Kewaunee County residents yearning for the days of their youth in 4-H do not have to look very far. The Association for Home and Community Education (HCE) is a statewide non-profit organization through the UW-Extension office providing educational opportunities for local residents, improving the leadership and decision making skills of its members, and giving opportunities to serve their community. Kewaunee County has one of the most active associations in the state consisting of nine different clubs. From visiting grade schools to read books to sponsoring a number of different scholarships and fundraisers, HCE co-president Mari Fager says she is proud of its members.
As associations across the country celebrate National HCE Week beginning November 5, Fager says one of their next projects will be volunteering at the Kewaunee School District’s Holiday Extravaganza December 2. We have information on how you can join HCE and attend one of the club’s monthly meetings online with this story.
