A steady stream of local and area residents found their way to the campus of the Clinton County Extension Office last Thursday afternoon as the local arm of the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service celebrated 100 years of existence.

The local Extension Service representatives were on hand to showcase the various programs and services available through the Clinton County office and the ways they work with the University of Kentucky offices to provide even more consumer, agriculture and 4-H services to Clinton County.

Above, several on hand at the beginning of the celebration last Thursday afternoon, gathered underneath the large tent to visit and enjoy a viewing of “Scenes from Clinton County” a film that was produced by the late A.B. Gibson in 1957.

The event was staged from 3:30 p.m. until 5:30 p.m.
