Joel De Jong’s Last Day at Extension

Joel De Jong celebrated his last day of work at Plymouth County Extension with an community event at the Le Mars Convention Center.  Well-wishers from the area came to thank Joel for his work as the Area Agronomist.

ISU Vice President for Extension, Dr. John Lawrence – presented a gift remembering Joel’s service.

There were dozens of people who waited to greet Joel, and enjoy a meal.

One farmer wanted to talk shop…

A sculpture Joel bought at a fundraiser was among the memorabilia on exhibit Wednesday.

And the ISU mascot also made an appearance!
