July News From Ekonk Community Grange

By Sue Gray

  JULY 1, 2016 --

Our very active Junior Grange will meet at 6 p.m. Friday, July 1st. The boys will provide a fun program! Over $900.00 was donated to Kaycee Chesters and family from two fundraisers spearheaded by our Juniors. Kaycee, 10, is in the 5th grade at Sterling Community School and is battling cancer. Kaycee has returned to school, has a prosthetic leg, and is jumping rope! She is one brave little girl! She has also become a Junior Granger! Hurray!

July 4th our regular meeting is cancelled due to the Holiday, so we will hold our monthly meeting on Monday, July 18th. Appropriately, the program theme is, “Happy Birthday, America!” On July 16th, beginning at 5:00 p.m., we will hold our annual Blueberry Supper. The meat featured will be baked stuffed chicken breast, mashed potatoes, fresh seasonal garden vegetables, rolls and butter and blueberry crisp (from native berries), topped with real whipped cream! Adults $12.00, children 12 and under, $6.00 and preschoolers admitted for free. As with all suppers at our Grange, please bring non-perishable food item(s) for distribution to Sterling families in need. Ekonk Hill Turkey Farm generously donated a gift certificate for each Grange event and a lucky winner is drawn (from among those bringing items) at each event. Our hall is handicapped accessible and located at 723 Ekonk Hill Road, Sterling, CT. August 1st we meet again (program “Fairs, Fairs, Fairs!”) 7:30 p.m. meeting time--all welcome!

The Juniors meet August 5th (“program “Getting Ready for the Fair!”). Then on Sat., August 13th, we hold our 34th Community Grange Fair! This year the local Fire Departments have agreed to participate as well as the Scouts! We will also be entertained by “Animal Experiences” with a variety of hands-on animals. As always, great food in the Grange kitchen! Everyone is welcome to bring entries Friday, August 12th 3-6 p.m. The Fair runs from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. Questions on the Fair, call President, Link Cooper 860- 564-1821. Our Grange will have a booth at Brooklyn Fair August 25th-28th—stop by and say hello (and enjoy our food too)!
