Eileen Fisse: Homemakers ready for spring events

When spring comes, it seems to be time to think more about Extension Homemakers activities.

If you have not got your reservation in for International night, it is not too late; just call Barb Smiley. Get your reservation in to enjoy the program April 7 when we visit Indonesia.

All be sure to bring you cultural arts exhibits. Remember this program and all our programs are open to everyone, so come and enjoy an evening of fun, fellowship and food with us.

The fair will be here before we know it. The dates are July 10 to 17. There will be sign up sheets at International Night to sign up to help at the fair.

Everyone received a list of open class exhibits in your last newsletter. If you have any questions just give me a call. Also, we need some volunteers to help with the pie eating contest; just give Marilyn a call. She will be willing to give you the information you need to know.
