|JULY 18, 2012 --
Each Pomona Grange in Connecticut now has a Mission Statement. These statements were adopted at Schools of Instructions held througout the winter and spring.
Pomonas are reminded that Mission Statements are living documents that should be reconsidered and updated as often as needed to keep the mission relevant to the Pomona.
Only one Pomona (New London County) opted not to adopt a Mision Statement at their School of Instruction. They plan to work on their statement in the near future.
The Mission Statements will be printed in the Connecticut Granger for at least the next couple of issues.
Please keep us posted if your Pomona decides to change or update its mission statement. E-mail changes to: Granger@CTStateGrange.org.
The Mission Statements are as follows:
Central Pomona No. 1 will support its Subordinate/Community Granges through programs and activities by actively contributing it talents and resources. Central Pomona supports local, State and National charities; educational and youth programs.
Quinebaug Pomona supports and assists the communities within its jurisdiction through a financial and physical presence. We offer the Community Granges assistance and support for their programs and activities.
