LUSK – The Road Runner Homemaker’s met Oct. 17 for a business meeting, which included plans for the upcoming Achievement Day.
On Nov. 14, the club will host the County Achievement Day, which includes clubs from Node and Indian Creek. There will be a baked potato bar luncheon, awards given out and a presentation by Sena Pearson on “Celebrating Wyoming Women.”
Social networking was brought to our attention by Kim Smith. Discussion followed with everyone being in agreement to start a Niobrara County Homemaker Facebook page.
New ideas for next year’s projects were open for discussion. Acts of Kommunity Kindness will replace our Secret Pal commitment.
Also on the agenda was the planning of our Christmas Party, set for Nov. 21, at the First Baptist Church. Club members were asked to bring certain lunch items according to the first initial of their first name by hostess Sharon Cardwell. There will be a short business meeting to tie up unfinished items from the Achievement Day, followed by lunch and the unveiling of the Secret Pals.
After a BYOL (bring your own lunch), club members culminated the year-long Quilts of Many Colors project, displaying 34 items. The Senior Center donated fabric to the club, which resulted in many colorful handmade quilts. Crocheted afghans, fleece tied blankets and boughten blankets donated exclusively for this project were distributed to four local agencies. Linda Kane and Michelle Kruse each made a beautiful quilt for the Senior Center to raffle off as a Thank You for all the fabric that we received.
Interested parties are encouraged to join the club members on Nov. 14 for the luncheon and program, to follow them on Facebook or just do it the old fashion way and give Denise Smith a call at the Extension Office to find out more about Niobrara Homemakers. Come join if you are new in the area and would like to meet new people or you have been here all your life and would like to share your talents. Clubs today are more than “just your mother’s Homemaker’s.” See for yourself and be prepared to laugh and have down-home camaraderie.
