Season’s Greetings!

As they say, “Tis the Season” and nothing can put one in the mood more quickly than enjoying the sights and sounds of the holidays. Recently, while in Melbourne, Victoria (Australia) working with colleagues interested in developing their own eXtension system, I enjoyed streets adorned with beautiful Christmas banners and signs. During the weekend it was the local symphony playing seasonal tunes including excerpts from The Nutcracker (Tchaikovsky). We were surrounded by reminders of the beauty and special meanings that go with this special time of year.

Each of us is thankful for the blessings we enjoy including our work as Extension professionals. Together we enrich the lives of those we serve by helping to provide the best information and educational opportunities possible. It’s amazing what we can accomplish when we truly work together. So, on behalf of the eXtension staff … Happy Holidays!
