Wow, I had better get my act in gear if I want to get the newsletter out before the end of the month. What a “character building year” for farmers and people whose professions lead them into the raining conditions outside.
Enjoy the Memorial Day weekend and safe travels to all. Remembering our military and our loved ones is why this particular holiday was established.
June 6-9th This newsletter is a plea for members to help spread the word about Safety Town. Reservations are coming in very slow, so therefore word of mouth might help. June 6-9th at the Grange Food complex on the Boone County Fairgrounds beginning at 9:00am and ending at 11:00am. The event is entirely free and along with the two safety issues covered every day, snacks, and crafts are also offered. Please help spread the word.
June 13th Grange picnic at the hall. Bring a dish to pass and own table service. Gene and Donna West and George McGee and Mary Harbison will be the serving committee. Community Service Awards will be presented.
June 22nd Ladies night out for the Kirkland Lions Club served by Flora Grange members. Serving will begin at 7:00pm. Help will be needed as serving is family style with two meats.

Keep our members who are dealing with health issues in our prayers: Shance Brockman, Rogene Littlejohn, and other of whom I have not been made aware.
