Home and Community Education

The Green County Association for Home and Community Education (HCE) offers opportunities for learning in a social setting, sharing what we’ve learned, and caring to make a difference in our homes, communities and the world. We have several clubs and independent members throughout Green County active in making our communities a better place to live, work, and raise a family.

Interested in joining Green County HCE, either as a club member or an independent member? Please contact the Green County UW-Extension office at 608-328-9440.

The Homemaker’s Creed:

We, the Homemakers of Wisconsin, believe in the sanctity of the home, the cradle of character, blessed by motherly devotion and guarded by fatherly protection.
We pledge ourselves:
To work for the preservation and improvement of home and community life;
To strive for healthier minds and bodies and better living;
To promote the welfare of our boys and girls, the nation’s greatest asset;
To be true to God and country and of lasting service to our homes and communities.

-Mrs. John Meise, Sauk County

The Prayer Creed:

Dear God, give us the grace to see the blessings which have come from Thee;
Give us the strength to do our duty, to see in everything some beauty.
Teach us that love and cheerful giving, tolerance and decent living,
Make our home a place sublime, where there’s no room for hate or crime.
A place where good friends gather round, where laughter, mirth and cheer abound.
Not selfish thoughts, not worldly greed. Let this, Dear Master, be our Creed.

-Mrs. James M. Hutton, St. Croix County
