Welcome! You may not know us; we are the Extension Homemakers of Gallatin County. We would like to tell you about ourselves. We are homemakers who live in Gallatin County and are involved in clubs sponsored by the University of Kentucky Cooperative Extension Service. Our organization begain in 1936.

Today there are five clubs which have been formed throughout Gallatin County. Each club meets once a month, September through May, either in a member's home or in a public meeting room.

Many clubs are involved with community projects or activities and use some of the money raised throughout the year to sponsor these efforts. We have supported local projects as well as International projects such as the Jamican Computer Lab Project, Ovarion Cancer Research Program, Community Baby Shower, Relay for Life, 4-H Camp Scholarships, Redifest, Restaurant Books Program and the Gallatin County Fair, just to name a few.

At club meetings there is an educational lesson given by a club member using information from the University of Kentucky. These are timely, pertinent topics which have been voted on by club members. At the beginning of the month, each club selects a member to attend a Learn with Us! session where the educational lesson is presented.

While education and leadership skills are important, perhaps the most  wonderful benefit of Extension Homemakers are the fellowship and sharing   that come about as a result of being part of the Gallatin County Homemakers!

You are invited to join the Gallatin County Extension Homemakers! Dues are only $6,00 per year which includes a $1.00 donation to the Ovarian Cancer  Fund.
