Winter, 1983 issue of Tar Heel Homemakers
Vivian B. Wilson, who joined the Moyock Home Demonstration Club in Currituck County in June, 1932, was recognized among 54 Extension Homemakers with 50 years of membership during the 1982 National EHC Conference in Ohio. She has continued her membership in the Virginia Edwards Extension Homemaker Association in North Carolina though she moved across the state line into Virginia in 1937.
Mrs. Wilson’s mother was a charter member of the Moyock HDC so Mrs. Wilson said it was natural for her to follow in her footsteps after her marriage.
She was a delegate to the ACWW Triennial Conference more than 30 years and and has been active in all phases of EH work through the years.
The McLeansville Extension Homemakers Association of Guilford County celebrated its 50th anniversary with a reception honoring the charger members on October 30, 1982, at Mount Pleasant United Methodist Church, Greensboro.
There were five members when the club was organized in 1932: Mrs. Elizabeth Andrew, Mrs. Ethel Jobe, Mrs. Elsie Paisley, Mrs. Callie Smith, and Mrs. A.C. Whittle. Mrs. Whittle is deceased and Mrs. Paisley was hospitalized so only three charter members were present.
Mrs. Paisley was state president of the North Carolina Home Demonstration Clubs in 1942.
Members, friends, and relatives came to visit and reminisce during the afternoon. A display table had pictures of club members from many years ago and also articles made by the members through the years.
McLeansville Extension Homemakers Association is still active in extension and community affairs. There are 23 members this year.
