We, the Homemakers of Wisconsin, believe in the sanctity of the HOME, the cradle of character, blessed by motherly devotion and guarded by fatherly protection.
We pledge ourselves:
To work for the preservation and improvement of home and community life; To strive for healthier minds and bodies and better living; To promote the welfare of our boys and girls, The nation’s greatest asset; To be true to God and country and of lasting service to our homes and communities. -Mrs. John Meise, Sauk County
Dear God, give us the grace to see, The blessings which have come from thee. Give us the strength to do our duty, To see in everything some beauty. Teach us that love and cheerful giving, Tolerance and decent living, Make of our home a place sublime, Where there’s no room for hate or crime, A place where good friends gather round, Where laughter, mirth and cheer abound, Not shelfish thoughts nor worldly greed, Let this dear Master, be our creed. -Mrs. James M. Hutton, St. Croix County
