Association for Home and Community Education


The Collins Homemakers Club started in 1948 in Collins with about 25 members. They met in the homes of the members.  There were lessons on baking, cooking, sewing, etc.

We now have about 10 active members.  We meet  once a month ( September – May) @ 6:00 P.M. at the homes of members.  We are affiliated with the Manitowoc County Extension Office.

 The name has changed to ‘Association for Home and Community Education’.  We get our lessons from the County Extension leaders at meetings that are held for representatives of each club.  One or two members go to these meetings and bring the lessons back to the club.

 We are active in crafts and projects for nursing homes in the area.  We have a Christmas Party to which our husbands are invited.  We go out to eat and exchange gifts with the ‘Secret Pal’ that we have had all year.  In May, our last meeting for the season we have a pot luck supper with our husbands invited and we have an exchange student from a foreign country to speak.  There are no meetings in the summer months.

 There are many opportunities to get involved at the County, State and National level.

 PLEASE COME AND JOIN US FOR AN EVENING OF LEARNING AND FUN AND FELLOWSHIP.  Call 920.772-4134  or 920.772.4415 for information.
