Open House

After a few starts and stutters, at long last the Hays County Texas A&M Agrilife Extension Office has relocated to Wimberley!  Although we enjoyed our time in San Marcos, with new beginnings come exciting changes.  A little over a year ago, we also welcomed our two new agents, Kate Blankenship/FCS and Jason Mangold/Ag, they work together coordinating our Hays County 4H as well.  If you haven’t met Kate or Jason yet, be sure to come by our new office at 200 Stillwater and introduce yourself.  Kate has spent the last year out in our community educating citizens about Diabetes Care, Childcare, Nutrition and a myriad of other topics.  She is available to come to your organization for these classes and as always, our education services are free of charge.  Jason has been traveling around Hays County for individual site visits, livestock shows and 4H events.  Both are available to answer any questions you may have about our other services.    Our youth program office is also open and ready to serve you. Kelly Giesler,  is our Youth Program Assistant here in Hays County.  While “Hatching in the Classroom” is a well-known program in many schools, we have many other fun learning opportunities we offer  and can even design custom programs for your classroom or organization’s needs.  One of our newest programs has been bringing awareness to important issues like mental health and suicide prevention.  Bari Conley is still manning the front office and she is an amazing resource for information about all things Hays County.  We’d love to invite all of you to come by our new offices and introduce yourself and see what we have to offer. 
The County will be holding an open house at our facility tomorrow, Friday the 13th, from 2:30pm to 4:30pm.  We hope to see you there!
