We will have the 2018 Maine State Grange post-secondary Agricultural Scholarship forms ready and available at the Agricultural Trade Show this year. They will also be posted on the website and sent to all schools after the New Year.
Save March 13, 2018, on your calendar. This is the date for the Legislative Agricultural Luncheon. More information will be sent out after the New Year. We will be looking for fudge to take into the Hall of Flags with our display, pies to serve the Senators and Representatives and individuals to help serve the meal.
We are revising the Maine State Grange Farmer of the Year criteria and this information will be available after the New Year both on the website and sent out to Granges. We encourage you to start thinking about individuals deserving of this award. They do not need to be Grangers (new criteria in 2018), but preference will be given if we do have a Grange member.
