Swindle recognized as 50 year member of FCE Club

Congratulations to Doris Swindle. She is being recognized as a 50 year member of the Family Community Education Club in Decatur County (formerly called Home Demonstration Club). She grew up in a family that volunteered a lot and were very involved in community activities. Her mother, Nina Welch, was a wonderful homemaker. Mrs. Welch helped to organize the first Concord Home Demonstration Club in 1940. When Doris was born, she attended the meetings with her mother. She grew up attending the meetings and knowing all about the Home Demonstration Club. After marriage and her first child, Doris moved back to Decatur County and carried on the tradition by carrying her baby, Jennifer, to the meetings. Doris Swindle said, “That was 50 years ago. A lot has changed but I still enjoy monthly meetings which is now called the FCE Club.”
