|APRIL 22, 2012 --
To initiate our public service project for 2012, Oxford Grange #194 invites the public as well as interested Grangers to its Annual Open House meeting to be held Friday, May 4th at 7:30 PM at the Grange Hall at 482 Oxford Rd (CT Route 67). The meeting is the kick-off of the 2012 State Grange Agricultural Committee program to grow spaghetti squash to be donated to the Connecticut Food Bank and local soup kitchens.
The Grange, for the 2nd year in a row, will be partnering with the Ellis Clark Vo-Ag teacher Sarah LaRose and her students at Nonewaug High School in this project. We also wish to involve as many local citizens and Granges who want become involved in growing as much food as possible to help feed our less fortunate Americans who utilize local food banks and soup kitchens.
Seeds and planting materials will be provided to attendees who wish to be a part of our program. The squash grown will be collected at a Fall-time Harvest Celebration Program at a date to be announced.
