At least 40 groups will participate throughout Otsego County in “Operation Advance,” reported W. Dale Brown, Otsego County Agricultural Agent.
All but three of the members of the county Steering committee have already sent to the County Extension office the list of local discussion leaders, according to Mr. Brown, “and we expect to hear from these in the near future, so that February will see at least the 40 gruops reported to us, participating in Operation Advance,” he said.
Operation Advance will focus on four basic issues: Community Growth and Development; Education and the Future; Resources — Land, Water and People; and Amidst World Tensions. Discussions will be held in February in small groups of about 10 to 12 persons in the county.
