2018 CCE Adirondack Summer Excursion

July 21, 2018
9:30 am - 6:30 pm
Utica, NY

The New York State Association of Agricultural County Agents (NYSACAA) is dedicated to providing members of Cornell Cooperative Extension community with continuing education, a voice on campus and ways to keep connected with each other. Regional, statewide and national meetings bring members together for professional improvement and social interaction. 

The board of directors has once again endorsed a summer social event to bring extension folks from across the state together this summer on the Adirondack Scenic Railroad
(http://www.adirondackrr.com/adkrr/). You do not have to be a NYSACAA member to join us! This excursion is open to all county, regional and campus employees and their families. It is unfortunate that there are county fairs in progress on that day, however this was the best choice for railroad operation purposes.
