EXTENSION SERVICE TO HOST OPEN HOUSE JUNE 12
The Grant County Cooperative Extension Service is celebrating its first year in its new facility with an open house.
The public is invited to walk through the facility at 105 Baton Rouge Rd. in Williamstown, next to the Grant County Fairgrounds, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. June 12.
“We want people to see our new facility and show the community that we have something they should be proud of,” said Chris Ammerman, extension agent for agriculture and natural resources.
The agents and office staff moved into their new $1.4 million home on April 8, 2009.
The move and new 7,900 square foot building was set in motion about three years ago after the extension council opted to join the Grant County Fair in purchasing property on Baton Rouge Road for a new fairgrounds and extension building.
The extension service sold its home on South Main Street to the Grant County Fiscal Court for $300,000, which was to become the county’s new justice center.
“A lot more people have learned what extension has to offer to our community,” said Joyce Doyle, 4-H extension agent. “We’ve had a lot more people use our services. It’s really great. A lot of people didn’t know what extension was.”
To RSVP for the open house, call 824-3355.
