June 6, 2016 - 6:30p.m.
Fayette County Extension Office
Gardenside Homemakers
The Gardenside Homemakers Club was started in early
1960, with about 20 young homemakers. They were all stay
at home moms with young children.
Invite a friend and join others that have an interest in
learning best practices in planning, budgeting, and saving
dollars when shopping for consumer goods and services.
Bring any extra coupons you have to share.
This is a fun way to network and save dollars.
Thank You
Dear Members of the Fayette County Homemakers,
Thank you for your generous donation of cards for care
packages. We are honored that you chose our organization
as your partner to show support for our troops. Your
generosity is greatly appreciated.
Military Missions, Inc. is a 501C3 nonprofit charity
established for the purpose of providing support to our
military, our veterans, and their families. Our organization
reaches Beyond the Yellow Ribbon in our
community! As our military personnel serve, providing
protection and safety for all of us, we work to give
something back to our troops, our veterans, and their
Military Missions, Inc. sends out care packages on a yearround basis to deployed military. Packages are sent out to
individuals as well as deployed military units. Our goal is to
provide a touch of home during long deployments. Your
donations make it possible to send these care packages.
Donations also make lives a little bit easier for those here
on the "home front," providing help for emergencies that
arise during a deployment. This support eases the minds of
our deployed military knowing that someone back home is
helping their family through a difficult situation. Our
bi-monthly support group meetings are also an important
element of encouragement to military family members.
Support also extends to our veteran community. Military
Missions, Inc. is honored to work alongside other
organizations in the community to support those who have
served to keep our nation free.
On behalf of the heroes who will be touched by your gift,
we are grateful. Thank you for partnering with Military
Missions, Inc. to support and encourage those that ensure
freedoms known only to Americans.
Linda Cummins
Military Missions, Inc.
The meeting place was in Gardenside Christian Church.
They would bring their children to the meeting. They had a
babysitter to watch the children. The women were all into
making crafts, that they would sell at the annual holiday
showcase at the Turfland Mall.
With the money earned, they would buy toys and 1 year a
T.V. for the Children’s Hospital and St. Joseph.
In later years we would have a plant sale and were able to
make donations to different charities, such as Salvation
Army, Ronald McDonald House, the Nest, The Galilean
Children’s Home, God’s Pantry and more.
We are also making recovery pillows, care bears, blankets
for the Linus Project, wheelchair bags for the Veteran’s
Home in Wilmore.
We are still a group of 20 members and are now meeting at
the Gardenside Baptist Church. We have, following the
lesson, a monthly potluck meal. The club also takes one
month a year to go to the Christian Towers to present the
lesson for that month and make some crafts with the
women there. We also do the Joy of Giving every year.
For social activities we go out to lunch and play cards at
different places. We have lost a few of our members and
added some new one over the years. We are very close and
good friends with one another and hope to be able to carry
on for a long time to come.
Tartan Hills Homemakers
Tartan Hills began in 1963. We meet at 7:00 in member’s
homes. This year we began meeting at 6:00 and having a
potluck dinner before the meeting. This gives us time for
fellowship before the meeting.
In the past we have had as many as 18 members, but we
now have 6 members; 3 of which are sisters. Even though
we are a small group, we always present a lesson and
participate in the Joy of Giving and other county activities.
Tartan Hills has had several members that have been
county officers. We have had several county presidents, vice
presidents, and treasurers from our club. The current
FCEH treasurer, Debbie Rice, is one of our members.
We would welcome new members into our group.
May is National Physical Fitness
Fayette County Cooperative Extension is supporting the
President’s Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition in honor
of National Physical Fitness and Sports Month. During the
month of May, we challenge all adults to get 30 minutes of
physical activity every day.
Did you know that regular physical activity increases your
chances of living a longer, healthier life? It also reduces your
risk for high blood pressure, heart disease, and some types
of cancer. Yet in Kentucky nearly 59% of adults don’t get
the recommended amount of physical activity and nearly
30% report they do not participate in any physical activity.
The Physical Activity Guidelines for Americans recommend
that adults:
Aim for 2 hours and 30 minutes of moderate aerobic
activity each week. Moderate activity includes things like
walking fast, dancing, swimming, and raking leaves.
Do muscle-strengthening activities – like lifting weights
or using exercise bands – at least 2 days a week.
Physical activity is for everyone. No matter what shape you
are in, you can find activities that work for you. Together,
we can rise to the challenge and get more active during the
month of May!
Quilter’s Guild Quibble

new skills and/or insights into different types of quilts
and quiltmaking. Members are encouraged to bring
completed quilts (and quilt tops) for Show and Tell.
Here’s what’s planned for the upcoming meetings:

about the history of kit quilts in the Midwest. Members
are invited to bring examples of old quilts and possible
kit quilts for discussion and Show and Tell.
