October 2011


Colorado AgrAbility Program (CAP) staff members met with representatives of the Coalition for Older Adult Wellness (COAW). Among other things, COAW trains people to lead N'Balance (TM) fall prevention courses. The featured topic of this year’s CAP Winter Workshops will address mobility issues, so CAP will invite N'Balance instructors to attend and share information.

CAP was invited to present at district meetings of the Farmers Union Service Agency (FUSA). The Rocky Mountain Farmers Union is encouraging their network of local insurance agents to help raise awareness of AgrAbility services in their communities.

In cooperation with CSU’s College of Agricultural Sciences, CAP had a booth at the Colorado State Fair in Pueblo, Colorado. CSU Extension also invited CAP to be a part of the North Park Fair in Walden, Colorado.

Dr. Robert "Bob" Fetsch has retired from his position at the Colorado State University Department of Human Development and Family Studies and CSU Extension. He will continue to serve as Project Director of the Colorado AgrAbility Project through the end of the current grant workplan. Congratulations and thanks for over 13 years (and counting) of hard work and dedicated service to farm and ranch families in Colorado and beyond!
