Around The Grange
October 2018 News from North Stonington Community Grange No. 138

Oct. 12: Perpetual Motion, Legislative Program

Oct. 26: Invisible Motion, Halloween Party, 7:30 P.M.

We are most happy to announce that Debbie Barnes is back with us at meetings. She is recuperating at home and getting around very well in her wheelchair. Jeff says she is making progress every day.

The dog days of summer have kept our attendance down. The upstairs hall is at least 20 degrees hotter than the downstairs one and the downstairs is sweltering. The ladies had the program the first meeting in August. We had some wonderful piano solos, songs with the ukulele, and a hilarious reading on how a good housewife should behave in 1955. We 2018 ladies took exception to many of the suggestions. The story of Rincerella also had us in stitches. The men entertained us on August 24. There were jokes, a history of sword dancing, information on the history of our Grange and town, and Jeff gave Jason a haircut with scissors, grass clippers and hedge clippers while keeping us laughing with his That’s Good/That’s Bad story.

Please bring the children to our annual Halloween Party. Prizes for costumes and games. Party starts at 7:30. And if those elusive katydids will just start singing, next time we will tell you all about sweet September.
