THE EXTENSION OFFICE USED TO BE LOCATED IN THE LAUDERDALE COUNTY COURTHOUSE ANNEX, BUT NOW THEY HAVE A NEW FACILITY TO CALL HOME.
PATTY SWEARINGEN: “Today we’re celebrating the opening of our Lauderdale county extension office, which is a part of Mississippi state university. We’re just very excited that the county board has provided us this building and space, because it’s been a much-needed thing that we’ve needed for years, because we didn’t have a place to really conduct meetings at. We had to always go out and count on someone else to help provide us a place to meet, but now we have our own meeting room here. Its easy access, you don’t have to worry about the parking downtown, you’re here where you’ve got a spot. You don’t have to worry about coming up the elevator either, if you know anything about the courthouse annex. So, we’re just really excited that we’ve got such a nice building here to offer the public.”
THE RIBBON CUTTING WAS FOLLOWED BY AN OPEN HOUSE, TO SHOWCASE THE NEW FACILITY.
