Allegany County Gets Ag Education Grants

Teaching kids in Allegany county about agriculture just got a little easier, thanks to 45-thousand dollars in grants.
The state money goes to support the ‘Ag in the Classroom’ program.
State Senator Catharine Young secured $20,000 for the Cornell Cooperative Extension in Allegany County and $25,000 for the Cooperative Extension in Livingston County to support Agriculture in the Classroom programs.
The program teaches understanding and appreciation of where food comes from by helping educators, students and communities engage with the agriculture industry.
And learning isn’t just confined to the classroom. at the Olean Library tomorrow, it won’t be kids, but adults, older adults who’ll be learning. The library’s presenting a program about social secuity benefits and what you’re entitled to.
at Olean library Thursday from 6 to 7:30 p.m.
Topics include: Medicare & Medicaid coverage, social secuity work incentives.
