Every three years, a group of Michigan State University Extension retirees meets for a retreat at the Kettunen Center, and this year was my third opportunity to join the group. On May 19, Julie Chapin, Children and Youth Institute director; Cheryl Howell, executive director of the Michigan 4-H Foundation; and I shared dinner with the group and then provided updates to them about what’s going on in MSUE, 4-H and the 4-H Foundation. It’s always great to reconnect with this lively group. Their years of experience generate some great insights into what has worked and what hasn’t worked in delivering on the mission of MSUE. I really appreciate the opportunity to visit with them over dinner and to field their questions and suggestions in an evening discussion. Did I mention that this is a lively group? Jack Worthington, MSUE retiree, scrambled up a ladder to capture a group photo and has shared it for your viewing. Thanks to the entire group for sharing an evening with me!
