April Debs meet at Frette home

The April Debs Extension Homemakers met for their September meeting at the home of Ruth Frette.

President Debbie Hamdan thanked Frette as hostess and Gwen Steyskal as co-hostess. The meeting was opened with the pledge to the flag and the homemaker’s creed. Rosie McGuire led the song and roll call was answered by seventeen members. Jan Wahl read the minutes from the August meeting. Eleanor Lawyer gave the treasurer’s report.

Hamdan reported on the Homemakers Council meeting. Jennifer Stefancik thanked everyone who worked at the 4-H Fair. Lessons from the Make a Difference Conference are available at the Extension Office to be checked out. Six members from the club attended the district meeting in Ferdinand. The theme was “You Are One Smart Cookie” and a cookbook of cookie recipes was given to everyone attending the meeting. It was emphasized at the meeting that members should learn the mission statement and read it at all meetings. The program for the district meeting was on The Family Nutrition Program. One hundred and forty attended the meeting and 11 were from Daviess County. Money was raised at the silent auction for the Cancer Research fund at Purdue University.

President Hamdan handed out a list of responsibilities for the PowerHouse suppers for this school year.

Homemakers Month activities were discussed. Karen Barnard and Sandy York will have a homemakers display in the Daviess County Community Foundation Window on Main Street. It will feature homemakers through the years. If you have information call them. The Sugarland club is planning a Tour of West Baden/French Lick Hotel and lunch with shopping in the afternoon. McGuire is planning the past county presidents dinner in an Amish home on Oct. 3. The dinner will be open to all homemakers. McGuire read an article about Pearl McCall written by Kathryn Koenig. She was a teacher and received training at Purdue to come back and start clubs in the county.
