Mark Your Calendars June 8th will be the Flapjack Fundraising event at Applebee’s. We need sales of tickets and help to serve the pancakes etc. I started making contact right after the direction to get a date and this is the first opening they had so I took it.
February 2nd is the BOCO event at the community building. Lindakay, Al and Deb are heading this up, but I am sure they would appreciate a little help with manning the booth during the day. If you would be able to sit at the booth and answer questions and promote our events, call Lindakay (715-493-2344) and she can give a suggested time.
February 12th will be the dues paying supper beginning at 6:30. Members are encouraged to bring a dish to pass and the committee is Roger and Sharon Miller and Kathee Frazer, Kris and Scott. Dues this year will remain the same- $19.00 per member if paid before April 1st, 2019. After that date dues will be $25.00. If a new member signs up during the year they will be charged $2.10 for each month left in the year including the month in which they join.
February 14th Happy Valentine’s Day
February 16th-18th Quilting at the hall, weather permitting! Remember you don’t have to be a quilter to come and enjoy good company, work some on you own project, and get out of the house. Each day begins around 9:00am and lasts until around 3:00 or 4:00. You are encouraged to bring something to share for lunch.
March 1st Remember, those wishing to apply for a scholarship through the Illinois State Grange, applications must be in by late February. I have the rules for the scholarships so call if you would like to apply. (815-222-6173)
Hopefully members suffering from the flu are recovering and the flu bug will become weak and die off real soon.
It has been pointed out to me that I have made some mistakes in the 2019 Flora Grange Book. I am by no means perfect and I appreciate all the help I can get to keep records straight. Here is what you need to change in the book, if you so desire.
- Remove the information pertaining to Little Hershey as we will not be serving food for that event.
- Add Saturday, June 8th Flapjack Fundraising from 8-10.
- Correct the address for Andy and Sandra Fidder — Should be 944 Yorkshire Lane
- Add Joe Sosnowski 7431 E. State Street Rockford, IL 61108 [email protected] 815-871-4364
Safe travels throughout these winter month’s.
One day closer till spring.
