From all of us at CSU Extension – Jefferson County, thank you for the late nights you pull helping out youth, the long days you spend working events, the thought-out words you have for those in need of information, the weekends that are spent helping others and the everlasting dedication that you share with us. Part of our mission is “to provide research-based information and innovative services…” and we would never reach as much of the community as we do without your help.
