Around The Grange
March 2020 News from Ekonk Community Grange No. 89

By Sue Gray

  March 20, 2020 --

The Juniors did a “Stamping Up” fun/fundraiser in February, each leaving with four lovely, handmade cards! They also enjoyed a potluck supper. So much enthusiasm from these kids, saw it at the annual Family Game Night, see it whenever they are around! Brianna Gervais (and Rebecca) had a fantastic time in New Hampshire in February when Brianna represented National Grange at the Primaries there. She learned a lot out the New Hampshire legislature, toured their statehouse, got a fabulous tour of a hill complex, listened to the candidates debate: how many kids get that kind of exposure to national political leaders at age 11? Her next major National event is March 6-12 in Washington,

D.C. Our Grange donated $500 to assist the family with expenses not covered by the National Grange on this trip.

We have interest among our youth and juniors in organizing a 2020 Drill Team. Our youth and juniors are certainly marching forward in so many ways.

On April 6, our dear friends from Richmond Grange in RI will be bringing us their annual Exchange Program- you do NOT want to miss this absolutely fantastic night. Then on Friday, April 17, you will fi d Ekonk at Richmond entertaining them! Always a fun exchange!
