Homemakers Achievement Night honors Hellmich, Davis

The Homemakers of the Year was the highlight of the annual Achievement Night recently.

Rita Hellmich was our Homemaker of the Year. Rita has been an Extension Homemaker for 38 years. She has been a member of the St. Maurice club, and in 2010 started the Sewing Club. Rita is very active in various Extension Homemaker activities as well as in various community activities. Rita is active in her church and is very involved with her family. Rita was very deserving of this award.

This year our president, Marilyn Davis, received the “President - Extraordinaire” award. This was a special presentation in honor of the 100th anniversary of Extension Homemakers in Indiana. Marilyn has been our county president since 2007 and still is. She does a super job.

The Hi Nabor and Evening Bells were hostesses for the evening. The theme was Country. We all enjoyed a delicious meal of barbecue and all the trimmings. Our drinks were served in pint jars and they were our favors to take home.

Our entertainment for the evening was Brianna Evans who played and sang.

We also had presentations by our Sewing and Quilting clubs. Awards were given for perfect attendance and Merit awards as well as a memorial service for our deceased members in the past year.

Here are recipes to try:

German Potato Salad (in the slow cooker)

6 slices bacon

3/4 c. chopped onions

1 can cream of chicken soup

1/4 c. water

2 T. vinegar

1 tsp sugar

Mix. Pour into cooker. Cover and cook on low four hours. Serve warm or at room temperature. Makes six to eight servings.
