Clermont County EC3 Play Learn Grow Group

Our SNAP-Ed team (L to R: Allison Ostrander, Sara Niekamp , and Becky Fiscus)  spent their time this morning hanging out at the EC3 (Early Childhood Coordinating Committee)  Play Learn Grow event. The event took place at Clermont Northeastern Headstart, located in Owensville. The team passed out educational materials on nutrition and youth activities. They also had the opportunity to speak to parents and children about nutrition and educational learning.

Advancing Mobile Meat in Appalachia

Whether you shop for local meat, raise livestock, operate a slaughterhouse, or create value-added products, the meat processing bottleneck affects you!

The project Planning To Advance Mobile Meat Slaughter and Processing in Ohio and Central Appalachia, conducted by The Appalachian Center for Economic Networks, Inc. (ACEnet) and project consultants, aims to draft and support a plan for a possible solution.

Will you commit ten minutes of your time to share your values and needs in a short survey?

We want to hear from as many farmers, processors, and consumers in the Ohio and Central Appalachian region as we can and appreciate any feedback.

Start the survey: https://corexmsffsgb599k6k6d.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_2iwNa7YVbJjpRtA

Farewell, Friends!

While I am excited about opportunities that await my future, it is with sadness that I say good-bye.  My final day with OSU Extension will be Friday, May 28.  Until then, I am working limited hours wrapping up programming and projects that I have scheduled.  I have resumed working for the Anderson Area Chamber of Commerce as the Director of Member Services, a position I held for 12 years before coming to Extension.

Thank you for the warm welcome during my time in Clermont County.  I will cherish the many friendships I’ve made along the way.   I’ve enjoyed working with, and learning from all of you; it has been a pleasure!  Thank you for letting me be part of the journey.

Thank you for all the experiences and wonderful memories!
