2013 Dis.Mtgs ProgramsOctober is the month for our Extension Homemakers District Rallies.  A Rally is held in each of our three districts and the rallies this year were terrific.  Our reports show an attendance of close to 600 at the three meetings.  This was the first District Rally for each of the new Directors, and along with their Associate Directors, they did a wonderful job of organizing the meetings and presenting their programs.  Registrations, programs, lunch and Silent Auctions all went smoothly.  We thank the District Teams for all their hard work.

District Teams consisted of  Ozark District:  Cheryl Stewart, District Director, and her Associate Directors, Barbara Summers and Ruth Hall; Delta District: Krista Brimer, District Director, and her Associate Directors, Jo Ann Carr and Patsy Petit  below; Ouachita District:  Judy Simmons, District Director, and her Associate Directors, Darlene Holliday and Judy Brink.  We also thank Carolyn Morris, Treasurer, who made the trip to each meeting and made sure the financial part went well.  The first three pictures show District Directors, (and in some cases, Associates) in action.

All three Districts presented the same program with some small differences by each District Director.  The main speaker at each meeting was a representative of the UAMS AR Saves Program concerning Strokes.  The program consisted of information regarding what to do immediately in case of stroke or symptoms.

Skits presented at the rallies concerning the theme, “Reaching Your EHC Dreams” were hilarious and we thank Krista Brimer who wrote the skit for us.

Dr. Anne Sortor, U of A Associate Director, FCS & 4-H Youth Development, surprised us with her presence at the Ouachita District Rally.  Kaye Green presented Alberta James, U of A Director for the Ouachita District, with an arrangement of mums from AEHC.  Alberta will be retiring at the end of the year and AEHC will surely miss her.
