The Lindale Extension Education Club captured Club of the Year honors during the recent Smith County Extension Education Association’s 33rd annual Achievement Day, which celebrates a year of work and dedication to the community, according to information from Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service.

For the past year, the Lindale club has participated in activities including the Chocolate Dessert Contest, the Creative Arts Building and the EEA station at AgriWorld at the East Texas State Fair, sewed bibs for nursing home residents and purchased candy and helped with Wings of Eagles, a Halloween party for special-needs children.

The Woman of the Year award went to Harriett Lane. She has been a Dixie EE member for nine years. She coordinated prize items for the Chocolate Dessert Contest, worked with 4-H’ers on proper table settings in a 4-H Foods Workshop, cut patterns, pinned, and ironed bibs for the nursing home bib project, helped 4-H’ers cut and pin patterns for their two-day sewing project and learned proper canning techniques and judged at the Yamboree.

The Scrap Book of the Year award went to the Dixie Extension Education Club.
