Title Scrapbook, Shakopee Home Makers Club
Dates of Creation 1979 - 1986
Scope & Content The Shakopee Home Makers Club began as the NOMA (Nite Out for Ma) Club and was formed in 1959 by local homemakers. The group met in the First National Bank Club Room at Shakopee. At their first meeting, they chose a name, elected officers and established a schedule and activities. They decided to meet every second Tuesday of the month at the bank club room with meetings to consist of a business meeting, lesson and light lunch.

The scrapbook has brown covers with tan pages. Embossed in gold on the front cover is a border design. It appears to have a double screw binding. The piece outlines each meeting - decisions they made about their club and lessons that were held. It also includes hand drawn illustrations, photographs, swatches and magazine cut outs. Samples of some of their lessons and programs include Irish history, cooking and recipes, and wine tasting. The group held picnics and banquets, had Christmas parties and travelled and toured buildings and museums together. This scrapbook records their meetings from 1986 - 2002. A white sticker adhered to the front of the piece has those dates written on it.
