MHV Newsletter - Tishomingo County

Awards Banquet

The annual awards banquet was held on Wednesday, February 26 at 11 AM at Taste Buds Cafe. Members were recognized and received certificates for meeting their 100% membership requirements, for their reading efforts, and for their years of service.

Cultural Arts Exhibits

Every year, cultural arts exhibits are sent to MHV State Council in May to be judged. These exhibits are very similar to fair exhibits. Each county can only send a limited number of exhibits. To be fair, our county has a cultural arts contest to choose which exhibits go on to State Council. Any member may participate in this contest. Exhibits are to be brought to the Extension Office by 12 PM on Wednesday, April 15. We will put a tag on them and they will be judged. They will then be on display at the Extension Office for public viewing. The list of categories was included in last month's newsletter. An exhibit must fit into one of the categories to be entered. The winning exhibits will stay at our office and will be taken to MSU during State Council. If you have questions about this contest, please call our office at 423-7016. We look forward to seeing your creativity. 

Scholarships Available

There are scholarships available through 4-H and MHV to graduating high school seniors. These scholarships have varying qualifications and have to be in the state office by April 1. If you have any questions or would like an application, please call our office at 423-7016. You may also find information at the following website: .

Devotion by Nancy Demoss Wolgemuth: "Every Woman Has a House"

“The wise woman builds her house, but with her own hands the foolish one tears hers down.” Proverbs 14:1

It doesn’t matter where you live. Spiritually speaking, every woman has some type of “house.” It might be your immediate family, your neighborhood, your workplace, your school, your church. In all these spheres of influence we can bless and build the lives of people around us.

I think John Angell James expressed this well when he wrote, “A community is not likely to be overthrown where a woman fulfills her mission. For by the power of her noble heart over the hearts of others, she will raise it from its ruins.”

Ask God to keep you from tearing down those around you and to help you build them up with your example and your words.
