The OSU Extension service has been a part of Linn County since 1911. The Linn County Extension Association, which aids the Extension Service, was started 27 years ago.
One of the main things that LCEA did was to start selling advertisements and begin publishing what is now the UPDATE. The main purpose of the paper was to get the word out about Extension services.
The UPDATE newspaper has gone through many changes over the years, the latest is the availability of an online format. On this page you will be able to access archive issues of UPDATE.
