CCHCE Craft Club will be named “Jean’s Craft Club” in honor of a long time CCHCE member (66 years), Jean Swaim, who was very talented with crafts and taught many crafts such as crochet, quilting, tole painting, ceramics, and many more. She always entered several projects in the Cultural Arts Day in different categories and several were voted to be sent to the IAHCE State Conference each year.
