Join us for our Take Five Friday series every week starting Friday, March 27th at 10:30 a.m. for Take Five Friday! We know there are plenty of AWESOME resources out there for your youth to learn their reading, writing, and arithmetic so we want to offer a time for your youth to exercise their social-emotional skills. During our new live stream series, Take Five Friday, youth will engage with their fellow 4-Hers LIVE for 30 minutes every Friday. We want this to be a time for youth to recharge in a fun, educational, safe, and socially distant way!

Hello Cass Extension and 4-H Community,
I hope this email finds you happy, healthy, and hopeful! As you know, in our office we are dedicated to serving you and this community. We strive to do this to the best of our ability.

As you know, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has declared the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak a pandemic. Nebraska Extension has canceled all in-person training, including chemigation and pesticide applicator training, starting March 16, 2020.

At the start of every decade, the U.S. Census Bureau conducts a count of the people living within the borders of the United States. The results are used to determine everything from the number of elected representatives to a community's grant application for broadband access. To help with this endeavor, Nebraska Extension is partnering with the Census Bureau to promote census data collection. Visit https://extension.unl.edu/2020-census/ to learn how we can do our part.
