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. 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:
- (Services of Love Project) – CRA, Northwoods, Serenity House .
- Wisconsin Bookworms – Providing early literacy programming for Wisconsin children. Wisconsin Bookworms in Polk County serves 100 Head Start children. Two 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.
If you would like to join a HCE club or start your own club in your area, please contact one of the following chairmen or the Polk County Extension Office at the Government Center at 715-485-8600.
