We’re so glad you are interested in our Adams County Home and Community Education (HCE) Association. Adams County currently has 3 clubs and approximately 75 members. There are nearly 5000 members statewide.
Wisconsin Extension Homemakers had its beginnings in the 1930’s to provide members an opportunity to learn and keep up-to-date in areas relating to home and family, to learn about their community and carry out programs that may improve the community and to share in the good fellowship and friendliness of the organization.
Today the reasons given to become a HOME AND COMMUNITY EDUCATOR are similar with some world focus included: social advantages of belonging, being useful and needed; fellowship to renew old friends and make new ones; educational advantages of people building – we are life-long learners, never too old to learn something new; leadership in helping to choose the paths of tomorrow; citizenship where we dare to make our local communities a better place; and world citizenship where we support endeavors all over the world to improve their homes and communities from teaching skills to improved water supplies!
This information was compiled to provide you with an explanation of the various aspects of the Adams County Home and Community Education Association programs. The words that are CAPITALIZED will be followed up with a more detailed explanation.
If there are any programs or areas that you would like to know more about, please do not hesitate to contact any HCE member or the Family Living Educator at the Extension office in the Community Center, Adams (608) 339-4237.
Persons who would like to receive the educational lessons offered through HCE but feel they do not have the time to attend monthly club meetings may join HCE as an INDIVIDUAL MEMBER.
