Celebrate ISU Extension and Outreach Week in Plymouth County

Thursday, April 8, 2021

AMES – Iowa State University Extension and Outreach Week is April 12-17. Iowa’s 100 county extension offices will host activities throughout the week to thank Iowans for their support of extension efforts throughout the state.

“The challenges of the past year changed how ISU Extension and Outreach serves Iowans, but not why: We want a strong Iowa. We are here for you now and always,” said Janelle Johnson, County Director.

“This celebration is one way we say thank you to the many volunteers, community leaders, organizations, agencies and other partners who support our work in Plymouth County.” Johnson said.

ISU Extension and Outreach Plymouth County will be holding a healthy food collection with donations going to a local food bank. Dry or canned foods can be dropped off at ISU Extension and Outreach Plymouth County office at 251 12th St SE in Le Mars. Each person that donates will have an opportunity to be entered into a drawing for a prize. Donations will be accepted starting April 12 through April 30, 2021.

“ISU Extension and Outreach engages Iowans in solving today’s problems and planning for tomorrow. We will continue finding new ways to deliver research-based education and information to Iowans,” Johnson said.

ISU Extension and Outreach is part of the federal Cooperative Extension Service — a network of more than 100 land-grant institutions, including Iowa State University, and the U.S. Department of Agriculture serving communities and counties across the United States. Every county in Iowa has an elected extension council that decides how to support ISU Extension and Outreach educational programs at the county level.
