Dean's Column (Oct. 2014)

Dear Extension retirees,

One of the highlights of my summer is connecting with Extension retirees at the annual retiree luncheons. On June 12, 26 retirees met in Detroit Lakes, and on July 23, 64 retirees met in Roseville. Guest speaker Marla Spivak, Extension entomologist, joined us in Roseville to share information about her research and outreach on bees.

I continue to be amazed at the energy and generosity of our Extension retirees who are active in their communities and carry Extension messages in many capacities. So many of you continue to extend our shared mission throughout Minnesota as volunteers, donors and even some who return to work for Extension after retirement!

I wish you a healthy, bountiful fall, safe winter travels and I look forward to hearing about your adventures when we meet again!
