Summertime is upon us and we are busy with gardens, canning, fair exhibits and planning for the upcoming new Grange year.
- 990Ns- Please disregard any notice you may receive from the IRS advising that your 990N has not been filed. I have just finished up filing for this year.
- Quarterly Reports– I am receiving them daily and will now begin updating the membership records as well as the Roster Information. Please do not forget or neglect to send in the roster information. The only information I will be using this year will be what I receive from you so if you have not received a copy of this form, please contact me here at headquarters and I will see that you receive one.
- Donations- I am receiving donations for the Kelley Farm and as stated in a previous Bulletin I requested that donations to the Kelley Farm should be mailed directly to: National Grange, 1616 H Street, Washington DC 20006 with checks made payable to the Grange Foundation earmarked “Kelley Farm Fund” and donations to the CWA Committee should be sent to Karen Flagg whose address is 3 Jeanie Drive, Leeds ME. So please make sure your committee chairperson realizes they should be mailing donations to the correct place as indicated in the request letter. Donations for the Junior, Youth, and Agriculture Departments need to be mailed to State Grange Headquarters as they have been in the past.
- Resolutions– Due at State Grange Headquarters by August 15, 2017. Don’t miss the deadline!
Summer is the time to get ready for State Session in October. The Sessions are open to every Grange member. You can’t vote unless you are a delegate but you can witness the activities that are there.
Until next time have a safe and productive “Grange” summer.
