The Harlan County Extension Homemakers held their 80th annual meeting at the Harlan County Extension Depot on Thursday where the theme was “50s At the Sock Hop.” A lot of the homemakers and their guests dressed in their 1950s outfits for the event.

Harlan County Extension employee Sherry Thomas is pictured in her poodle skirt dancing to the 1950s tunes from an old juke box, which provided music for the homemakers event.

Homemakers guest Robert Haley, 66, of Catrons Creek, and his grandson, Dylan Seals, 8, also of Catrons Creek, enjoyed the “50s At the Sock Hop” event dressed as the old television character “the Fonz” from the show “Happy Days.”

Approximately 150 people attended the 80th annual Harlan County Homemakers meeting on Thursday where they enjoyed fun, food and door prizes.

Those attending the homemakers event enjoyed a large array of food. Helping serve for the event were volunteers, homemakers and employees of Lou’s Kountry Kitchen, in Harlan.
