Member Spotlight – K-State Research & Extension
The McPherson County K-State Research & Extension office held a Chamber Connection December 7th at their office, 600 W. Woodside, and shared with attendees some of the many programs they offer.
Extension programs present useful information related to agriculture, home economics, youth development, family life, business and economics, healthy living, and much more. Some of the programs discussed at the Chamber Connection are what you might expect (4-H youth development, agriculture information, etc.), and others are a bit surprising. Did you know they have over 200 special occasion cake pan molds you can rent? Candy molds, too.
Their philosophy is to help people help themselves by taking university knowledge to where people live, work, play, develop, and lead. They work at being responsive to the needs of the people by focusing their resources on providing quality information, education and problem-solving programs for real concerns.
There are extension offices in each of Kansas’ 105 counties. Be sure to check out photos from the December 7th Chamber Connection.
