DSC_0011TIVERTON CENTER – The Thursday morning session of the Tiverton Community Institute was filled with educational information and a few laughs thanks to Pooch Blackson, who serenaded the day’s first guest speaker Emily Adams. “I don’t have a big presentation so thank you Pooch for helping to fill some of my time,” Adams said before giving her presentation on the OSU Extension Coshocton County Office. Adams is the office’s agriculture and natural resources educator, county extension director. She spoke on classes that the Master Gardeners are offering to the public and fertilizer certification training. “I love coming here because it is a great reminder of the rich history our county has in wanting to connect with one and other and wanting to learn and to continue to improve and grow.” Blackson jumped up from the audience again after Adams presentation to fill a few minutes before Ken Smailes spoke about being a trader in 1765 in Ohio Country, which is what the area was called at that time. The Tiverton Community Institute was held March 4-5 at the Tiverton Grange. This was the 113th year for the annual event and next year’s is already set for March 2-3, 2016.
