The Parksville Homemaker Club started in 1922, according to records in Boyle County. It and the Junction City Club are the oldest homemaker clubs in the county. Current members know some of the charter women who were active in the original club.
The daughters of at least two of the charter women still are active in the club. Three sisters are members today, one of whom is now 102 years old. The club also boasts a third-generation homemaker.
Most of the members remember what a treat it was for them when their mothers were having the club meeting in their homes. It meant goodies after the ladies left. Of course, it also meant a lot of work to get ready for the meeting, but the rewards always were worth it.
Current officers are: President Mary Guerrant; Vice President Debbie Morris; Secretary Shirley Honaker; and Treasurer Lois Frondal.
