Celebrate Extension!

If you haven’t yet registered for the celebration marking two important events in Cooperative Extension in Hawai‘i, now’s the time to do it—the deadline is October 26! This year is the ninetieth anniversary of the decision that made UH eligible for Smith-Lever funds, the key funding mechanism for Extension programs of land-grant universities across the country. And 100 years ago the first precursor to Hawai‘i 4-H, a children’s Swine Club, was established on Maui. There will be a celebration luncheon in honor of these two historic milestones, and the CTAHR ‘ohana is invited to participate in commemorating Hawai’i’s past while looking toward the future! It’s all happening on Wednesday, November 7, at the Ala Moana Hotel’s Hibiscus Ballroom. Check-in is at 11:00 a.m.; the luncheon program runs from 11:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. For more information and to register, please go to the event website or complete and return the attached registration form with your payment. Questions? Just contact Stephanie Cadelinia by phone at 956-8139 or email her at extension@ctahr.hawaii.edu. Please forward this invitation to CTAHR retirees, stakeholders, and friends who may be interested in attending!
