The Merry Circle was a home demonstration club formed in the 1900s supporting rural farm women by sharing knowledge with them about improving practices and health. These clubs were often supported by the local or state government because they worked with other local clubs and schools to benefit their community. The lamp is used as a common symbol for knowledge and is used to advocate for education, which the home demonstration clubs often brought to rural communities.
