Killingly Grange February 2019 News

By Glenna Bruno

  FEBRUARY 17, 2019 --

The words to the old song, “the weather outside is frightful” are so true.  Weather-wise it was a mysterious year, not the usual old fashioned weather.

Most of our meetings were held in a timely manner.  We had our picnic in July, a craft fair in Oct. and several second Weds. suppers.  Pretty good attendance.  A new rug was added to the hall, we acquired a new to us cook stove and a few chairs were acquired from other Granges.  Pat Valys had someone make a new moveable chair rack to transport our hall chairs in and out whenever we have bluegrass or some other activity in the hall.  Bluegrass was scheduled for Jan. 26 with things getting back to normal.

We had a day of decorating our nice artificial Christmas tree for our Yankee Swap Christmas Party on Dec. 17.  It was well attended with a potluck dinner preceding the party and a fun time with the Box of Chocolates.  Santa appeared thanks to Pat Valys.  Thanks to Pat and Linda Harkins who brought a very talented gal who entertained us with singing, tapping and playing a guitar all at one time.  Talk about multi-tasking.  She was it.  It was a fun night.

Dave Griffith, Master, has been composing an agenda of activities for the coming year.  So come join us and I will be sitting by enjoying it all, putting by 2¢ worth when needed.

At our last Bean Supper, while getting it ready, I fell in front of the Grange that afternoon and got the biggest bump the size of a grapefruit on my thigh.  No bones broken, thank goodness.

Also during this time we lost one of our older members, Dr. Cranston Briggs.  He was always ready with a joke or story.  Happy trails Cranny!
