Master Vicki is pleased to announce that Sister Claire Logan, Ceres of the National Grange and her husband Steve Logan, Past Master of the RI State Grange, will be our National Rep and guest at State Grange Convention in October. Claire was elected National Ceres in 2013 in Manchester, NH. She is a committee member of the Washington County Fair and a Certified Food Safety Manager of the Pomona kitchen which not only runs during the five days of fair but is open for many special events all summer long. She is lovingly referred to by her family and others as the “food police” because she is always asking “did you wash your hands”, “where are your gloves”, “put a hat on”, etc. She enjoys cooking, baking, sewing and crafts and definitely camping. But most of all she enjoys spending as much time with her grandchildren as she can.
Claire will be present throughout the conference and will address the body on Friday evening before conferral of the Sixth Degree. In making the announcement, Master Vick said, “Claire and Steve are inspirational Grangers and the Grange is at their core. Along with family, which we all know is a big part of the Grange, they make Grange a priority. They love to meet and talk with people, are good listeners and are comfortable with offering other strategies and ‘thinking outside the box.’”
