March 16th, 2020

Hello! Like many, Cornell Cooperative Extension Wyoming County is very concerned about the health of our friends, families, and neighbors. We are taking every precaution to ensure the safety of our community. Given the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 and due to an abundance of caution, the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Wyoming County is announcing the suspension of all programming, events, and volunteer activities until April 15th, 2020. This includes ALL 4-H club meetings and the annual 4-H Cookie Sale. We will do our best to reschedule as many of these programs as possible.

Please continue to check our website and Facebook page for updates. This is an evolving situation, and we will continue to provide daily guidance in the coming days and weeks as we receive new information. We can be reached at (585) 786-2251 or wyoming@cornell.edu should you have any questions or concerns.

CCE would also like to remind 4-H leaders that any activities, meetings, and/or events held after March 16th are not sanctioned by CCE. The Cornell Cooperative Extension of Wyoming County is not liable for any unsanctioned events held during the aforementioned postponement period. We cannot thank you enough for your patience and cooperation, and we can’t wait to return to our regularly scheduled programming later this year!

In addition, the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Wyoming County office will be open by appointment only through the end of March. We know that many community members are already practicing “social distancing” in the woods and at their sugar shacks, in the fields and on their farms, and we commend everyone for their continued commitment to feeding our communities. We encourage you to contact us via phone or email should you have any questions or concerns; our staff would be happy to help! We hope to be able to return to our regularly scheduled business hours soon, and look forward to a summer filled with great programming!

Sincerely,

Abby Griffith
