Contest Weekend

Friday - Saturday - Sunday
August 20-22, 2021

The CT State Grange Family Activities Committee will be hosting a Contest Weekend on August 20 thru 22. It will be held at Hillstown Grange in East Hartford.

Entries can be given to one of the Committee members on or before Friday, August 20th. Or, if you prefer, bring them directly to the Hillstown Grange Hall on Friday.

If for any reason you are unable bring them Friday or meet up with a committee member, you must have them at the Hall on Saturday morning prior to the start of judging on August 21st.

On Sunday, August 22nd, Hillstown Grange will host a Pancake Breakfast from 8:30 and 11:30AM. Grangers can come and take a look at the entries, as well as enjoy a nice breakfast and each other's company.

Hillstown Grange has had much experience in dealing with COVID-19 preparation for their hall and have been very safe for their events. We feel that this should be a great event. Please remember, all First Place winners will be retained by the committee to go to the Big E.

There will also be a tea cup auction and the raffle will be drawn at the end of the breakfast.

Send an e-mail to Director Dawn Percoski at cwa@ctstategrange.org for more information.
