Dallas County Extension and Outreach held an open house at the TownCraft Center in Perry on March 25, 2013 in honor of Extension and Outreach Week.

Extension Week events were held statewide March 24 - 30, 2013.

"It’s one way we can say ‘thank you’ to the many volunteers, community leaders, organizations, agencies and other partners who support ISU Extension and Outreach work in Iowa," said Cathann Kress, vice president for ISU Extension and Outreach. Local residents enjoyed refreshments while taking in displays that included 4-H, Clover Kids, worm composting, robotics, families programming and many other Extension and Outreach programs.
