Greetings and Happy New Year! From the fundraising committee of the Maine State Grange.
Many thanks for all of your help in making last year a very successful one for us and for you, as we are contributing to the future of the Maine State Grange.
Another Grange year has begun and we are busy making plans and talking over ideas for this year’s fundraisers. Our first event of the year will be the annual variety show, which has become more popular each year. The show will be held at Topsham Grange #37, 47 Pleasant Street, Topsham on Sunday, April 29, 2018, at 3:00 pm (note the change in the day of the week and the time). As always, we are looking for family-friendly acts to participate at this event. Acts in the past have included musical numbers, humorous stories, jokes, skits and singing (including a performance by the Grange Singers!). This year we are hoping to include some other acts, such as dancing (tap, clogging etc.). So, if you know someone in your area who would like to showcase their talents, please let us know. Participants do not have to be Grange members and will have approximately five minutes to perform. For more information contact me at 998-2586 or email me.
If you have any fundraising ideas you’d like to share please send them to a committee member. On-going items for sale include Grange cookbooks ($5 each or two or more $4 each), Agricultural Pride t-shirts ($12 each), Grange pens; with flashlight and stylus! ($1 each) and Grange magnets ($3 each).
Until next month, stay warm and safe!
