|MAY 1, 2012 --
The Connecticut State Grange is serving up a feast and the main dish will be CT State Grange Past President F. Philip Prelli. Taking a cue from the old Dean Martin Roasts and Comedy Roast Specials as seen on television, the Connecticut State Grange will be honoring Prelli on Saturday, May 19, in a Comedy Roast at Cheshire Grange Hall.
Hosted by the Social Connection Committee of the CT State Grange, the festivities begin at 6:00 PM. Cheshire Grange Hall is located at 44 Wallingford Road, Cheshire. Tickets are $10 per person.
Prelli who served as President of the CT State Grange from 2002 - 2006, served from 1991 - 2003 as a State Representative for the 63rd District. He was also selected as Connecticut's Commissioner of Agriculture from 2005 - 2011. In 1995 Prelli was named Connecticut Farm Bureau Legislator of the Year, and in 2002 he received the Farm Bureau's Agricultural Statesman Award. Prelli is a member of Riverton Grange.
Tickets are going quickly, and the event is expected to sell out. Information is available by contacting Social Connection Director Joanne Cipriano at email@example.com.
The Connecticut State Grange has been an integral part of communities across the state for over 125 years, with nearly 60 local Grange chapters. More information on the Grange in Connecticut can be found at www.CTStateGrange.org.
