Homemaker Creed

Let us join together to educate and serve the members of our organization and the community.

Let us be aware 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 allows us.

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

– Caroline Mayo, Franklin County
