Message from Evon Antonio, Executive Director

Dear volunteers, community members, partners, and supporters,

Cornell Cooperative Extension of Columbia & Greene Counties has spent the past few weeks learning about the coronavirus (COVID-19) and its devastating impact. Our thoughts are with those who have been directly affected and we aim to support those who are at the forefront of the battle to contain this virus.

CCE prioritizes the health, safety, and well-being of the communities we serve. Given the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19, and due to an abundance of caution, all on-site and off-site programs, workshops & 4-H activities (including 4-H Club meetings) are canceled effective immediately until further notice.

In addition, our offices will be closed to the public, including our volunteers, beginning at noon on Wednesday, March 18, again, until further notice.

Please be assured we are committed to supporting our communities through this very difficult time and encourage you to visit our website regularly for up-to-date information including links to relevant websites.

If you have questions that require immediate attention, please feel free to contact the following:

We thought we would share this message that is circulating as it really struck a chord with us…please stay safe!

Conversations will not be canceled

Relationships will not be canceled

Love will not be canceled

Songs will not be canceled

Reading will not be canceled

Self-care will not be canceled
