Oct. 9: Indian Summer, Ref. Sara Bement & Sue Addison

Oct. 23: BOO! (Country Store), Ref. Sandy Phillips

Winchester Grange wrapped up its “outdoor” events for 2018 with Winchester Center Day on Sept. 29. The event, organized with the Winchester Center Congregational Church, the Winchester Ctr. Vol. Fire Dept. and the Winchester Center Historical Association draws many people to the Grange and the Center to enjoy the early fall weather and catch up with old friends. Winchester Grange’s portion of the event is a tag sale in the hall and homemade Apple Crisp for sale throughout the day. Each year we end up selling out on the Apple Crisp by noon time. This is being written a couple days before the event but we’re sure that will be the case again this time around.

Looking ahead we will have a program on Indian Summer on Oct. 9 and one entitled “Boo” on Oct. 23.

We were pleased to have the Cameron/Barnes Installing Team install our officers at our second September meeting. As you may know, this will be the last year the team will be traveling the state and it was nice knowing one of their last stops was at Winchester Grange. They did a wonderful job, as usual, and we wish each and every one the best and thank them for their hard work for the Granges of the Connecticut State Grange.

We should also thank Billy LaTulipe for his term as Master of Winchester Grange and wish our new Master Peter Keefe the best of luck as he starts his new term. As you may know, this writer served 19 years as Master of Winchester Grange. No matter what else I have done in the Grange, being Master of Winchester ranks as one of the highest honors.

Coming up Winchester’s Fall Super Prize Party and Bake Sale will be held on Friday, November 2nd with the doors opening at 6 and the drawing to begin at 7. So mark it on your calendar and we hope to see you there!
