The first-ever WVU Extension Service Employee Appreciation Gathering for employees and immediate family members is scheduled for August 29 at Tygart Lake State Park. There will be a catered picnic and games for the whole family, as well as the Annual Extension Masters Golf Outing. Register by July 31 to attend.

The fourth annual WVU Extension Service “Summer Steps” walking program is off and running. Whether it’s your daily workout or a family walk after dinner, staying active this summer is a great investment in yourself.
The challenge isn’t just for walkers. You can count each 20 minutes of other physical activity as one mile, so if you play tennis or soccer, ride bicycles or enjoy other physical activity, you can participate.
You can find details about the program and register here. If you’ve participated in the past, you’ll notice that there’s a new twist this year that allows WVU employees to register by school or department.
You can begin tracking your mileage right away – everything reported between now and Aug. 31 will count towards the challenge.

You might be if you aren’t reading the weekly Communications ENEWS – created by Extension, for Extension. Comm ENEWS isn’t a replacement for the Extension FOCUS, but rather a more frequent publication that delivers specific things you need. In it, you’ll find general-release news stories, announcements, articles for use in county publications, directory updates, catastrophic leave requests and links to where WVU Extension has appeared in the news around the state. You’ll also find a helpful tip each week.
Because Comm ENEWS is weekly, it may contain short turn-around announcements that aren’t received in time to fit the FOCUS publication schedule. The things you enjoy about FOCUS will still be there, but if you skip Comm ENEWS, you may miss something important!
