Barbara Kramer has been in Kuntry Klub for more than 65 years. She started in the group because her mother-in-law was a member. “I did the driving,” Kramer quipped. “I brought her and have been here ever since.” Kuntry Klub started as a local chapter of EHU, which, as Denise Rodgers puts it, “to me it’s like adult 4-H,” she said.

The current group still carries on the tradition of sharing new activities.
