From The Lecturer's Desk
From The Lecturer's Desk: NE Lecturer's Conf.

By Marge Bernhardt, CT State Grange Lecturer

  September 1, 2019 --

My thanks to everyone who contributed to the gift I received at Lecturer’s Conference. Connecticut is a great state, full of wonderful Grangers.

The new format for the conference was well received by those attending. Connecticut had more in attendance than any other state except the home state of Massachusetts. We had a great group and I was told we had the noisiest group on Spirit group. I thank each and every one of you and hope you enjoyed it.

Our part of the program was a fantastic skit written by Nancy Weissmuller entitled “George and Harriet - The Farmer’s Wife.” Featured in the skit was Noel Miller as George and Cheri Robinson as Harriet. At one point people in the audience wished they had rotten tomatoes to throw at Noel and one person threatened him with a baseball bat. but, all ended with a smile as they hugged and made up.

No decision has been made on the conference for 2021 except that we will be meeting in New Hampshire. I have a meeting in Jan. and after that I should have more information.

Please don’t forget that entries for the Complete Program and Essay Contests are due to me by October 1st. Honor Lecturer forms will be included with the next newsletter. The Honor Lecturer reports and Should Auld Acquaintance forms are also due by October 1st. Remember, you don’t have to be a Lecturer to enter any of these in the name of your Grange.
