Flora Grange July 2016 Newsletter
This might be a little early but things are happening real fast.
1st. Thursday, June 23rd is the Kirkland Lions Club Ladies Night Out. Those who have offered to help , please come around 6:00pm except for Bob Scherer.
2nd. Saturday the 25th is the Flapjack Fundraiser. We do need you to come and help at that event. Only lasts for 2 hours from 8-10 and what an excellent way to make some money for the Grange. Don’t forget to sell those tickets. For each ticket sold and used we only pay Applebee $1.00. Please help to make this a GREAT event.
3rd June 29th is Pomona Grange Picnic at the Al and Lindakay Ebel’s farm at 6199 Wolf Rd. Kingston, IL. Due to the confusion about fair board secretary, I feel a new secretary should have at least a year to learn the ropes so to speak. Therefore, I would be willing to step up to the plate for a term if Pomona Grange members agree to that commitment with the understanding that the second year would be open to prospective individuals to learn the program and then at election become a candidate for the position. First of all I guess an election needs to be held with those suggestions explained.
4th. .July 12th is Flora Grange’s work night at the fairgrounds. Come as early as you can and bring paint brushes. Refreshments will be dutch treat at Culver’s. The more people that come the easier the load of work to be done and a lot more is accomplished.
5th Time to sign up for working at the various spots that Flora Grange is committee to. Please let me know when and where you would like to work.
