Community Service Corner
Summer is just around the corner and hopefully with it the warmer weather. I hope everyone’s gardens are planted and everyone planted a few extra for donating to a local food pantry or neighbor who you know is not able to plant. We are getting closer and closer to another State Session and contest deadlines. Remember Community Service Books are due to me by August 15, 2017. The easiest way for me to receive them is to mail them directly to me: Christine Corliss, 162 Center Road, Lebanon, ME 04027. If you do not do a Community Service Book at least send in the Activity Sheet a copy can be printed from the Maine State Grange Website or you can email me directly at Christinecorlissymailcom (Christinecorlissymailcom) and I will forward one over to you.
Family, Health & Hearing
August is World Humanitarian Awareness Month, National Immunization Month, National Goat Cheese Month and Children’s Eye Health & Safety Month, just to name a few. Have a local farmer bring in Goat Cheese and discuss how it is made and its benefits vs processed cheese. Bring in a local person and open your Grange Hall to discuss the importance of immunizations in regards to the spread of diseases who have long since become almost dormant due to vaccinations.
No matter what you do bring awareness to your Grange, promote education to your community, and always have fun.
