Somerset County Extension Homemakers Local Groups - Ripley Extension Homemaker Group


Ripley Extension Homemakers are one of 7 local community groups that comprise Somerset County Extension Homemakers.  We have 18 members and meet on the 2nd Tuesday of every month.

Some projects we have recently been involved in are:

We enjoyed the program on Maine Birds the best.  A video was shown on feeding birds in winter and the different kinds of feeders and birdhouses there were.  We also learned about homemade bird food.  We discussed different ways to attract different birds and when they were likely to come to our feeders.  Our leader had many books with pictures of birds, and her collection of bird ornaments was of interest to many.
