Home Demonstration Glub News
BY MRS. T. J. O'NEIL
Macon County Home Demonstration Agent .
Home Demonstration club work j
has entered its Second year in Ma
con county. It would be impossible
to tell of all the work accomplish
ed in our first year. I will only
say: the clubs, county and state,
are well pleased with our record.
At the January meeting of the
county council the following sub
jects were decided upon for 1937.
Food and Nutrition
Home Gardening Recreation
1st Food and Nutrition. In most
farm homes there is an abundance
of home grown food, if the house
wife only knew the nutritive value
of food so as to make a daily
menu to get the nutrition needed
for the members of her family.
This is taught in the community
club meetings which are held once
2nd Home Beautification. Home
beautification does not mean the
dine of a large sum of money
as so many seem to think. It only
means the taking of what yo,u have
.it hand and using it to the best
advantage. Such as, fixing up the
yard by . pruning and thinning the
shrubbery, fixing the walk, steps,
etc., if you are planning on paint
ing,, selecting the colors best suit
ed to harmonize with ; the land
scape'; and knowing how to arrange
each room so as to give best ef
fect in promoting comfort and hap
3rd Curb Market. This is a place
for club members to sell their eggs,
chickens, cream, jelly, jams, cakes,
pies, pork products, hams, vege
tables, etc., for money to help with
the. family budget.
4th Recreation. I believe recre
ation is the least understood of our
projects. 1 shall not attempt to ex
plain it as that would take too
much snace. Will Only say, whoever
thinks the child is the only one
who needs recreation is sadly mis
taken. Psychologists assure us that
adults who have not had training
in their youth need to be taught
how to fill their leisure with inters
est. Every person , has a. natural
talent however slight, toward some
worthwhile hobby. Recreation will
heln each one to find time to do
some of the things he has always
wanted to do but did not know
how to go about doing them. I . ask
you as a club woman to try to in
terest' your neighbor, especially
young mothers, to join our club and
get the benefit of the demonstra
tions given by our home agent.
Let each club member determine to
do more this year than last, as we
have a long time goal a bigger
goal, and some day we will be
proud of a state with roadsides and
community property, as well as the
farm homes beautifully kept.
We can accomplish this if we
live up to the aims of our home
demonstration clubs which are to
make the world a better, happier
place for our fellowmen, then we
will be worthy of our heritage of
the Old North State.
