Waldo County Extension Homemakers - WCEH General Information

Waldo County Extension Homemakers

Extension Homemakers is a volunteer group that has the goal of developing leadership, supporting worthy community causes, and promoting University of Maine Cooperative Extension’s educational programs in WaldoCounty. The purpose of this group remains tied to strengthening and extending adult education into the home and community.

Extension Homemaker group members help to extend the resources of the University of Maine Cooperative Extension into their communities through educational opportunities and service projects. Members generally meet several times throughout the year [often monthly], participate in educational programs, and identify community projects they want to support.

As local members, Extension Homemakers in Waldo County either belong to a local community group or are members-at-large within their communities.  Local groups are involved with assisting with many different community projects such as local food pantries, elderly or veterans groups, scholarships for high school students, and much more.  In addition, all members have the opportunity to learn with others, make friends, and contribute to their community and county.  They gain leadership skills and are able to share interests and talents with others. 

Local members come together to form a county group led by the Waldo County Extension Homemakers Council.  The Homemakers Council operates according to a set of bylaws, has officers, and meets on a quarterly basis.  They coordinate a spring and fall meeting for the membership, work in cooperation with the University of Maine Cooperative Extension to offer public educational programs through the Cabin Fever Reliever Program, Quilt Days, or other educational events throughout the year, and award a scholarship to a worthy Waldo County resident each year.

Waldo County Extension Homemaker membership is open to anyone who is interested in learning new information to improve their personal, family, and community life or who is interested in educating and serving members of the Extension Homemakers groups and the communities.  For more information, contact the Waldo County Extension Office.
