The Maine State Grange needs your help at the Big E. Maine is responsible for filling 18 work shifts in the New England Grange Building at this year’s fair. The dates Maine is responsible for are the first three days of the fair: September 15, 16, and 17. There are two shifts each day with three people required for each shift. The morning shift is 9:00 – 3:00 and the evening shift is 3:00 – 9:00. Two people are needed to work at check-out, one to run the cash register and one to bag the items. The third person will be at the quilt raffle table (here you are mostly sitting) asking shoppers if they would like to make a donation and receive a chance on the quilt. This year’s quilt is being made by Vermont and the funds raised will be donated to Dodge House in Rutland. Dodge House is a place that Veterans can go and get any kind of help they may need. That could be a meal, a place to stay, help filling out paperwork and help

This year’s quilt is being made by Vermont and the funds raised will be donated to Dodge House in Rutland. Dodge House is a place that Veterans can go and get any kind of help they may need. That could be a meal, a place to stay, help filling out paperwork and help getting assistance. They are there for the Veterans.

If you are interested in volunteering to work in the New England Grange Building please contact me at Granger1atmainedotrrdotcom  (Granger1atmainedotrrdotcom)   or 207-699-2830, I am coordinating the volunteers for Maine. Deadline is June 30, 2017, as information needs to be forwarded to the Store Managers. Please make your plans now and let me know A.S.A.P.

We also need volunteers to walk in the parade on Grange Day, Sunday, September 24, 2017, at 5:00 p.m. every day. If you are interested in walking in the parade please contact me and I will explain the process for getting reimbursed the ticket fee for that day only.

Those making items to be sold in the store please contact State Grange Headquarters for collection options.

All help is greatly appreciated!
