For the first time ever, Joyce and Ellen visited the California Coast.  As guests of the CAFCS (Council of Administrators of Family and Consumer Sciences), Joyce presented her one woman show portraying the life of founder, Ellen Swallow Richards.  This was a special time for CAFCS as they celebrated their 50th Anniversary.  Fifty years ago, administrators decided they needed their own group to address the needs of home economics programs at the many varied institutions of higher education.  Through out this past fifty year history, this group has seen many changes in their programs. Today, there are over 150 higher education institutions offering programs in human ecology, human sciences, family and consumer sciences, just to name a few of the program titles.  Regardless of how the programs are formatted or how they are titled, the purposes remain the same:  to support individuals and families and provide research, education and outreach to strengthen communities through their families.

The lovely Humphrey’s Half Moon Inn and Suites was our location for the 50th Anniversary Celebration of CAFCS.

 

 

 

Since she was already scheduled to be in San Diego, Joyce contacted the AAFCS-SD Affiliate to see if they might also want to see a portrayal of founder, Ellen Richards.  They were agreeable and joined with HEHC-SD to meet for lunch featuring a program with our history and Joyce portraying Ellen.  Joyce also invited Purdue CFS Alumnae living in the greater San Diego area to join for lunch.  We had a great turn out and such rich conversations occurred during lunch.IMG_3723
