Virginia Cooperative Extension Celebrates the 100th Anniversary of the Smith-Lever Act

Isle of Wight Volunteer of the Month Nominations
Cooperative Extension is turning 100 years old! In an effort to celebrate this monumental event, Extension would like to recognize one volunteer every month for the remainder of the year. These volunteers are those who have made our work possible in Isle of Wight County – because without volunteers we would not have programs.
