A reminder that this Sunday is Pomona Grange’s chili fundraising event and Flora Grange is in charge of parking vehicles and cleaning up following the event as well as clearing and cleaning the tables after a setting. Mike Mundy, Jack Ratcliffe, and Al Ebel will be working in the parking lot. If you can find a time to let them go inside and warm up, it would be greatly appreciated. Emalee and Laurel could use another hand during the serving clearing the tables. After 2:00 pm when we are to be done serving additional help is definitely needed. Can you come to help wash dishes etc? Let me know please.
March comes in the first of next week. Our snow birds will be returning.
Now down to the upcoming calendar events. March 2nd will be a candidates night at the Community Grange Hall beginning at 7:00 p.m. Come and become better informed about your candidates running for local offices.
March 5th and 6th will be quilting at the hall. Each day the group starts about 9:00am, so bring something to share for lunch and your projects and enjoy a crafty time at the hall.
March 8th will be a regular meeting with cake, jello and/or sandwiches served following the meeting which will begin at 7:00pm. Serving committee consists of the Todd and Emalee Colver, Wayne and Nancy Lyford, and Ernie Wilson. Dues are still payable for the discounted amount of $19.00 per person. On April 1st, dues will jump to $25.00 per person. Now is the time to pay those dues!
March 15th is Election Day for Boone County. Make you voice heard and vote!
March 17th is St. Patrick’s day. Wear your GREEN!
Second, this is an excellent time to sign up new members. Remember, new members only pay $2.25 for each month remaining in the year in which they join.
Third, mark your calendars for the Safety Town event June 7-10th. We are asking for your help in providing 1 pound coffee cans with lids. They can be either plastic or metal. It is a great time for the kids to learn about safety and there is a GREAT need for helpers during those 4 days.
April looks like a busy, busy month. Just a peak tells me that a big public dinner is planned for the 10th.
Then May 21-22 is the 51th anniversary of the Model T club event at which we are serving food. Mark your calendars.
Please keep our members who have recently encounter health issues in your prayers. Problems affect many of our members and praying does help.
