From The Lecturer's Desk
From the Lecturer's Desk: NE Lecturers' Conference Coming Soon

By Marge Bernhardt, CT State Grange Lecturer

  JUNE 6, 2015 --

Remember that old song which began “Summertime, and the Livin’ is Easy”?  Well it’s summertime in Connecticut and our Grange life is easy. We have Grange picnics, mystery rides, fairs, and don’t forget Lecturers’ Conference.  This is the 100th Anniversary of the North East Lecturers’ Conference.  I have heard that it is one of the best in the country.   It is a nice ride from here to Maine.  The weather is cooler and the beautiful rocky coast of Maine calls to us to visit.  By the time you are reading this you should have received all the information in the mail.  For anyone who didn’t get it, the conference is at St. Joseph’s College in Standish, Maine on August 3, 4 & 5.  If you need an application and didn’t get the information, please let me know and I will get it right out to you.

If you have any activities planned and need a little more publicity let me know.  We are now sending out an email twice a month (more or less often as needed).   And if you don’t get this list of coming activities and would like to get it, just email me and I will happily put you on the list.  

This time of year we also plan our schedule for next years’ activities.  Let’s not just keep the same program titles and activities year after year.  Spice up your programs and add some new zest to your Grange.   Need ideas?  How about contacting your schools?  Look for Youth Ambassadors or a Spanish or French Club that has travelled overseas over the summer.  Speaking before a group is a good experience for them and we can learn a lot from these students.  Like to travel?  Contact AAA.  They have information that is entertaining and educational as well.  Still stuck?  Give me a call, I’ll be glad to help you.  Not the Lecturer?  I’m sure your Lecturer would welcome an offer of a program they didn’t have to do themselves.  What a treat it would be for them to sit back in their own Grange meeting and be entertained by others.

We all need to work together for a better Grange.  Let’s all start today.

See You Around the State!
