June News from Prospect Grange

By Jean Meehan

  June 4, 2016 --

To celebrate Grange Month, Prospect Grange decided to sponsor an essay contest for the children in the Prospect Elementary School graded 3,4,5. This gives them the chance to use the dictionaries we donated to them over the years.

The essay contest subject would be “What I like about Prospect”. We were happy to receive a total of 77 entries. There will be three cash prizes given in each grade. They were judged by teachers from out of town schools.

Prospect Grange was proud to award the following students cash awards for their winning essays. Third grade winner was Gabriella Volpe from Mrs. Pannone’s class with second place going to Alexa Sweeney also from Mrs. Pannone’s class and Molly Nichols from Mrs. Caffrey’s class.  Fourth grade winner was Ava Muharem from Mr. Tuozzo’s class with second place going to Michael Belcher from Mrs. Caffrey’s class and third to Kyle Egan from Mr. Tuozzo’s class. The Fifth grade class winner was Kaitlyn Leonard from Mrs. Hart’s class with second going to Samantha Sharkey from Mrs. Hart’s class and third went to Timothy Sweeney also from Mrs. Hart’s class. They were given cash and a certificate. All other participants were given certificates of participation.

Prospect Grange was honored to present Robert Hiscox as the citizen of the year award for his many hours and years of volunteering his town to town committees and his flags along main street project and the maintenance of the flags. He is very involved with all things Prospect.

We were inspected by Deputy Fisher at our May meeting and had five entries in the Blueberry Muffin baking contest.

Our members made cars for each of the patients at the Regal Care Center. Each patient received either a car or truck, bus or van as a favor along with a sweet treat to celebrate May Day.
