Somerset County Cooperative Extension Homemakers, partners with the University of Maine Cooperative Extension, extend adult education into home and community in the areas of food safety, nutrition and health, gardening, cultural and creative arts, financial planning and going green. Individual groups have community service projects for veterans, families in need, food cupboards, shelters and fundraising for various charities, according to a news release from the Extension Homemakers. The Maine state project is “Blast from the Past.” Somerset County has the 1920’s decade.
