Greensburg — St. Maurice Community Extension Homemakers

The St. Maurice Community Extension Homemakers held their August meeting at McCamment's Inn. All nine members attended as well as six guests. We all enjoyed a delicious meal and visiting. We had a short meeting after dinner with the Night Club to make plans for Women Just Want To Have Day Oct. 27 at the Extension Office.

We took a picture of the club members for the 100th anniversary of Extension Homemakers. Each club is to turn in a picture to the county. We had seven members who helped in some way at the fair.

Several members helped stuff puppy pillows. We stuffed and sewed 82 pillows Sunday night when we were watching the building.

Rita Hellmich was in  charge of the Make It and Take It craft. She showed how make a bow, and she also helped check in exhibits and also release them. Rosie also helped with the puppy pillows.

The club had several exhibits at the fair. Eileen thanked the club for all their help at the fair.

The next club meeting will be at 7 p.m. Sept. 6 at the home of Evelyn Dramer. Members are to bring items of various Extension Homemakers lessons and pictures to be put on display at the Historical Society in October.

Everyone was reminded of Achievement night Oct. 4.

Linger Awhile Homemakers Club

The Linger Awhile Homemakers Club met at 7 p.m. Aug. 22 at the home of Paulette Duerstock for their regular monthly meeting.

A group picture was taken of our club for the Decatur County Extension Homemakers 100th anniversary display.

President Diann Reisman opened the meeting with the Club Creed and Pledge to the Flag. For devotions, Paulette read a poem entitled "Life's Canvas" by Frances Culp Wolfe.

Theresa Ripperger gave the thought of the month: "Life affords no greater responsibility, no greater privilege, than the raising of the next generation." Eight members answered roll call by telling about a State Fair memory. Minutes of the July meeting were read and approved and Rosemary Schroeder gave the Treasurer's report.

Diann attended the Aug. 6 EH Council meeting and reported on checks presented to New Directions and Decatur County Hospice.

Also, individual clubs are encouraged to contribute items for the DCEH 100th anniversary display at the Decatur County Historical Society.

Paulette attended the Fall District Meeting at Vevay and gave her report on subjects discussed, including Home & Family Conference next June 12-14, 2013 which promises to be "unique, electrifying & memorable," the National Volunteer Outreach Network, and the Water Around the World Project as well as Cancer Research at Purdue University.

For health and safety, Irene Tebbe read excerpts from "The Power of Hugging," an article written by Wanda Lou Willis. She writes that hugs can convey more than words; comfort, caring, kindness, love, and they can lift your spirits. Studies have proven that hugs can lower our blood pressure and heart rate and reduce stress. A hug provides comfort and connection like nothing else. They certainly aid in relieving mental and emotional stress and just plain feel good.

Diann presented the lesson on Storm Preparedness.

Topics covered were severe thunderstorms and lightening, tornados, drought/extreme heat, extreme cold/snow, protecting your pets, as well as having a plan in place where your family is to meet following a disaster. Also, take pictures of your possessions and keep them with your important papers such as birth certificates, social security cards, marriage certificates, a will, Power of Attorney, insurance policies, car titles and property deeds, etc. in a fireproof safe.

For cultural arts, Paulette displayed a small child's sewing machine she received for Christmas more than 50 years ago when she was a child.

The winner of the 50/50 was Alberta McQueen. Our next meeting will be at the home of Irene Tebbe on Sept. 19 when the lesson will be "What Am I?" one of the fastest growing plants.
