Chichester Grange met at the Grange Hall on September 18. Members
enjoyed a pot luck supper before the meeting. The charter was draped
in loving memory of Shirley Waters.
The downstairs hall has been reserved for a Penny Sale on November
2. The sale will have a Christmas theme and soup and rolls will be
sold as “value added.” Chichester Grange will have an exhibit in the
Grange and Community Building at the Deerfield Fair. It was voted to
purchase two pairs of winter boots to bring to the State Grange
annual meeting for the “Galoshes from Grangers” project. Chichester
Grange will also sponsor a child for Project Santa this year in
memory of Shirley Waters who was active in both the Grange and the
State Employees Association.
The program, presented by Carolee Davison, was about giant
vegetables. Members guessed the size or weight of various
record-setting vegetables and received normal-sized fruits and
vegetables as prizes. They learned that giant vegetables require
special seeds and excellent growing conditions. Alaska is a good
place to grow giant vegetables because of the many hours of daylight
during the growing season there.
The next meeting will be October 2. Anne Boisvert is in charge of
the program and Mary West is in charge of refreshments.
