Clemson University Cooperative Extension 

Service York County

GYCC President, Dr. Jack Bagwell presents the August Award to Clemson University Cooperative Services Extension York County. Left to Right: Angela Forbes, Food Safety & Nutrition Agent; Ben Boyles, Community Development Agent; Dr. Jack Bagwell, GYCC President;Faith Isreal, 4-H Youth & Development Agent; Harriet Palecek, Administrative Assistant

Are you wondering what weed is in your garden? Do you want to learn how to preserve your fruits and vegetables? Are you interested in exploring our agriculture and art? Does your child want to raise a blue-ribbon animal or learn leadership skills? If you answered yes to any of those questions then the Extension Service has something for you!

    The Clemson University Cooperative Extension Service has been serving York County for over 100 years. The Extension Service works to engage citizens to improve economic development and quality of life by delivering research-based information in agriculture,

natural resources, food safety and nutrition, economic and community development, and

4-H youth development. Your local office is involved in Ag & Art Tour, Master Gardeners, canning classes and youth.

    2014 marks the 100th anniversary of the Smith-Lever Act, which formalized the Cooperative Extension Service, a state-by-state national network of educators who extend university-based knowledge to the people. As we celebrate 100 years of extending knowledge and changing lives, we also want to celebrate South Carolina’s role as an early leader in the extension movement. The “Clemson Model” of extension became the basis for the Smith-Lever Act, authored by Georgia Senator Michael Hoke Smith and South Carolina Representative A. Frank

Lever. Learn more about our 100 years at www.clemson.edu/100.

Chamber Offers Web Advertising

  

   The Greater York Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce three new website advertising strategies to help increase its members brand recognition in the online marketplace.
   With over 3,300 page views and more than 1,800 visitors to the GYCC website in August 2012, advertising on the Chamber’s website increases viewers’ knowledge of what Chamber Members have to offer.
   The Chamber is introducing three levels of web advertising. The premier level advertiser appears on the GYCC homepage rotating every 10 seconds with three other advertisers. The ad will be designed and customized for each advertiser.
   The second opportunity allows members to advertise in the online business directory next to their membership listing with a 2” x 3” space perfect for a business card.
   The third opportunity places a company logo in the online business directory.
