Elizabeth Hill’s Speaking Schedule

March 18, 2014

Elizabeth Griffin Hill, who researched our history and wrote A Splendid Piece of Work 1912 – 2012: One Hundred Years of Arkansas’s Home Demonstration and Extension Homemakers Clubs, will be speaking to local historical societies and other groups throughout Arkansas during 2014.  We will update her schedule on about the fifteenth of each month.  Elizabeth’s goal for 2014 is to ensure that copies of this vital piece of Arkansas women’s history are in libraries in every county.  We encourage all Extension Homemakers to come to Elizabeth’s presentations and support her as she introduces our history to our fellow Arkansans.  (Elizabeth invites all Extension homemakers to follow A Splendid Piece of Work on Facebook at
