What is going on in your Grange? Hopefully there are fundraisers, suppers, and other community activities going on. Are you involving non-grangers to help take part in your activity? If the answer is yes, you are doing great! As I check the website for activities, it seems more and more Granges are advertising their activities.
I do have a list of all the agricultural fairs and whether there are Grange membership booths set up or not and also if the fair would accommodate one. If you are interested in manning or setting up a membership booth at a local fair that does not have one, please let the Membership Committee know. This would be a great project for members “ looking for something to do” to promote our beloved Grange. Thank you Agnes and Bob Nelson, Agriculture Directors, for the list. Clinton Fair, New Portland Fair, and Piscataquis Fair currently do not have a table set up. Clinton and New Portland would be willing to do so. Also Cumberland Fair would also like a table but would not necessarily be manned. Fryeburg Fair needs more fillers for the display. The CWA Committee and the Agriculture Committee are working on displays. Maybe some other committees would like to help with the rest of the booth? Other fairs that do not have a State Grange booth set up are Waterford, Pittston, Northern Maine, Topsham, Acton, Springfield, Litchfield and Harmony. Materials such as applications, pens and a display board would be available for the table. If you are looking for new members, why not give it a shot?
