ii 8 The Gi vflle l mecrat/PathflnderOctober 16. 1975 by Gllmer Centy Extusiu Homemakers Homemakers in Gilmer County were working together in organi~.a- Lions when the Farm Woman's Creed read like this: "We believe in permanent agriculture, the farmer and farm life. We believe in the inspiration of the open country. We believe in the farm boy and girl, our fi,ture hope and we believe that a clean farm is as important as a clean conscious. We believe that the dignity of labor depends, not on what we do but how we do it. We believe in community spirit, a pride in home and neighbors and do our part to make our community the best in the state. We believe in giving and demanding a square deal in every act of life. We are proud to be farmers' wives and farmers' daughters and will try earnestly to be worthy of the name." This was about the time {1936-42) Ike Fatty was county agricultural agent and even though there was not an agent to work full time with women, Adele Harpold served as 4-H agent and assisted with the Extension program for women. Dr. M. R. McCluug followed as agriculture agent for a short time (1943-44}, followed by Harlan Hogue's long and valuable service {1945-68} and Everett Mason {1968 to the present}. In addition to Adele Harpold, other 4-H agents each wi| h the dqal role of working with youth and women, have been: Mary Elizabeth Wolfe 1946-48, Emma Gaston 1949, Virginia Dean 1950, Freda Burke 1950-69, Twila Moyers 1970-71, P~gy Church 1972, and Barbara Williams 1973, who remains the present 4-H agent.

Oldest records available show six communities with Farm Women Clubs in 1944 with 76 members. Two of those: Cedar Creek and Cox's Mill remain active today. Through the years other communities that have had clubs but no longer ez:kt are: Flat Run, Lockney-Normantown. Sand Fork, Rosedale, Steer Creek, Tanner, and Cedarville. Due to economic changes and shiftin in population new clubs were formed with often times a nucleus of women who had been members of another club which had ceased to be active. Communities with clubs at the present time are: Cedar Creek, Cox's Mill, Conings, Coal Valley, Baldwin, Glenville, and Kanawha Drive; with a membership of 123. Homemakers have seen their organization name changed from Farm Women to Home Demonstration to Extension Homemakers. They have seen social and economic change as well. (Many oil wells stand where once the corn was grown.) However, they belong to their community homemakers club for the same basic reasons as they did in the earlier days, namely for: social advantages, educational op- portunities, good training ground for leadership development, keeps them from getting into a rut, club ideals tend to make better citizens, and the fellowship they have with others. No doubt, the outstanding, long lasting community and county projects which groups have accomplished are: SAVE GAS JIM WEGMANN, INC.

Homemakers have always been a part of the "Parade of Belles" for the Folk Festival. Four community clubs have worked to build or purchase and renovate building for community centers. All clubs assist with and enjoy the annual Farm Show. Recently all clubs shared in providing some furnis~s for the county Extension Conference room. Yes, for the homemaker who has participated in Extension programs through the years many skills have been learned and all realize more knowledge is needed to solve problems of today. We are aware that success depends upon lots of people working together and that many problems cannot be solved in local communities or the county. We must continue to learn and become informed on public issues affecting our lives and those who will follow, so that we may become intelligently involved.
