Bricks support ECA Clubs
Was your mother, grandmother, aunt or sister a member of a Home Demonstration Club or ECA? Honor her with a lasting legacy.
To celebrate the Centennial of the Extension & Community Association, the NCECA Foundation is selling commemorative bricks that will be placed in the Dr. Jane S. McKimmon Garden on the N.C. State Campus. McKimmon first organized Home Demonstration Clubs (now called ECA Clubs) in 1913; these clubs later raised money to help build the McKimmon Center in her honor, where the garden is located.
Bricks measuring 4x8 are available for donation of $100; bricks measuring 8x8 are $500. Bricks will be printed with a special message and this donation is 100 percent tax deductible. Make donatations by March 1.
For information or to receive an order form, call Jayne McBurney, 919-989-5380 at Johnston County Cooperative Extension.
