Extension Homemakers throughout Arkansas are dedicating this year to the celebration of the 100th anniversary of the beginning of Extension Homemakers/Home Demonstration work in the state. With the theme, “100 Years of EHC Service From Washboards to Keyboards,” observances will honor the past and highlight the present, while looking to the future.
As a part of the festivities, County Judge Joe Bodenhamer has officially proclaimed May as Extension Homemakers Month in Baxter County.
The statewide highlight of the year-long celebration will be held during the annual meeting of the Arkansas Extension Homemakers Council on June 5 through 7 at the Hot Springs Convention Center. A gala reception and dinner are planned June 6. Individuals representing statewide agencies and organizations with which Extension Homemakers/Home Demonstration have been associated will be featured on the program. County council presidents and milestone members of 50 years and more will be recognized.
The Arkansas Extension Homemakers Council is a volunteer organization associated with the University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture.
