Mountain View Homemakers will meet from 11:30 a.m. until approximately 2 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 10, in the Extension building at the fairgrounds. There will be a covered dish lunch at noon. Any women interested in the program or in finding out more about the organization are welcome to attend. Visitors are not expected to bring food.
The major program for the day will be by Nancy Cole, who will give a demonstration of the basic techniques that she uses in papermaking. The beautiful papers she creates would add elegance to simple greeting cards or gift tags and can be used in many other ways. Her lovely recycled papers have bits of plant materials in them and she will have samples to show the finished product and some uses.
Esther Durgin from Leah House will also be with us to provide a ten-minute update on the local transformational home for single mothers. The Leah House was one of the eight or nine area non-profits benefiting from the money raised at the Homemaker’s annual auction in July.
Mountain View Homemakers is a monthly gathering of women who are interested in making the lives of their families and their community more livable.
