1) no old business
1) As far as the Grange building & land goes, there will probably not be anything to report until
either later this year or early 2020. All of the paperwork has been submitted by us.
The next cemetery cleanup is scheduled for Saturday October 19th. We will meet at Parsons
cemetery on the
Middle Road. Marlene Little reported that we can have the individuals who need
to do community service
do more at the cemeteries or at the Grange Hall - we just need to know
what & when. One suggestion
is St. John cemetery off Jennings Road as it has never been
cleaned. Marlene will continue to coordinate
3) Anita Hesser reviewed the Craft / Bake sale to be held at Raymour & Flanigan Saturday
September 14, 2019 from 11 am to 4 pm. She reports we currently have 18 crafters signed up.
The morning of the 14th we will arrive at 9 am to begin our set-up. The Crafters will begin arriving
10 am & we will assist them as needed. Baked goods are needed for the Bake Sale table. If
supply baked goods bring them the day of the event. We will have hot dogs, meat sauce,
chips & bottled
water for sale & prices were set. Volunteers are greatly appreciated.
4) Our yearly bake sale at the
Horseheads American Legion is set for Friday November 22, 2019.
We will begin set up at 4 pm. This is one
of our most successful bake sales as it happens just prior
to Thanksgiving. If you can supply baked goods
we appreciate it.
