December News from Ekonk Community Grange

By Sue Gray

  December 2, 2016 --

We draped our Charter in loving memory of Past President (1966-7), Robert A. Chamberland. A Navy veteran, Bob was proud to have been Marshall of both the Moosup VJ Day Parade and the Sterling Memorial Day Parade. His daughters are both Grangers at Ekonk.

December 3rd is our annual Christmas Bazaar from 10-2. Vendor spaces are sold out! It should be an outstanding event, with lots of great food available in our kitchen.

We are honored to host the National Grange Masters/Officers Conference

in February. Thanks to Link Cooper, we have new Anderson windows throughout our facility. These new windows should better keep the winter winds of Ekonk from finding their way into our hall! Anyone who has visited Ekonk in the winter can attest to the wind and cold that we are blessed with!

We were proud to have collected the most “G” bills of any Grange in the state and must especially acknowledge our two top collectors: Barbara Salisbury and the late Chuck Thurlow.

We are excited to have our Community Service book judged at National Grange. The materials in this book represent a huge commitment of our members and their generous service and caring hearts.

Friday, December 9th will be the annual play presented by our Junior Grange, beginning at 6:00 p.m. They continually make us proud as they share their talents and also help others! Veterans Day found them delivering BAGS of gifts to the Jewett City Home for Homeless Veterans - - 18 veterans living there were delighted with the remembrances and the children who delivered them! They will walk for St. Jude’s November 25th contact Rebecca Gervais 860-564-1139 if you wish to be a sponsor.

January 27th will be our annual Family Game/ Casino Night--all invited.
