Extension Review by Virginia Delvaux The South Dakota State Fair is behind us, and it is a good feeling! The Clay County 4-H members did a great job this year. You can read all about the results in another news article submitted to the local newspapers in this area.
However, I would like to say thank you to all who helped with the Clay County Fair and to volunteers that manned the tasks assigned to Clay County at the South Dakota State Fair. With out the help and support from hundreds of local volunteers this program could not exist.
The Clay County Extension Office is in the process of revising the Child Care Directory that is prepared for families in search of child care services. Any adult that currently provides home or center child care services can have their name listed in the directory. Listings will be accepted until Aug. 23. The directory does not endorse any of the persons listed but serves as a resource for families in need of child care. Updated directories will be available after Sept. 1 for parents in need of child care services.
The West Nile Virus has been in the news for the last couple of weeks, and I am sure some of you have questions. Our office has received a fact sheet outlining what one should consider when purchasing mosquito repellents. If you would like a copy please contact our office at 677-7111.
The SDSU Cooperative Extension Service will also sponsor a West Nile Virus Update via Interactive video at the Extension Learning Centers on Friday, Aug. 16 starting at
10 a.m. The closest site for
our area is at the Yankton County Extension Office Meeting Room, 901 Whiting Drive, Yankton.
The training is for persons who will be conducting mosquito control in public areas. Participants are encouraged to pre-register by calling 605-688-4752 to insure space availability. Program topics can be obtained from your local Extension office.
