By Terri Fassio, Public Relations Co-Director

  NOVEMBER 7, 2013 --

The Connecticut State Grange Public Relations Committee offered 7 Contests in 2013.  We would like to thank all of the Granges for participating in the contests and increasing their public awareness over this past year.  Let’s see these numbers increase for 2014!

1.)  Creative Video Contest - Granges were asked to submit a video promoting their Grange.  There were no entries received for this contest this year.

2.)  CT State Grange Website Participation Contest - Recognizes Granges who submitted information to be published on the CT State Grange website.

Granby, Redding, Southington, Glastonbury, Wallingford, Cawasa, Senexet, Whigville, Eureka, Harmony Taghhannuck, Beacon Valley, Killingly, Bethlehem, Higganum, Greenfield Hill, North Stonington, Prospect, Norfield, Lyme, Enfield, Cannon, Bridgewater, Norwich, Wolcott, Oxford, Simsbury, Groton.

President’s Award Certificate:  Taghhannuck Grange No. 100

Where both Bob and myself handle the publicity for Meriden and Winchester, we felt it was not fair to judge our Granges along with the others.  So Special Recognition Certificates will be awarded to Meriden and Winchester. 

3.)  Grange Marketing Contest - Granges were asked to create a booklet highlighting the ways they promote themselves to the public.

There were no entries received for this contest this year.

4.)  Best Grange-written Press Release Contest - Entries were to be an ACTUAL press release written and used by each Grange.  Winner: Meriden Grange No. 29

With all of the wonderful articles written by newspapers about Connecticut Granges, it is sad that we had only one entry in this category.  Winner:   Hillstown Grange No. 87
