CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE – A reception to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the national Cooperative Extension System is planned at 7 p.m. on May 29 at the Rutgers Cooperative Extension office at 355 Court House-South Dennis Road in Cape May Court House.

Exhibits will highlight the system’s past and focus on the current application of Cooperative Extension’s mission and vision. Light refreshments will be served. The Extension Advisory Council of Cape May County will also honor the memory of John MacLeod, a former agricultural agent.

The Cooperative Extension System is an educational partnership between the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the nation’s land-grant universities that extends research-based knowledge through a state-by-state network of extension educators. In New Jersey, Rutgers is the state’s land-grant university, and Rutgers Cooperative Extension of Cape May County, with support from the Cape May County Board of Freeholders, is the Cape May County division of Cooperative Extension.
