Noble County Extension Homemakers
Extension Homemakers' Creed
We believe in the present and its opportunities, in the
future and its promises, in everything that makes life large
and lovely, in the divine joy of living and helping others.
And so we endeavor to pass on to others that which
has benefitted us, striving to go onward and upward,
reaching the pinnacle of economic perfection, in
improving, enlarging and endearing the greatest
institution in the world - THE HOME
