An EH Club is a group of people who meet once a month to learn more about issues facing people today: personal and home safety; family relations and human development; foods and nutrition; the management of family resources; leadership; and clothing and textiles. These clubs also volunteer their time to important activities like the All Tomato Luncheon and Bradley County Fair. They donate time, goods and services to such worthy people and events as the Hope’s Place, Arkansas Children’s Hospital, local nursing home, making cancer turbans, and many others.
In the past, Extension Homemakers Clubs have been known as FACE Clubs and Home Demonstration Clubs. We have one traditional club in Bradley County. Each month, a designated leader attends a county-wide leader training conducted by the Cooperative Extension Service. The leader then presents the lesson to their fellow club members at their monthly meeting. We also have two project clubs in Bradley County, the Bradley Block Builders (Quilting) Club, and Block of the Month Club which also meet once a month.
Anyone who is interested in improving home and community life may join EHC. You may join the traditional club in the county, the project clubs, or become a member-at-large. Members-at-large may attend any special meetings and receive the Homemakers News newsletter. All EH clubs are open to all eligible persons regardless of race, color, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, national origin, religion, age, disability, marital or veteran status, genetic information, or any other legally protected status. The Cooperative Extension Service is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Employer.
