The UW and extension office has been a part of my life since a child. I was in 4-H and took items to the fair and went to style shows. The 4-H agents were always involved. Then in high school, I was an FHA member and again the UW-Extension was there for guidance. As an adult, I often would order pamphlets or for information from the extension office. Now at age 75, I have been in HCE the last few years and have been entering items at both the Marquette County and Waushana County fairs. The element agents are always helping at these fairs. So, hats off to UW-Extension!
