Family and Community Education (FCE)

Please be patient as we update this page. Check back soon.

For more than a 100 years, a network of friends in communities in Wilson County have shared a common goal:

  • To learn through shared experiences
  • To improve home and community life
  • To strengthen adult education
  • To promote projects which enhance family and community life

Through our rich history, we have grown from small community clubs to a worldwide network focused growth through education.
