Why belong to an extension Homemaker club?

There's a real beauty in belonging to an Extension Homemaker Club. In your club you will meet women who are a lot like you. They are concerned about their families, have similar lifestyles, and encounter similar situations.

Clubs meet monthly to learn more about their home and community and to have a good time with each other. Some clubs take trips and participate in community service activities.  All clubs have a good time and meet new people.

Your club will give you a chance to share ideas with these women. And by sharing your time and efforts with them, everyone learns. Sound fun and inspiring? It is!

But needless to say, the more sincere your effort and the more you invest in your club, the more you'll gain from it. So be a club investor – and reap the many benefits your club has to offer.
