Moore County was well represented this year at the State fce Conference. County Agent Brenda Hannah, out-going Lois Club president Norma Stone, JoyLea Robertson and Eileen Horton attended the event which was held in Chattanooga, Nov. 2-5.

Central Region winners in Cultural Arts, Fashion Review and Creative Writing competed for State honors. Norma Stone finished in second place in Cultural Arts for machine embroidered flour sack dishcloths.

In the Fashion Review, Stone placed first in children’s clothing; first for a decorated sweatshirt; first for a recycled item; and second place for an adult wedding dress.

June Pugh placed second in the Creating Writing Feature Article category for an article in The Moore County News regarding the local Quilt Trail.

Horton related that Moore County members reported 2,500 volunteer hours for 2014, which represents an approximate savings to the County of $55,000, based on the national average of $22 per hour.

For the first time in 20 years, Horton is not serving as a region or state officer. She is, however, the in-coming Lois Club president and will coordinate the 2016 State Conference. The 2015 State Conference will be in Clarksville, hosted by the Western Region.
