The Extension Homemakers Creed

six hands linking to show team spiritLet 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 county allows us.

May our examples provide a beacon for others to follow and may our efforts ensure a future for homemakers everywhere.
