 Ashland County UWEX 2014 Annual Report

For this report we chose a format with photographs that tell stories about our work. We realize how busy everyone is and we hope that a photo rich report will give you a good overview of how we work to improve life in Ashland County. We are relying on the old adage: a picture is worth a thousand words.

The University of Wisconsin Extension’s Purpose, Vision and Values, which appear on the front page, were developed to direct UW-Extension’s work. We’ve chosen to use the five key values, Community, Discovery, Inclusiveness, Relationships and Respect, to organize this report. The five values will each headline two pages of photos with descriptions of our educational programs that we think address each value. Please take a couple of minutes to enjoy a snapshot of our work in 2014.

Thank you,

Ashland County Extension Office
