Biographical/Historical note

The Women's Auxiliary of the Washington Wool Growers Association was founded in 1923 to bring together wives of members of the association, and over time the membership was broadened to include women interested in the industries and activities represented in the association. Promoting sheep products with a variety of activities and events, the group sponsors "Make It Yourself with Wool," an annual sewing contest, and raises funds for its activities with a Lamburger booth at the Central Washington Fair. They support agricultural education and training for youth, including 4-H and Future Farmers of America members involved in projects related to sheep and wool.
