Notice from CT State Grange President George Russell on Meetings

By George Russell, CT State Grange President

  September 2, 2020 --

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

I hope this letter finds you all healthy and doing well!  It has been long and difficult as COVID-19 has dragged  on for the last six months, shutting down our Grange meetings and activities.

Since the middle of March, we have been unable to meet face-to-face at our Grange Halls.  Initially, the Governor limited social gatherings to five people inside.  He later increased this number in Phase 2 to 25 people inside and 100 outside where it remains today.  At this number it is possible for our smaller Granges to meet face-to-face.  You still have the option of meeting on Zoom.  Several of our Granges in the state have already started meeting or plan to meet starting in September.  I would like to see 100% of our Granges meeting within this next month either face-to-face or virtually.

If your Grange is planning to meet in person you need to take the following precautions:

1)  Keep social distancing to at least 6 feet apart.

2)  All members/attendees should wear masks

3)  Have hand sanitizer available

4)  Sanitize all surfaces that are touched (i.e. door handles, chairs, tables, etc.)

5)  For the time being, please do not serve refreshments

I would encourage Granges that wish to continue meeting virtually, to continue doing so.  To set-up a Zoom meeting please contact our Membership Director, Faith Quinlan at 518-698-2785 or email her at membership@ctstategrange.org.

Let’s work together and see if we can get our Granges meeting and planning for the future.


George Russell, Master
