I became a partner with UW-Extension in 1948 when I joined the Witwen Homemaker Club of Sauk County. As a young bride I learned so much - cooking, sewing, and working together with members of all age groups. Extension taught me how to be a leader, serving as President of the Sauk County Extension organization. I have been a member of LIVING FLAG since 1953, marching in many parades. Trip to Europe with the Extension chorus and home stays have been highlights. Charles Kuralt of CBSTV gave us three minutes of fame on 4th of July Parade in Witwen in 1980. Name change to Home and Community Education has given us new ways of involving youth in community projects. I will be 90 years old in January, and still involve myself in new Extension programs and projects and fundraisers for scholarships.
