MAYSVILLE -- Members of the Maysville Extension Homemakers Club met at the community building for the January meeting. Jane Wilber, the hostess for the meal, prepared a big pot of chili and everyone brought dishes to accompany it.
Jane extended a welcome to everyone present at the club meeting. Melinda Crawley led the group in singing "Clementine" and gave inspirational readings entitled "Safe in the Father's Keeping" and "Recipe."
Jane gave a timely lesson on making a home more energy efficient. An energy audit or assessment is recommended to help determine how much energy a home uses, where it is losing energy and which problem areas and fixes should be prioritized to make a home more efficient and comfortable. Energy audits are available from private firms or utility companies, but a person can conduct a basic home energy audit. Additional information can be obtained through the County Extension Office, as well as on the web. Jane also covered the February lesson on cooking for one or two.
Melinda gave a helpful tip to warm a cold room by setting a fan in the cold room and blowing air towards the warmer room.
