Community Service Corner

I hope everyone is staying warm and had a wonderful and safe holiday season.  I want to welcome Anne Staples and Holly Welch to the Community Service/Family, Health & Hearing Committee. They will be a great addition.  If you need help in Penobscot Area please feel free to contact Anne Staples, in the Cumberland and Oxford Union Area please contact Holly Welch, in the York County area or anywhere else in the State please feel free to contact me.  Community Service would like to have individuals from several other areas join our team so that we can get the word out in person when needed.  Community Service will be hosting a few workshops over the year in different areas to talk about CS Books, Family, Health & Hearing Contest, “officer” of the year nominations and the Committee itself.  We are hoping to make this an interactive workshop with fun, laughs, and information.  Our first workshop will be held March 24, 2018, in the York County Area at Riverside Grange from 11 am to 1 pm.

Family, Health & Hearing

February is upon us sooner than we think, time to bring February Awareness to your Grange.  February is American Heart Month, National Children’s Dental Health Month, February 13 – 19 is Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy Awareness and February 14 is National Donor Day.  Please check out the American Heart Website for Little Hats Big Hearts Program.  http://www.heart.org/HEARTORG/Affiliate/Little-Hats-Big-Hearts_UCM_487734_SubHomePage.jsp. Please copy and paste this address into your URL. It will bring you right to the information.  Anyone who knits or crochets can send some to them.  Please take the time to participate. Just be sure to include your Grange and State name when sending them in.  Take a picture and include in your CS Book.

Let’s make a difference one project at a time.

  1. Great column, Chris! Very helpful and informational! In my opinion, the Community Service and Family, Health & Hearing Committee is one of the most important committees of the MSG! After all, helping people in our community and taking care of our mental and physical health is what the Grange is all about! You do an admirable job as head of this committee, Chris! Keep up the good work!
