Annie's Project Registration Open


October 4, 2018

“Real Colors” will kick off the first Annie’s Project on Monday, November 5th, according to Extension Agent Mary Rumph. Custer County Extension Agent Tara Andrews will lead the first workshop at the 6-week series designed to empower women in agriculture.

The Real Colors workshop is a tool commonly used to identify your own personal temperament or “color” and to learn how to distinguish the colors of those around you. Understanding those you work with leads to better communication and more successful relationships. Imagine working cows in the corral, instead of getting mad.

In addition to “Real Colors”, the first program will also feature “Generations Working Together in Agriculture” presented by Prairie County Extension Agent Sharla Sackman.

“We have a unique opportunity in agriculture to involve family members from different generations in our work,” said Sackman. “This presentation will help us understand some of those basic differences in how people of differing generations might approach a “ranch project” with conflicting expectations. Opportunities for enhancing communication will be stressed,” said Sackman.

Annie’s Project will be held on Mondays from 12:30-3:30 p.m. at the Broadus Community Center. The registration fee is $60 and lunch is included. Registration is due by October 31st. Other dates, topics and presenters include:
