Ride for the Clover 2016!

Good afternoon, I am excited to announce the upcoming fourth annual motorcycle tour Ride for the 4-H Clover, August 26-28. Regent Mike Cheney will again be participating in this year’s ride. Regent Cheney’s vision for the motorcycle tour is to increase awareness of the importance of 4-H youth programs and the Cooperative Extension Service. This year’s ride will not only be a great opportunity to learn about Extension and Research programs in the College of ACES, but also an opportunity to support the New Mexico 4-H Program. You will experience great fellowship and the beauty of northern New Mexico. We currently have 64 riders registered for this year’s Ride for the 4-H Clover. If you have not yet registered, please consider doing so, we would love to have you join us. Anyone who wishes to participate but is not a motorcycle rider is certainly welcome. To find out more information about the motorcycle tour and to register for the ride visit the link at http://ridefortheclover.nmsu.edu or call 505-983-4615. Thank you again and hope you can join us for this year’s Ride for the 4-H Clover, Jon. Jon Boren New Mexico State University Associate Dean and Director Cooperative Extension Service P.O.
