Extension Newsletter

Starting with the January 2016 issue, the Person County Cooperative Extension Newsletter will be published once per quarter. The rest of the year, issues will be published in April, July, and October. The reason for doing this is pretty simple – this will save a lot of money through the year – budgets are tight and getting tighter! Another cost-saving move that we would like to take is to gather email addresses and use those to electronically deliver the newsletter to folks. When folks share their email addresses with us, we would also like to know about other communications that they would like to have via email. Examples might include pest alerts for both commodity crops and home gardens, nutrition education classes, information about Very Important Parents or Youth Enrichment Services, or information and updates from the 4-H program. Email and social media can get notices out about meeting dates and event information very quickly and is there to check on to verify dates, times, and locations. Please compose an email to debbie_harrelson@ncsu.edu or call the Person County Cooperative Extension Center at (336) 599-1195 to begin receiving the newsletter and other communications via email.

Lunch N' Learn

We are still working on a slate of topics for our Lunch N' Learn programs this year but they will be the second Thursday of each month, with the exception of February. February is American Heart Month and everyone needs to ask themselves “Do you worry too much? And is it hurting your heart?” Our monthly lunch n’ learn session will be Don't Worry and will be held on Thursday, February 25 from noon – 1:00pm. The cost is $5.00. We will be discussing some stress management tips, the effects of stress on your heart, and signs to watch out for. Here is a flier with the tentative dates for the 2016 Lunch N' Learns. For more information or to get on the contact list for our events, contact Jennifer Grable, FCS Agent, at 336-599-1195 or Jennifer_grable@ncsu.edu
