Household Executive Extension Club recently honored a former member, Donna Schwerdtfeger, by placing a bench and display case in the entrance of the Women's Building on the Woods County Fairgrounds. The club was organized in 1960, and Donna joined about two years later. She was very active in various community fundraising projects and supporting a lot of other projects in Alva.

In 1981 she was elected vice-president of the Extension Homemakers of Oklahoma.

In 1984-1985 she was elected as the president of the Extension Homemakers of Oklahoma, a position she held for two years. She traveled all over the state speaking at conventions and meetings.

Donna passed away on Dec. 9, 2019.

On Tuesday, Sept. 7, family and friends met in the Women's Building to view the bench and the plaques she had received that are now on display.
