Happy New Year!
A Salute to Volunteers
"I shall pass through this world but once.
Any good therefore that I can do or any kindness that I can show
to any human being, let me do it now. Let me not defer or neglect
it, for I shall not pass this way again."
No theme was set for this issue of Metro News, but
as fate would have it, there are several articles on volunteerism.
Therefore, we devote this issue to the volunteers who help the
Alabama Cooperative Extension System continuously meet its goals
and objectives. We salute you for the contributions that you
have made over the years. Without your help, Extension would
not be as successful in touching the lives of thousands of people
across the state and around the world!
Thank you and best wishes in the New Year!
