The Mississippi County Extension Homemakers County Council meeting was held recently at the Mississippi County Public Library Multi-Purpose Room in Blytheville. Carolyn Smallwood, County president, presented Jay Ziolko, director of the Mississippi County Library System, with an autographed copy of the 100 year history of the Arkansas Extension Homemakers book, A Splendid Piece of Work, by Elizabeth Griffin Hill. The book will be placed in the Arkansas room.
The theme was Healthy Lifestyle Choices and Torya Woods, 4-H agent for the University of Arkansas, Division of Agriculture, Mississippi County Cooperative Extension Service, was the featured speaker.
