September 2014 Newsletter

Another fair is over and we survived a couple of busy months of preparation and a hectic week of meals, shows and awards. Perfect weather kept everyone cool and content. Attendance was very good although not a record but above last year. Many, many thanks for all the support and work each and every Flora Grange member did. Without your dedication, the fair would not be the big event that it is.

September 9th will be the next regular meeting beginning at 7:00. Cake, jello and sandwiches will be the refreshments to be served. Serving committee will be Joan and Allen Fidder, Helen, Steve and Cathy Cadie.
