President's Message
President's Message: Looking to an Early Spring

By George Russell, CT State Grange President

  March 1, 2020 --

Will March come in like a lamb or go out like a lion?  So far we’ve had a pretty mild winter but I’m still looking forward to an early spring.

All three Pomona Granges will be meeting in March: Mountain Laurel Pomona will meet on March 7, Eastern Connecticut Pomona will meet on March 14 and Nutmeg Pomona will meet on March 22. Nutmeg Pomona will be conferring the Fifth Degree for their annual inspection and will be meeting at Cheshire Grange Hall. For more information you can call Joanne Cipriano, the Pomona Secretary. Mountain Laurel and Eastern Connecticut Pomonas will be conferring the degree in May.

Agricultural Day at the Capitol will be on Wednesday, March 18 from 10 A.M. to 1 P.M. The Connecticut State Grange will be setting up our booth. I will be there along with members of the Legislative Committee and the Agricultural Committee. So if you’re near the Capitol, stop in and say hello.

I will be attending the Northeast Leaders’ Conference hosted by the New York State Grange on March 27 to the 29th in Albany, NY. I will be attending the New England Grange Building Meeting and the Northeast Connection meeting and will attend several workshops they have planned for the weekend. It looks like it’s going to be a busy weekend.

By the time you are reading this I will have attended the Master’s Conference in Baltimore, MD on Feb. 14 through the 16th. I will have details in the next report.

Eureka Grange #62 has decided to turn in their charter. With the lack of members and trying to keep up the Grange hall, they felt they could no longer keep going. The members voted last meeting to merge with Winchester Grange #74.  These are the meetings that I do not enjoy attending.

Ending this article with a positive note, I hear that some of our Granges have brought in new members! Keep up the good work!
