Homemakers meet Feb. 11, all are welcome

Mountain View Homemakers will meet from 11:30 a.m. until approximately 2 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 11, in the Extension Building at the fairgrounds. There will be a covered dish lunch at noon. Anyone interested in finding out more about the organization is welcome to attend; and no need to bring food.

The program for the day is in two parts: First, the two vice presidents Cathy Rutherford and Denny Rose will each explain a portion of the group’s annual community outreach. Rose will give a concise overview of the non-profit community organizations that Homemakers can choose to support with money raised at the annual auction in July. Rutherford will briefly tell about this year’s two project work days: making “Pillows and Blankies” in March, and “Hope in a Bag” in May.

The second part of the program is a visit to the Crisis Pregnancy Center. Kathy Koy, the center’s director. was the speaker some months ago at a meeting. She invited members to come see the center and hear more about how it operates on a day when there would be no other people there. All those who want to do so will visit the center following a short business meeting conducted by Mary Webb, the club’s president.

The Homemakers organization is a monthly gathering of women who are interested in making the lives of their families and their community more livable. The meetings include lunch and either enlightening speakers or a hands-on community project. One auction fund-raiser every summer results in contributions to a number of local non-profit efforts. There are no dues or membership requirements and every interested woman will be welcomed.
