Phillipy is currently president of the Willing and Able Club.
“Not as able as we used to be,” she joked, adding that the club currently has eight members.
Butts agreed, adding she’d like to see the association recruit younger members.
A lot has changed now that it’s been a century since Purdue University started sending agents out to Indiana counties to teach women about home preservation, creating the Indiana Extension Homemakers Association.
Stevens said she hopes to preserve the association’s presence in Cass by continuing to invite her friends to join.
“Getting friends is the best way,” she said.
