[b]Lyman Co. Extension Open House - SDSU's 125th Anniversary [/b]

Posted by Nicole
South Dakota State University will celebrate its 125th Anniversary on Tuesday, February 21, 2006, and we invite you to the Lyman County Extension Office for an Open House from 1:00 - 3:00 PM. We welcome you to stop by for a dish of SDSU ice cream, a cookie or two and a cup of coffee to help us celebrate. The ice cream will be first come-first served, so you might want to come early!

Several items will be on display dealing with the history of agriculture and Extension in Lyman County. As I hope most people know, we have a wide variety of information and handouts, most of which are free. The open house is a great opportunity to stop in and pick up some material you can use.

We have dug through the archives a little, and brought out a large number of old photos, Extension Homemakers Club histories and publications that will be on display. We welcome you to stop by and help us identify the people in the photos or maybe even see yourself. If you have old photos or other items of historical significance related to SDSU, Extension, 4-H, etc., that you would be willing to loan to us for display, please contact the Extension office or bring them in. We promise to take special care of them and return them to you in good condition.

Put February 21 on your calendar and plan to stop by the Lyman County Extension Office to help us celebrate.
