Masks Of Love 2020

The Family and Community Education Club members in Bedford County have been busy making over 600 fabric masks for health care workers, trucking industry workers, friends, family, the Sheriff’s Department, church members, nursing home workers and more.

Through the Masks of Love program, masks are being sewn all over the state by FCE members, 4-Hers and other volunteers.

We thank you for supporting our community and keeping us safe!


  • Clubs can make their own decisions on whether to meet or wait.  If your club decides to cancel its meeting just follow the inclement weather policy below.  If you have questions, please feel free to call Whitney Danhof at 931-684-5971. 
  • Agent, Whitney Danhof, will be meeting with those clubs that do decide to meet. The February Program is on Wool Felting.
  • If school is canceled due to weather, we will not have any countywide event – individual clubs may make their own policy for inclement weather.  If your club is canceled for weather, count everyone present on your records and you do not have to make up that meeting.
