For families in Steuben County’s 4-H program this is an important meeting. The community members who comprise the CCE Steuben Board of Directors needs to hear from you during the public comment session of the meeting.

This is Allison Lavine-Ziegenhagen - as a member of the local community and as the Agriculture and Natural Resources Program Advisory Committee Chair I feel it is important for the 4-H families to have their concerns heard at this meeting.

All our meetings are open to the public.

It is Fall!  Such beautiful color all around!
