As a result of our Homemaker lesson last year on Know Your Elected Officials, Linda Herrington organized a trip to Frankfort.
State Rep. Tom McKee was an exceptional host. He arranged a visit to the Tourism and Economic Development Committee, a guided tour of the capitol, lunch and passes to the galley to observe the State Representatives in session. We also were present in the rotunda as HMH was recognized as one of the best 100 places in Kentucky to work. McKee says “I was honored to have the Harrison County Homemakers visit me on Thursday, March 3. What a good day. We have a very beautiful state capitol of which we can all be proud. I hope the tour was informative as the visit to the committee meeting and the House Chamber where you were able to observe your Legislature at work.”
He goes on to say “the work of extension is so important for all our citizens. We are so fortunate to have you, Gary and Bill, doing the outstanding jobs that you do. Thank you for your service.”
McKee is very complimentary of the contributions of Extension Homemakers to our community.
