Public Relations News: Is your Grange participating in Grange Month?

By Terri Fassio, CT State Public Relations Co-Director

  APRIL 2022 --

April 2022 has been declared Grange Month by National Grange President Betsy Huber. This year’s theme is “Raised Right Here.” This theme is designed to focus on local resources, sustainability and resilience for rural areas and the hometowns where Granges are located. Community Granges throughout Connecticut are encouraged to participate in the month-long celebration by opening their doors to the public for family-oriented events and activities focused on the contributions of the Grange in their communities.

National Grange has distributed their resources promoting  Grange  Month   via   download   this year.                (https://www.nationalgrange.org/grange-month-2022/ ) New this year is Grange Spirit Week, April 3 - 9, with a different “challenge” each day. We strongly encourage your participation to help spread the Grange story. National Grange is also presenting many virtual events from their Departments and Directors. These Zoom events are open to all members, so please encourage members to tune in by sharing National Grange’s social media posts.

Community Granges will be celebrating Grange Month with open houses, lectures and programs, citizens’ awards, service projects, community displays, traditional pot-luck suppers and more. Be sure to check out the Calendar of Events on the Connecticut State Grange website at www.CTStateGrange.org, Grange Social Media pages, and the calendar items listed in the Connecticut Granger for details.

If you need help promoting your Grange’s Grange Month events - such as writing press releases and articles, designing posters and more - the PR Committee is just an e-mail away! E-mail: publicrelations@ctstategrange.org or information@ctstategrange.org.
