Ladies Day -- an afternoon to remember

Friday, July 29, 2005

Kayla and Mallory Minor model cowgirl outfits as part of the fashion show during the Clay County Extension Homemakers Ladies Day at the Fair on Thursday. They are the daughters of Jesse and Dawn Minor. The sisters' outfits were made by Joy Minor.

Thursday was Ladies Day at the Clay County Fair and the Extension Homemakers made sure it was an afternoon to remember.

"Let's Get Organized" was this year's theme, with a full afternoon of events taking place in the hospitality tent.

The program featured a fashion show with area girls modeling handmade clothing. Sharon Koehler was the guest speaker, offering some creative organization tips. Shirley Anderson gave a humorous presentation entitled "House Cleaning Tips -- Better Known as How to Fool Your Husband." Closing remarks were presented by Peggy Davis, consumer and family science educator. Myrna Heffner provided music throughout the program.

Many open class awards were presented, along with numerous door prizes from local merchants.

"It's a way to get information out to people," said coordinator Shirley Koehler. "Most of our programs are educational."

In addition to Ladies Day, extension homemakers clubs are also in charge of the open class exhibits at the fair, along with running the popular Ice Cream Wagon.

Clay County Extension Homemakers Clubs participating in this year's fair include: Cloverland, Country Pals, Everwelcome, H.O.M.E., Jackson Township Better Homes, Modern Homemakers, Pioneers, Town and County, Tri-County, Van Buren and Washington Township Circle.
