COSHOCTON – The Coshocton County OSU Extension Office and Whit’s worked together to create a unique way for the public to help celebrate OSU Extension’s 100th anniversary.

Through the month of June, Whit’s will offer a Centennial Sundae.

“It has all the ingredients for a buckeye,” said Emily Adams, agriculture and natural resources educator, county extension director OSU Extension Coshocton County.

The sundae has vanilla custard, chocolate syrup, peanut butter, Reese Cups and crushed Oreos.

“It’s a lot like Whit’s Buckeye Madness sundae, but we added crushed Oreos to symbolize dirt and the agriculture side of OSU Extension,” Adams said. “There also is a stick with a 4-H emblem that is added to them.”

Whit’s is part of The Frontier Power Company, which Adams said is a big supporter of OSU Extension.

“I first thought of them (Whit’s) because Frontier Power is always so willing to help us,” Adams said.

Keith Smith, director for OSU Extension, recently visited Coshocton, to enjoy a Centennial Sundae with Adams.

“We just asked all 88 counties to do some kind of (centennial) celebration,” he said. “We didn’t tell them what to do; we just gave them some guidelines and left it up to them as how to celebrate. They’ve done a number of different kinds of things and we’ve had a lot of fun.”

The local OSU Extension office is located in room 110 of the County Services Building on Seventh Street. For information on programs and services offered by the office, call 622-2265 or visit coshocton.osu.edu.
