Lee Extension Preparing for Centennial

VERONA, Miss. (AP) — The Lee County Extension Service is preparing for its centennial celebration.

The event will be held from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Lee County Agri-Center in Verona. It’s in honor of the 100th anniversary of the federal Smith-Level Act, which created the extension service.

A local newspaper reports that the celebration includes displays of work done throughout the year by 4-H members. Displays will include traditional crafts such as needlework, jewelry-making and painting, as well as a robotics demonstration.
