Extension Homemakers celebrate 100 years: Always Welcome Homemakers Club

RUSHVILLE — Extension Homemakers around the Hoosier state are celebrating 100 years of service. Each publication between now and the anniversary, April 7, 2013, we are featuring memories, stories and tributes to the many accomplishments and members involved throughout the years. Have you been a member or was a mother or grandmother a member in the past. Become involved again in making new memories by calling Gracie Marlatt at the Extension office at: 932-5974. The local celebration will begin at 2 p.m. April 7 at the Root Building at the Rush County Fairgrounds. Everyone is welcome.

Today, we’re pleased to shine the spotlight on the Always Welcome Homemakers Club of Rush County.

Always Welcome Homemakers Club is one of the oldest still existing clubs in the county.

In 1924, the Always Welcome Club of Center Township was formed and 10 years later, in 1934, they affiliated with Rush County Homemakers. At that time, there were 14 charter members.

The club grew until there were 60 members and so a new club was formed.

Although they only have four members today, they are active in supporting all the present county activities such as First Books, Scholarship Fund, Sewing for Riley, Cancer Research and Mental Health.

They work on county committees for the Rush County Fair and Sewing Seminar.

They enjoy eating out and sightseeing and present a lesson to members every other month.
