Mountain View Homemakers will meet  11:30 a.m.-2 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 10, in the Extension Building at the fairgrounds.

There will be a covered dish luncheon at noon, followed by a sewing workshop to create comfort pillows and colorful pillowcases for the people who live at Pine Ridge Extended Care Center and those people who are served by Hospice.

Visitors are welcome to attend and should not worry about bringing food. Those visiting will find this a great time to get to know the members and join in on the fun. There is a need for sergers, sewing machines, and those who know how to use them. Others should just be willing to help move items, stuff pillows, iron cases or do other odd jobs.

Mountain View Homemakers is a 50-year-old monthly gathering of women who are interested in making the lives of their families and their community more livable. All meetings include lunch and  speakers or a hands-on-community project. There are no dues or membership requirements to be a part of Mountain View Homemakers.

The group has taken on the role of planning and producing the annual Holiday Bazaar, set for the first Saturday of November as a fund-raiser. There should be quite a bit of discussion at this meeting about plans for the bazaar. Once again, there will be many gift baskets for sale that would make wonderful Christmas gifts. Everyone is urged to bring goodies for the bake sale, the money from which will again go to the Ruby Sisson Memorial Library. In addition, everyone is looking forward to hearing about the menu planned by the young people representing the Youth Center.
