Feb 2022 News from Bridgewater Grange No. 153

By Dean Perry

  February 9, 2022 --

Monthly meetings are held on the second Wednesday at 7 P.M. in St. Mark’s Church in Bridgewater. Meetings  in  2021  were  in-person with some members using Zoom. Our January 22 meeting was all done with Zoom.

We participated in the trunk or treat Halloween event in Bridgewater. We set up a tent, had some spooky music and our members were dressed as witches, minions, judges and ghouls. We gave out candy to over two hundred children.

Five of our members went to Winchester Grange on Oct. 3 to participate in the Fifth Degree. Four of our members went to State Grange on Oct. 23 and received the Sixth Degree.

On Nov. 20 we had a takeout roast beef dinner at St. Mark’s Church. On Nov. 21 & 22 four members made and delivered Thanksgiving baskets full of goodies to members and friends of the Grange. Many were shut-ins or in nursing homes.

December 3rd, we participated in the Bridgewater Christmas Tree lighting ceremony. We had two elves helping Santa. The next Wednesday, December 8th, we had our monthly meeting. Before the meeting we had a pizza party and after the meeting we had a Christmas gift exchange.

Our planned Chili Dinner take- out, on Jan. 15th, had to be canceled because of extreme cold. Some of our members will be eating a lot of chili this winter.

Our next big plan is to celebrate Hazel Pitcher’s 100th birthday this coming March 28th. Hazel has been a long-time member of Bridgewater Grange. She was active in the Grange, Saint Mark’s Church and the town Senior Center until the last two years.
