The FHA, a non-profit organiza- tion, is composed of students en- rolled in the secondary school who have taken a homemaking course in junior or senior high school. Membership is voluntary. Main goal of the FHA is learn- ing to live better today in order that the FHA members' lives and those of their familes may be bet- ter tomorrow. FHA members work on projects which contribute to better family living. These include caring for children at home and for pay, tak- ing more home responsibilities, and initiating family fun nights and family councils. Among the activities carried out by the Sundance FHA is a year book for each member which in- i cluded meeting dates, program, committees, social events and mon- ey-making ideas for each month. Harriet Harvey is in charge of the program this year. Other activities include a co-ed ball, a Harvest Moon ball, in con- junction with the FFA, and a Sweetheart ball, all annual affairs. The chapter also makes trips to district and state meetings and visits neighboring chapters. FHA girls also sell lilies during the Crippled Childrens' drive for funds, and give a program for the PTA. In the way of money-making ideas, the local FHA girls hold bake and candy sales, hold parties and raffles and sell license plate booklets. As a final accomplishment, the club purchases something needed for the homemaking room. Since the program was started two years ago, the girls have added an elec- tric clock and draw drapes for the two main windows. --Commercial Club Tonight----- Navy l ecruit Chief To Take Enlistments In Sundance Nov. 10 Chief Henry G.
