By Terri Fassio, Public Relations Co-Director

  SEPTEMBER 29, 2013 --

The 129th Annual Session of the Connecticut State Grange will be held Thursday through Saturday, October 17-19, at the Holiday Inn Norwich, 10 Laura Blvd., Norwich, CT.

Representing each of the over 50 Community Granges across the state will be delegates to the Convention to debate resolutions and policies on subjects ranging from bicycle safety to credit card surcharges to elder abuse. The delegates will also work on resolutions dealing with a variety of internal Grange organizational topics.

Resolutions passed at the session will become policy of the Grange and will be lobbied for by the Connecticut State Grange Legislative Committee at the Connecticut State Legislature. Those resolutions pertaining to national policies will be sent to the National Grange Convention, to be held this November in Manchester, New Hampshire, where delegates from Granges across the country will consider them.

The Connecticut State Grange is pleased to welcome Christine and Duane Hamp as the National Representatives to the 129th State Session. Christine currently holds the office of National Grange Pomona and Duane is President of the Washington State Grange. 

During the Convention, awards and recognitions will be presented to Community Granges and individual members for achievements over the past year in a wide variety of categories including agriculture, membership, public relations, and community service.  Scholarships will also be presented.
