Posted: September 30, 2014

This summer flew by and all three counties in the district saw record numbers at summer youth programs and 4-H fairs.

As the school year gears up, our 4-H clubs are enrolling new members, we have several new 4-H clubs starting up and we are excited to see many new faces.

I am pleased to report that we have a new horticulture educator, Kathleen Salisbury, beginning on Oct. 1 in Bucks County. We are grateful for the generous funding by the Bucks County Commissioners that has allowed us to fill this valuable position following a retirement this summer.

We also welcomed two new nutrition education advisers with the Nutrition Links* program in Montgomery County. Komal Shah and Chelsea Rife are both paid with federal funds.

I hope you will check our county websites regularly so you don't miss any of the exciting educational programs we have coming up this autumn.

* Nutrition Links is part of the federally funded Expanded Food Nutrition Education Program (EFNEP).
