"Oklahoma Home and Community Education" comes to Lawton

Lawton_They're making southwest Oklahoma homes and communities better.

About 300 members of "Oklahoma Home and Community Education" were in Lawton Friday for their annual district meeting.

The event featured sessions about everything from cooking to composting to money management and taxes.

Members say developing family and life skills and educating Oklahomans about family and consumer issues has been OHCE's objective for almost 100 years.

"Now the purpose is just to increase their knowledge levels about all things, money management, health living, cooking, child rearing... Anything to help improve their lives,"said Kendra Piasecki, Comanche County OHCE

It doesn't stop with members.  OHCE offers thousands of dollars in college scholarships each year.
