This community celebration will start at 5:30 p.m. and go through 9 p.m. It will include fun activities for the whole family and will honor and recognize those in the community with either a 100 year cumulative involvement in the 4_H program or in agriculture in Humboldt County. Come mingle with friends, neighbors, and UC partners; explore some of Humboldt and California’s agricultural history; and dine on a fine meal featuring local veggies, fruits and meat. In California, Humboldt County has the distinction of being the first to establish a Cooperative Extension Department, with the appointment of the state’s first farm advisor in 1913 and the first to organize 4_H clubs.
Please come to connect or reconnect with Cooperative Extension and 4-H. Individual tickets and complete tables are available for purchase on a sliding scale from $25_$40 per person (please pay what you can). Table purchase ends Aug. 28 and individual ticket purchase ends Sept. 6. Space is limited so please reserve your tickets soon at the following link http://ucanr.edu/galacentennialdinner.
UC Cooperative Extension is also looking for families who have 100 years in Humboldt agriculture or cumulatively in 4-H.
Humboldt’s Cooperative Extension program started in July of 1913. Over the last 100 years, UC Cooperative Extension-Humboldt has offered practical solutions to life’s problems by connecting people to the University of California’s informational resources and by providing trusted research-based solutions. UCCE is dedicated to improving the quality of life of Californians by developing and delivering research-based information in agriculture and natural resources, and by supporting healthy families and communities.
