The Cooperettes originated as a young women€™s community organization.  In the early years, they were associated with the national Jayceettes but now the club is strictly local.

The Cooperettes organized around eight years ago, and present membership is around eight members.  They meet once a month in members' homes.  Cecelia Fritz is president and Lana Douville is secretary at the present time.

The Cooperettes assist the community in many projects.  Some of these projects are as follows: School - playground equipment, two riding horses at elementary playground; a bulletin board at the elementary school for listing of current events; supplies such as tagboard, etc.  Assist County Health Nurse at the Pre-school Vision and Hearing Screening and also the Weight and Measurement Clinic.

They assist the Jaycees when they need help such as the "haunted house" during Halloween.  They made a quilt for the Girls Scouts to raffle off.  They have had style shows, and also assisted in drives for the swimming pool such as "Splash" and "Smash" events.  The last three years, the Cooperettes have also held a Christmas bazaar at the Coachman Inn.
