Hello Grange Brothers and Sisters,
Hopefully by now everyone has had their fill of snow and rain, for those that have tried contacting me for the last two months, I apologize for not being available as Mike and I bought a new home and it took almost two months to get an address, phone and mail it is was very surprising how quickly one can be out of touch.
I would like to mention that there will be a yard sale at State Grange on Saturday, June 24, 2017. CWA will be having a table with many new Craft Kits plus baked goods if anyone would like to donate any items, they can either call me or a Committee Member or drop them off at State Grange as long as you call first.
As in previous years,any Grange or person that makes a ten dollar donation to the New England Grange Building, House in the Woods, State Grange or Maine Children’s Home for Little Wanderers will receive a Certificate signed by the State Master and the CWA Director if you choose to send your donation directly to the organization ,that is fine but a certificate will not be sent.
I am enclosing all of the information received from National Grange about the Quilt Contest if you would like to bring the finished block and /or any other entries to State Session in October with the submission form attached then I will mail them the following Monday please be sure and read the directions thoroughly as they have included information for 2016 that I did not know about their are also different age groups included.
I’m not sure if everyone is aware that we have Certificates of Appreciation to be given to non-members for any items that they make for any of the Organizations that we support. The certificates were designed by Laurie McBumie of Nobleboro.
Enjoy your summer, I look forward to seeing you at the Conference on August 26th.
