The yard sale held in June was a huge success! Even though it rained when we were first opening the doors and setting up, it didn’t seem to dampen sales. We raised $660.00 and donated $30.00 to the each of the scholarship funds of the Maine State Grange. There are so many to people to thank, that I would be afraid to leave someone out, you know who you are and your help was greatly appreciated. Thank you notes will be coming in the near future. When the State Grange gets closer to selling the headquarters building in Augusta, we will be having another yard sale to sell some the contents of the building that have been acquiring for the past 50 years.
With the yard sale being over the fundraising committee has completed its two major fundraisers for the year, but the work is not over by a long shot. We still have our Agricultural Pride T-Shirts for $12, Grange car magnets for $3.00 and candy bars, pins, bracelets, and keychains. The cookbooks will be ready for State Grange, and I know everyone is going to enjoy them. We are also working on a few other projects, which we will be announcing soon.
