Juniors: Celebrate being a Junior Granger

By Michele DeDominicis, CT State Grange Junior Director

  SEPTEMBER 6, 2014 --

As summer quickly comes to an end, our Juniors are all starting their new journeys as the school year begins!

It was great to see the turn out of Connecticut State Junior Grangers during this years Northeast Regional Youth Conference in Nashua NH.  They participated in the Speech Contests, Sign Language Contests, Drill Team and much, much more.

Congratulations to Angelina DeDominicis, Kayla Michaud and Anna Greenwald who place 1st, 2nd, and 3rd respectively in the Junior Level Speech contests! A shout out to Nevayah Moreno and Victoria Tackett who also competed representing Connecticut Juniors - It takes great courage to speak in front of a group that large - and everyone did a fabulous job!
