March 2020 News from Higganum Grange No. 124

By Richard Prescott

  March 3, 2020 --

Higganum Grange met in form for its February meeting with a quorum, plus, in attendance. Committee reports: The building is holding up well during this winter weather. Plans have to be made to budget for parking lot paving. Treasurer’s report shows that all state obligations have been met as well as all current bills.  We have no debt and have a positive balance in the checking account. We continue to have a representative, Gail Reynolds, at the town economic development committee meetings regarding the Higganum Farmer’s Market and will again support and participate in the Market. Our representative to the Land Trust meetings, Helen Luk, reports that there is discussion of “invasive worms” in town. She is preparing a draft report regarding a proposed state regulation banning the importation of such worms into the state.

The new annual word was shared with dues paid members. Plans continue for future meetings: Easter Egg hunt, family game night are possible themes. Lecturer, Helen Luk, read a poem, “Spring Cleaning” an inspirational reading from an old Grange publication. This publication from the year 1915, was entitled “Grange Recitations” and was written for Grange Lecturers. This booklet was found by Florence LaTouche when she was cleaning out some old family “stuff” in her home. Refreshments after the meeting put a nice finishing touch to an evening of fellowship. An open invitation to all to join us on the first Friday of each month at 7:00 P.M. All are welcome.
