Since Thanksgiving is quickly approaching I began to think how putting together your turkey dinner and a lecturer’s program are similar. First, you look around for the perfect turkey (theme), then you decide what side dishes (readings, skits, games) complement the turkey and finally you decide on dessert (closing thought). When you have finished all your preparations, you can enjoy your guests.

Each Subordinate Grange and Pomona has been given a copy of the 2017 – 2018 Lecturer’s Program Book, which outlines the contests for the coming year. Once you receive this please read it carefully, changes have been made to the categories in the writing and photo contests. A candlelight ceremony contest has also been added. As lecturers, I hope that you promote participation in these contests.

I want to thank the Lecturer’s Committee Members for all the hard work they did during the state session. I also want to welcome Sister Darlene Miles of Hudson Grange # 457 to the Lecturer’s Committee.
