As you are reading this, I just want to remind everyone that the conference will be coming up in a couple of weeks so please get your donations, entries, and reports sent in to avoid “the rush.” I will be collecting the squares for National Grange at the conference and also at state session in October. Make sure you have all the papers filled out that National wants plus fill in ALL the blanks on the labels for the conference as I do not remember the Grange or Pomona that each of you belongs to. Not trying to nag but just giving you a subtle reminder. Look forward to seeing each of you at the conference and your reaction to some of the changes that I have made. Take care, my friends.
