Several members of the Lawrence County Extension Homemakers attended this year’s State Meeting in Hot Springs Aug. 12 and 13.
Among local recognitions, was Elaine Stoll, who was honored for 50 years with Arkansas EHC. She and her husband, John, were also thanked for their years serving as the Staging and Equipment Committee.
The Scrappers Extension Homemakers Club was recognized for submitting a 100 points project book in 2019. Karla Wadley accepted a certificate and check on behalf of the club.
In addition, Deborah Teague was installed as state vice president.
Mary Jane Callahan, who is currently serving as Delta District associate director, performed various duties during the two-day meeting, including working the registration table.
While the in-person attendance was reduced from several hundred to approximately 80, the awards banquet and luncheon were streamed live for those who could not attend in person.
“Our organization is blessed to be holding our meeting, postponed from early June, but it is sad that Covid cut our attendance,” Callahan said. “Visiting with old friends, meeting new friends, enjoying good food and conducting business of our organization has made it worth the trip.”
