Farmerettes to sing as they celebrate 41st anniversary Forty one years ago a musical in- stitution was born to Nuckolls County. A group of six women, all farmers' wives or wives whose husbands worked in agriculture related business, met once a month and called them- selves the Cadams Club. Their club was one of several extension clubs that met to fellowship as farm wives. Once a year The Nuckolls County Exten- sion would host a countywide tea for all of the extension clubs. In the spring of 1961, the Cadams Club was asked to provide the entertainment for that year's tea. It was decided they would perform some musical numbers as their entertainment. Directed by Katherine Houtwed, the six performed at the tea and discovered it to be so much fun they continued to sing to- gether. After a short while, their num- bers grew and the Farmerettes musical career was launched under the direc- tion of Jeanne Edwards. Current director, Heral Jean Schultz, speaks fondly of the group, "We've been together so long that we're all like sisters to each other. We've had members come and go, leave for a period of time and come back to us. Three of us were here in the beginning;In the be'e'were exclusively farm wives but as our group grew our membership require- ments became less stringent. If you knew what a cow was, you were 'in'." Schultz continued, "Back then we were a small enough group we were able to meet for practices in each oth- ers' homes. We arranged for a babysitter for the pianist and the direc- tor since they were the ones with small children at that time. Eventually most of us became mothers. Since we were stay-at-home morns, on practice day, we'd just bring our children along. They'd play while we sang. The young- sters had a ball!" Throughout their 41 years of singing the group has raised 65 children collectively, become grandmothers to 105 grandchildren and now are great-grandmothers to nine great-grandchildren. The Farmerettes have continued to perform at community and organiza- tional functions since that spring in 1961. They have welcomed new mem- bers and have said goodbye to bthers. This season, the group consists of 19 women, a director and a pianist resid- ing in Belleville and Republic, as well as Ruskin, Hardy, Oak, Carleton, Guide Rock, Lawrence, Bostwick, Nelson, Nora and Superior. Because of the group s szze, practzces are now held at the Fellowship Hall at the Superior First Presbyterian Church. Their repetoire spans a range of music style from patriotic and religious to show tunes and pop. They rehearse twice a month during the school year and take summers off. The Farmerettes will perform on Saturday, at 8 p.m. at the Superior Church of Christ and Sunday, at 3 p.m. at the Ruskin Bethany Lutheran Church in honor of their 41 st anniver- sary. They were supposed to hold this perlbrmance last spring. However, Schultz had a broken leg and wasn't able to take an active part in the prac- tices so the group decided to postpone the concert until this year. Schultz said about the postponed performance, "After they decided to postpone the concert, following a prac- tice in May, and I was housebound with my injury, they came to my home and perlbrmed a 'private' concert just for me. It was a wonderful gift." The members also took turns see- ing that food was provided for Schultz'household during her recov- ery pericl. , Health Insurance Cost Effective Affordable For The Self-Employed For NPPD Board Paid For By Committee to elect Ken Kunz I It's Almost Planting Time/ x \\; tS.
