October 2018 News from Ekonk Community Grange No. 89

By Sue Gray

  October 2, 2018 --

Special thanks to Jodi Ann Cameron for once again heading up the Ekonk booth at Brooklyn Fair! She was awarded a plaque for 30 years continuous participation! We were notified by the National Grange that for the seventh consecutive year, Ekonk Community Grange achieved “Distinguished Grange” status due to the commitment of our membership. Lillian Sharpe, Junior President, will represent CT at National Grange in Stowe, VT as she vies for National Junior Grange Ambassador. Lillian, 13, chaired the Blueberry Supper in July and at this writing, is prepared to handle the Roast Pork Supper Sept. 15th-cooking 130 pounds of pork loin! She and Connor Sebastian were written up in the National Grange publication, “Good Day” for winning the Sterling Patriotic Essay contest. Jody Cameron installed our officers, with Link Cooper once again taking the helm. By the time you read this, we will have served over 700 hungry farmers at Celebrate AG at the Woodstock Fairgrounds (a hearty farm breakfast plus lunch)! We will have divided and conquered on that day, Sept. 22nd, since National Grange asked several of our Juniors/youth to participate in “Farm Aid” in Hartford on that same say! October 13th will be our roast beef supper and Verna Cole will be in charge. She had Family Reunion conflicts in July and September. God bless Verna! Our final supper for 2018 will be our annual Turkey Supper, Sat., Nov. 17th. Feel free to visit us any first Monday (Subordinate) or any first Friday (Junior). You are always welcome to the Grange on the hill!
