Around The Grange
Jan 2023 News from N. Stonington Community Grange No. 138

By Nancy R. Weissmuller

  JANUARY 3, 2023 --

Our Christmas party  was  lots of fun! The hall  was  decked  out in glittering splendor. Our new Christmas tree donated by Cheree and Robert Miner took center stage up front by Santa’s chair. Lecturer Sue Pianka read The Little Drummer Boy to a group of excited children then gave each child a copy of the book. We sang Christmas songs before Santa arrived with his bag of gifts. As well as gifts from Santa everyone received an apple, a candy cane and a tiny stocking ornament. Refreshments were outstanding and everyone left full and happy.

Our usual caroling around town fell on the night of a nasty storm, so we surprised some people when we arrived a few nights later. Along with the carols we delivered delicious fruit baskets, candy and an ornament. We also donated many gift certificates to our local food cupboard to brighten the day for families in need.

Just a gentle reminder (and to save a stamp), if you haven’t paid your dues yet, please do.

Our next program will be hosted by  Nancy  Weissmuller.  Should be fun! And if those pounds that sneaked on during the holidays will just sneak themselves off again, next time we’ll tell you all about jolly January.
