Family and Community Education Events

Adams County Family & Community Education Clubs

Adams County Family & Community Education (FCE) was founded as extension clubs in Adams County, meeting in local homes in the 1920's. Members meet to learn, do social activities, take on new interests and better our local community. We support the Adams County Spelling Contest, book distribution at the county fair, the 2nd grade Environmental poster contest, the 3rd and 5th grade writing contests and two $500 scholarships to an Adams County graduating High School Senior. Adams County FCE donates generously to the community from profits earned from the FCE Food Booth at the County Fair. We welcome interested people to contact the Extension Office for further information.
