Laurel County Extension Homemaker Clubs

 

Specialty Clubs

Our Specialty Clubs focus on learning, developing and preserving a specific skill, interest or activity.  There is a deliverate focus on sharing members skills with others to strengthen the community.  You do not have to be an expert in the area—we are all students who attend to learn and grow.  During the monthly meetings, members in these clubs work on personal projects, participate in group projects, and learn new techniques and methods from fellow members.  Our specialty clubs meet at the Laurel County Extension Office.
