Dear Reader: Thank you for requesting or downloading this course catalog. It is the first of its kind for county extension programs in Missouri. University of Missouri Extension specialists featured on these pages can do programming in Greene County and surrounding counties. The necessary contact information is provided so you can contact an instructor and make arrangements for hands-on, researchbased programming that will meet your individual, group or community needs. These pages also describe some of the topics and classes MU Extension specialists in this region can provide in your community, at your business, to members of your organization or as part of an event. I would encourage you to take advantage of our scheduled classes (those listed in this document and those online at http://extension.missouri.edu/greene). I also hope you will keep these documents as a resource to reference in the future. In Greene County, reduced funding has put the county office and our programs in jeopardy. In 2012, members of the Greene County Commission voted to reduce their portion of extension funding by 90%. Elected members of the Greene County Extension Council have kept the local office open and programs going with reserve funds. Members of the council have been told to expect that same 90% reduction from the County Commission in the 2013 budget which will leave the Greene County Extension Council with enough funds to operate for some of 2013. If you believe the educational resources offered by MU Extension in southwest Missouri — and especially in Greene County — are important, please let members of your County Commission know you appreciate their support of county Extension programs. Ongoing support from area County Commissions is needed to keep local extension offices opening and local programming ongoing. If you have further questions, please feel free to contact our office in Springfield. Sincerely,
David L. Burton Country Program Director, Greene County Extension Civic Communication Specialist, University of Missouri Extension
