Meeting Alumni, Loving Life As An Extension Field Specialist
I've got one of the best jobs. It's different every day and I get to meet some wonderful folks doing good things around the state of New Hampshire. My husband, retired now for 20 years, told me after a very trying day when we first were married, that if you like your job 85% of the time, you are better off than most people. Meeting the alumni who shared items for the 100th Anniversary of Cooperative Extension display for North Haverhill Fair emphasized for me why I like working for Cooperative Extension and my job's daily journey to provide education and information to the citizens of New Hampshire.

Henry Homeyer : Trees and Shrubs for the Shade
I grew up in a small town in rural Connecticut. Behind the house there was a brook and a hardwood forest with a high canopy of old maples that created a cool space for spending hot summer days. My favorite understory tree was a small, bushy tree that had very fragrant leaves and stems,which I decided must be witch hazel, as the barber splashed witch hazel on my neck after each haircut, and it was vaguely the same. I frequently chewed on the leaves and green twigs in lieu of the chewing gum that was forbidden to me.
