Members of the Clay County Extension Homemakers Clubs met for a synonymous meeting at the hospitality pavilion located at the 4-H Fair.

With more than 100 people in attendance, Committee Chairman Jean Alsip was pleased with the turnout.

"It was a very successful day," she said. "I think everyone enjoys coming out and listening to the music."

The guest speaker was Duane Sorenson, who spoke about the benefits of gardening and how food has changed since the 1940s.

Homemakers Day at the Fair has been in progress for approximately 25 years and each year the program changes a little.

"The program has a life of its own," she said. "It changes throughout the years and it grows."

Alsip said the goal of the Extension Homemakers is an educational process in which homemakers can interact and learn with other homemakers.

There are 10 Indiana Extension Homemaker clubs in Clay County.

"We are always looking for new members," Alsip said. "We welcome new members at any time."
