100 Year Milestone for Cedar County ISU Extension and Outreach

In 1903 a group of Sioux County farmers cooperated with Iowa State University to establish the "extension idea" taking the land-grant college to the people.  In 2003, Iowa State University celebrated 100 years of ISU Extension and Outreach helping Iowans become their best.
With the start of 2012, and over the next several years, county extension offices throughout the state have been celebrating their 100 year milestones of organized extension work and the hiring of their first county agents.  Iowa State University Extension and Outreach will continue to carry Iowa State's landgrant mission beyond campus, to be the university that best serves the citizens of Iowa over the next 100 years and beyond.  We serve as a 99 cou8nty campus, connecting the needs of Iowans with Iowa State University research and resources.  We provide education and partnerships designed to solve today's problems and prepare for the future.
2017 is the year for Cedar County ISU Extension and Outreach's 100th Anniversary.  We are starting our year of celebration on April 17th during Extension Week at the Cedar County Extension Office in Tipton with ISU cupcakes available during the day.  We are also reaching out to the citizens of Cedar County with the support of the area banks:  Liberty Trust and Savings Bank in Bennett and Durant, Community State Bank in Clarence, Stanwood, and West Branch, American Trust and Savings in Lowden and Bridge Community in Mechanicsville who will also have cupcakes available during the day.
Be sure to join us on April 17th and to also watch throughout the coming months as we publicize and post information about our upcoming events and information about our journey.  We have been able to reach this 100 year milestone with your support and are able to celebrate much success in our programming and positive impace on our county.
