Service projects say ‘Happy 150th birthday, Iowa State!’

cy and friends

To commemorate the 150th birthday of Iowa State University, each ISU Extension county office will host a service project in 2007.

These projects will involve county, field and state staff; 4-H members; current ISU students; ISU alumni living in the county; Extension retirees and other friends of ISU. All county service projects will be identified by Feb. 1, 2007. Service projects will be action-oriented and provide something of value to the community. Each project will be commemorated with a bronze plaque.

Iowa State will officially kick off the sesquicentennial during VEISHEA, on April 21, 2007. ISU Extension will be part of the celebration with a tent on central campus filled with activities and displays.
