Mountain View Homemakers will meet from 11:30 a.m. until approximately 2 p.m., Thursday, March 10, in the Extension Building at the fairgrounds.
There will be a covered dish lunch at noon. Any woman interested in finding out more about the organization is welcome to attend and visitors are not expected to bring food.
The program for the day will be three representatives from local nonprofits. Musetta Wollenweber from the Senior Center will provide an update on the Meals on Wheels program. Jackie Welch, who heads the Ruby Sisson Library, will tell members and guests about the many new programs at the library. Maggie Ives will represent Big Brothers Big Sisters to explain the efforts of the local mentoring program. Each speaker will talk for about 10 minutes, then take questions.
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 a pool of money from which contributions to eight or nine local nonprofit efforts are made. The members do their best to learn about all potential recipients and to choose well from the many possibilities. There are no dues or membership requirements and every interested woman will be welcomed.
