Here are my My home greeters. They will be welcoming my guests tomorrow as they enter my home. I came across the Mary Janes Farmgirls Connection on line when I moved to Oregon. I started my own chapter, because there was none here in my town. Saturday I am hosting a "Klamath Falls Charming Chicks" Meeting and Luncheon. We are a chapter of the MaryJanes Farm Girls. You can learn more about her organization by clicking on the side bar picture of her.
Our chapter started with 2 members almost 3 years ago. We have been growing and now have 14 members and rumor has it there may be 3 more coming to our November Luncheon meeting. One of our chapter projects will be adopting two needy families for Thanksgiving and we will adopt a family for Christmas in our community. We hope to do more in our community as we grow. .
Being a farm girl is a "condition of the heart". We all love country things and try our best to live a sustainable life. Reducing, reusing and recycling is one of our goals. Some of us enjoy sewing, quilting, knitting, crocheting, cooking, raising chickens & other animals, gardening, thrift store shopping and simply enjoy our families and friends. We can earn badges to wear for learning many new things if we want. (think of it as Girls scouts for grown ups.") It really is a fun to have a sense of belonging. We are one happy family offering support and a helping hand to each other. Many have no family living close and we fill that "sister role." Everyone should have a sister to share events and sad times with, don't you agree?
This month there are four of our members who are celebrating their birthdays and we will help them do that. We meet once a month for a meeting and sometimes just to connect and share what's of interest to us. We are just one of many chapters across the USA and even in Europe. Please go to MaryJanes website if you are interested in reading more about what "farmgirls" are doing. There is so much in learning from each other.We each have our own style, making us all unique and Special Sisters.
