Mississippi Homemaker Volunteers host workshops
MISSISSIPPI STATE – This year’s Mississippi Homemaker Volunteers State Council conference will provide attendees with four days of hands-on workshops and educational events.
The May 15-19 “MHV Celebrates MSU” conference will be held at Mississippi State University’s main campus. Registration is $20 for the four-day event. Housing in Griffis Residence Hall is available for an additional fee. The conference is not only open to MHV volunteers but also to the general public.
Attendees can participate in workshops on digital photo editing, stained glass making, tabletop gardening, woodworking and embroidery. MSU tours will be available, including one of the College of Veterinary Medicine. The event will also host a fashion review, a cultural arts exhibit of items made by MHV members and a silent auction.
“The event is going to be educational and fun,” said MHV president Kaye Bales. “It provides the perfect opportunity to fellowship and make friends with people across the state.”
Last year’s conference was attended by more than 200 people. Registration begins on March 15 and continues until April 15. Call the local county Extension office to register.
