DEVELOPMENT OF A HOMEMAKER'S CLUB, LARIMER COUNTY, FORT COLLINS, COLORADO.
EDGINGTON, ROYAL H.
THE ORGANIZATION OF A HOMEMAKER'S CLUB FOR MOTHERS UNDER AID TO DEPENDENT CHILDREN WAS PRESENTED. THE CLUB WAS SPONSORED BY THE LARIMER COUNTY DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WELFARE. PERSONNEL FROM THE DEPARTMENT ASSISTED IN EVALUATING A PAST FAILURE OF A HOMEMAKER'S CLUB AND IN FORMULATING PLANS FOR A SECOND CLUB. A DISCUSSION OF THE FAILURE OF THE FIRST CLUB AIDED IN PLANNING FOR THE REORGANIZATION OF THE HOMEMAKER'S CLUB. SOME DECISIONS REACHED WERE THAT A PUBLIC MEETING PLACE WAS NEEDED, TRANSPORTATION OF MEMBERS SHOULD BE PROVIDED, AND BABY SITTERS SHOULD BE AVAILABLE AT THE MEETING PLACE. IT WAS NECESSARY TO PROMOTE SOCIAL RELAXATION AMONG THE MEMBERS, TO DEVELOP COHESIVENESS WITHIN THE GROUP, AND TO PROVIDE SUBJECT MATTER OF INTEREST TO THE GROUP. A QUESTIONNAIRE PREPARED FOR AND GIVEN TO MEMBERS SHOWED THAT THE ASSUMPTIONS WERE CORRECT REGARDING PLACE, TRANSPORTATIONS, AND BABY SITTERS. THE PREFERRED MEETING TIME WAS FROM 1 TO 3.30 P.M. ON WEDNESDAYS ONCE A MONTH. THE DESIRED PROJECTS WERE IN SEWING, FOOD DEMONSTRATIONS, AND HOME PROJECTS. THE FIRST MEETING OF THE SECOND CLUB WAS A SUCCESS. AGENDA, AND QUESTIONNAIRES AND ANSWERS WERE APPENDED.
