The Tuesday Letter is a weekly email to approximately 2,500 faculty and staff of K-State Research and Extension and the College of Agriculture, providing recipients with timely announcements and updates.
From the Associate Director for Extension
I have noticed that one of the worse four letter words in the English language is used way too frequently by Extension professionals and volunteers: J-U-S-T. That’s right, “just.” It is one of the most self-limiting and belittling words ever.
Local, Regional and Statewide Extension Events
Join us for a fun filled day of learning opportunities for all ages - Super 4-H Saturday, March 10, in Hays has something for everyone! Judging contests, hands on workshops and a 4-H Volunteer Gathering. Judging contests are open to 4-H and FFA members.
K-State College of Agriculture is looking for Alumni who were also active in 4-H to feature on our website. Feel free to complete the form yourself or forward it to someone you know!
On March 2, our First Friday e-Call at 9:30 a.m. is on Economic Gardening, an innovative, entrepreneur-centered, growth strategy focused on providing tools to cultivate second-stage businesses.
Banks are now required to have an official letter or form on file from the IRS with the 4-H club’s EIN. 4-H Clubs may reach out to the Extension office upon being contacted by a bank for the appropriate documentation if they don't have it on file.
