What do Club Members Do?

Participate in monthly club meetings and enjoy fun and fellowship while they learn. In addition to caring for any necessary business at monthly meetings, an educational program is presented by the Extension Agent, a trained leader or guest speaker. Topics include anything the group wants to learn about.

  • Travis EEA Bazaar – (Date-TBD) at Faith Lutheran Church, 6600 Woodrow Avenue, Austin, TX 78757

Become trained leaders through workshops and educational opportunities offered at the county, state and even the national level. The County Extension Agent regularly conducts “leader training” for club members, who, in turn, present the lesson to their respective club members.

Attend District, and State Conferences where they meet people from other locales with a common interest in strengthening families. Workshops and educational seminars are presented at these events.
