Caldwell Extension Office Offering ‘Recharge’ Program for Mental and Physical Well-Being


As pandemic-related restrictions continue to ease across the state, the Caldwell County Cooperative Extension Office will begin offering more in-person classes in the coming weeks.

Joni Phelps with the family and consumer sciences office said people need a boost with the start of school coming up next month. She said they are offering a ‘Recharge’ class on Monday — one of the first in-person classes they’ve been able to offer in over a year.
