In the last week I’ve greatly enjoyed three teas with 34 women and six university folks across the state. The tea participants like the six program themes/teams we have in operation. They suggest we work more closely with the medical community in our educational efforts, reminded us of the need for strong relationships with school administrators and staff to work more closely than ever with young families. It was also clear that for these women, the blending of Extension Families and 4-H work is the way they live their daily lives. They are very excited about our future and very pleased that we are working hard to make lives better for families. I’ll be evaluating the results of these teas and will most likely conduct another set in March and April. I’d love to hear what “tea gossip” you hear on the Extension grapevine.
