February 27:. Downsizing Your Home
This program should be of interest to many o4 us! It will be taught at the Henry County Extension Office at 1:30 by Trimble County Extension Agent, Jane Proctor. Learning to let go o4 household possessions +hot you have held on to for years can be difficult. However, when you are downsizing, you cannot take all of your possessions with you. The program is designed to help you start thinking about sorting through your possessions. This class is the Leader Training for March Homemaker Club lessons but everyone is welcome to attend. If the weather is bad call to check on the status. Many times even if school is cancelled the roads are fine by noon or so.
