Pine Bluff, Ark. –Jefferson County Extension Homemakers Celebrate Christmas in July

Annual Event Kicks Office Recipe Collection for Holiday Foods Show

Jo Ann Carr, President-elect, recently welcomed members and guests to “Christmas in July.”  The event which is the kick-off for Jefferson County Extension Homemaker's Holiday Foods Show was held in the conference room of the Jefferson County Extension office located at 500 South Idaho Street in Pine Bluff.   Carr recognized the clubs and their responsibilities:  Willing Workers of White Hall - Decorations, Camden Road - Hostesses, Heart-N-Hands - Registration, Grace Willing Workers and Lunch Bunch - Clean up.  The room was beautifully decorated in a Christmas décor featuring lanterns, Santas, and miniature Christmas trees.

After the invocation led by Wanda Felts, Inspiration Co-Chairman, the group enjoyed a delicious buffet featuring finger foods.  The recipes for the dishes were collected and will be considered for the Holiday Foods cookbook.  Debbie James, Continuing Education Co-Chairman, taught the group a Holiday Craft.  The craft was a Snowman/Snowflake Christmas Ornament.  Everyone enjoyed the food, craft, and fellowship and looked forward to collecting recipes and working to make this year's Holiday Foods Show, scheduled for Friday, October 30, the best ever.
