HCE Meetings are open to any member to attend and contribute; however, only board members may vote on issues. The county board members meet monthly at the Polk County Government Center in Balsam Lake the third Monday of each month at 5 pm. The Polk County Family Living Agent, the advisor, attends the board meetings.
Some of the county activities that all clubs can take part in are:
- Support Our Troops - Sending ‘care package’ to service person known by someone in their club
- Polk County Girls Group (Services of Love Project) – HCE ladies teach/demo special crafts and/or outings.
- Wisconsin Bookworms - Providing early literacy programming for Wisconsin children. Wisconsin Bookworms in Polk County serves over 100 Head Start children. Four volunteer readers dedicate time from their schedules to share their love of reading to Polk County’s children. In addition, Polk County’s WAHCE organization raises funds to purchase the book sets each child received.
