Per guidance from UMS, the State, and Maine CDC, public gatherings of Extension Homemakers has been discontinued at this time, due to increased risk of infection from covid 19.  As risks decrease, Extension Homemaker Clubs in Aroostook County, and elsewhere in the State of Maine, may resume meetings. The safety and well-being of our volunteers is very important to us, and we regret that the Aroostook County Extension Homemakers are unable to meet at this time. 

Aroostook County Extension Homemakers are part of the Maine Extension Homemakers. The ACEH consists of 5 local groups, Caribou Day, Caribou Homemakers, Caribou Night, New Sweden and Spragueville.  Through the years, the purpose of the Maine Extension Homemakers has remained tied to strengthening and extending adult education into the home and community.  Maine Extension Homemakers has the goal to develop leadership, promote the University of Maine Cooperative Extension’s educational programs in all parts of Maine, and to support worthy community causes.

Homemakers Creed

Let us join together to educate and serve the members of our organization and the community.
Let us be aware of and be concerned for each other.
Let us do all things in a caring manner and with true enjoyment.
We truly believe in the home and community involvement that living in a free country allow us.
May our examples provide a beacon for others to follow and may our efforts ensure a future for homemakers everywhere.
