Homesteaders Of Cotton County Celebrate 100 years

By Cleeta Gammill

In 1917, six women from the Ahpeatone Community met and formed a club. They called this club the Homesteaders because that was the criteria to belong to this club. You must be a homesteader on your land. These ladies met once a month in each other’s homes. They learned from each other to knit, crochet, sew all clothing, can, cook, and make soap when butchering time came. I’m sure there were many lessons learned from each other.

In 1935, the Extension services in Stillwater, OK started a club or group calling it Oklahoma Home Demonstration Club. The Homesteaders, along with Homesteaders Of Cotton County Celebrate 100 years By Cleeta Gammill many other groups in Cotton County, joined. All kinds of lessons and information were sent from Oklahoma State University’s Extension Services and then taught to leaders in the local clubs.

College students should budget, too

By Leilana McKindra

STILLWATER, Okla. – It is true, college students are not known for having a lot of money, but that does not take away the need for a budget. In fact, it may be even more important to know how much is coming in and going out of the bank account.

No matter a person’s age, building a budget is generally the same: Income minus expenses equals the amount that can be saved or spent on extras. However, having a plan and working that plan can help students better manage their often limited funds.
