  • Remember if you lose an animal or an ear tag, please call and let me know, so I can make notes of these.
  • Check in to see what Council requirements you still need to complete, if you are unsure.
  • Community Service opportunity: Sign up to bring treats for Old Timers or to serve coffee at Old Timers. Old Timers will be on Saturday June 26th, I will find out what time we need to be there to serve coffee.

    UPDATE: I need 2 more families to provide treats and 2 or 3 more families to serve coffee. Please let me know ASAP if you can help.
  • CSU Extension is conducting a community needs assessment to better understand the issues facing Colorado communities. This assessment will help guide Extension’s role as a community educator and partner.

    Part of this process is our community survey (available in English and Spanish). We need broad participation in the survey across all sectors of our community. Please take a few moments to complete this survey. Community Survey – Extension (colostate.edu)
