We have two people in Nursing Homes that
we remember at Christmas time, Birthdays,
and special occasions with gifts and
cards. If one passes away, we choose
another one.
The Heights-Trappe Homemakers' Club
hosted two bus trips. One was to Betty
Crocker Kitchens and Hamm's Brewery,
and the other was to House on the Rock
and Little Norway.
We donated a set of dishes to a Town of
Texas family who lost their home by fire.
We also gave $50 to a family who lost
their husband and father. There were 11
children in that family.
We also gave clothing to a needy Town of
Texas family.
We have had many bake sales, and arts and
crafts sales, and also a few card parties.
Last year we started baking Birthday cakes
for all the boys who have September
Birthdays at the Lincoln County Boys School.
HEIGHTS-TRAPPE HOMEMAKERS' CLUB
In 1940's
We furnished a room at Sunny Vale Manor.
For several years we made cancer bandages
at every meeting.
We also made a sun bonnet patchwork quilt
and sold it to raise money for our Club.
Last year we sold dishcloths and one year
we sold vanilla to get a 50 cup percolator
coffee pot.
