Retiree Annual Party, September 9, 2016

Retiree Annual Party, September 9, 2016

    It's time to think about the annual retiree party.  Hope to see you there!  The steak dinner is scheduled for 4:00 pm with the meeting starting at 3:30 p.m.  There will be a light lunch available at noon.

   The White Deer hunting camp located in northwestern Huntingdon County will be open at
10:00 a.m. for early arrivals. There will be a camp tour of various food plots for deer and discussion on pond management.  We will be the offering an opportunity to participate in some shooting sports and equestrian activities (horse shoes).  The evening will cap off with a bon fire as the sun goes down if there is enough indicating they plan to stay. Mark Theiss will be offering a discussion for professional development on the "Capital Campaign".   All are encouraged to participate in the discussion and learning opportunity.
    All active Agriculture and 4-H agents and specialists are invited and encouraged to attend.  (Retirees, please make a special effort to invite active current Agriculture extension workers to attend).  The party will be held at White Deer hunting camp two miles from Mooresville.  The approaches to the camp are:  Route 26 from State College to the Huntingdon side of  Pine Grove Mills mountain, then take Charter Oak Road to Mooresville and turn right on Play House Road, turn left on Eberly Road and then right on White Deer Road.  Approaching from Route 22, take Route 305 from Alexandria to Mooresville and turn left.  Any questions email or call 814-574-0089.
   We will have a professional development opportunity in the evening for active educators that qualifies for update training.  There will be a "brief" meeting before dinner, come prepared to discuss pertinent issues for the good of the cause.  Bring up names of people who should be attending but are not.  It may be a shortcoming of our mailing list.  It always needs updated regarding additions and deletions.
