From The Lecturer's Desk
From the Lecturer's Desk - Get ready for the warmer weather

By Marge Bernhardt, CT State Grange Lecturer

  MARCH 5, 2019 --

They say that March comes in like a lion and goes out like a lamb.  Let’s hope that lamb gets here real early.  While we haven’t had much snow as of this writing, a lot of us are complaining about the damp, cold weather we have had.

With this in mind, let’s talk about some activities to get ready for when the warmer weather approaches.  

Lecturers’ Conference will be August 5, 6 & 7 at the Devens Common Center in Devens, Massachusetts. This will be a new and different type of conference aimed at helping Lecturers plan better programs.  Each State will no longer put on a complete program.  Instead, each State will put on one number in a Northeast Program.  Our number will be a George and Harriet skit entitled “The Farmer’s Wife” written by Nancy Weissmuller.  There will be more workshops than there has been in the past and also ways for you to meet and greet Grangers from other States.  Make your plans now.

Grange Sunday will be held at Cheshire Grange Hall on Sunday, June 9.  All numbers in both the “A Number” and the Talent Contest go right to Cheshire for Judging on a State Level. 

Every Grange in the State should be able to have an “A Number” entry.  The theme this year is “Holidays”.  This can be on any recognized holiday.  Any number suitable for a Grange Meeting is eligible.  Time Limit: 6 minutes (includes set-up and performance). Numbers will be judged on presentation, quality, audience appeal, appropriateness of theme, and originality.

Have Talent?  Why not show it off in our Talent Contest?   Performance time allowed is six minutes.  State winners will be eligible to perform at Lecturers’ Conference and at National Session.  

Hope to see you at Leaders’ Conference and around the State.
