Note: Please click photos for captions.

On November 1, more than 50 Extension staff and retirees shared stories,  enjoyed hearing about retirement activities, and learned about current Extension programming. Fred Haegele,  retired State 4-H Specialist, was honored for having started his Extension employment in 1942, as well as Glen Sons, retired Regional Director, who began in 1944.  It was a great day to celebrate 100 Years of Extension!
