Adams County
Association for Home and Community Education
Adams County

About Us:

Established in 1918 the HCE organization has been thriving in Adams County for over 95 years.  Over the years lessons and interests have changed but our purpose of Home and Community Education is to disseminate information about topics that are interesting and vital to modern day women and families.  Members participate in many community projects.  In addition, social and "just for fun" activities are held and enjoyed by both members and guests.  Guests are always welcome at our monthly unit, book club and/or quilt club meetings.

Our current membership is 163, and divided between 10 units, 1 mailbox unit and 3 special interest groups (HCE Book Club, HCE Quilt League and HCE Card/Game Club).

Membership dues are $15.00 a year for an active member.  Come join us!
