University's Urban Research and Outreach/Engagement Center (UROC) is located at 2001 Plymouth Avenue North, Minneapolis (view map).
The multipurpose facility provides opportunities for University services and community organizations to conduct programs and pursue initiatives and projects to discover solutions to complex issues facing urban communities. Extension programs that have a presence at the UROC include: Urban 4-H Youth Development, Simply Good Eating, Hennepin County Master Gardeners and Operation Frontline.
So please mark your calendars for October 28 and plan on joining us to see old friends and hear about Extension's latest initiatives. We will meet at 2 p.m. for refreshments and a tour of the facility. Watch for an invitation with directions and a request for your RSVP coming soon.
Bev Durgan, Dean
