One of the major missions of the E.H. Past Presidents Club is to support local 4-H programs and the work and activities of the Putnam County Extension Service.

The Past Presidents Club which was formed in 1953 raises funds though two annual events, their fall arts and crafts show and their annual garage sale in the spring of each year. Both of these events provide opportunities for local Extension Homemaker members and other residents to sell items.

Both events have been held continuously for over 30 years at the county fairgrounds. The arts and crafts show, which aims to provide local craftsmen a chance to sell and showcase their unique crafts, is traditionally held the first weekend of November each year.

The 2018 garage sale is scheduled for Saturday, April 7. Persons interested in participating in either of the 2018 events can contact any E.H. Past President for more information.
