The Maine State Junior Grange met on May 4 in Augusta. Before the meeting the Junior Grangers worked on pages for the scrapbook contest. Bobby Faulkner did an excellent job filling the Master’s chair. Mia and Cameron Rae became Jr. Grangers by obligation and were put right to work as Lady Assistant and Steward. Thank you to the committee members and subordinate Grangers who helped with the meeting.
Preparations for Junior Grange Camp are underway. Camp will be held Saturday-Sunday, July 6-7 at South Sangerville Grange and is open to all youngsters 5-14 yrs. old. If a child is not yet a Junior Grange member, we will be conducting the degree work during the weekend. Other activities planned include crafts, ritual instruction, community service and other fun activities. Camp registration forms are available on the Maine State Grange website (Junior Program Resources) or from the Junior Director (293 E. Neck Rd., Nobleboro 04555-8608). Detailed information will be sent on receipt of registration, or contact me.
The 2013 Maine State Junior Grange program, the National Jr. Grange program and the flyer for the Memorial Bricks are posted on the state grange website. Memorial bricks ordered during the fall and spring have arrived and been placed in the garden. Additional bricks may be ordered at any time.
