BUFFALO, Mo. -- The faculty and staff of the University of Missouri Extension in Dallas County will be holding an open house from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesday Nov. 12 at the Dallas County Extension Center located in the basement of the Dallas County Courthouse.

Refreshments will be served and faculty serving Dallas County will be on hand to answer questions and showcase some of the programs and services MU Extension has to offer.

In June, the Extension Center moved from the office it had been housed in on the main level of the Dallas County courthouse to the downstairs.

“This was a good move,” said Andy McCorkill, county program director for Dallas County Extension. “The increased security in the courthouse and reduced office space on the main level had made it difficult to continue our tradition of service to Dallas County residents.”

The office can now be accessed without going through security on the west side the courthouse.

“With well over double the office space and easier access to downstairs meeting rooms, the environment is more welcoming to both staff and patrons,” said McCorkill.

Customers who are unable to make it down the stairs can still use the main entrance on the east side of the courthouse. The deputy at the security desk will notify the extension center that there is a customer needing assistance. Extension staff can access a small office on the main level of the courthouse to serve those who are unable to make it down the stairs in a private setting.

For more information contact the Dallas County Extension Center at 417-345-7551 of visit the office during office hours: Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
