Last Tuesday of the month, November 25th
Monthly Potluck/Grange Meeting 6:30
In addition to our monthly potluck and meeting will be having Election’s for our 2015 Grange Officers
There will be some discussion about the findings of the Site Planning group that met on Nov 22.
Reminder that there will be NO DECEMBER Meeting! This is the last general meeting for 2014.
Our next small Grange Meeting will be the Business Meeting, held the 2nd Tuesday of the Month, December 9th, starting at 6pm.
And ANOTHER reminder: it’s time to submit your annual dues… as in less than $3/month, an awesome deal ~$33/person. In an effort to decrease the workload on our Treasurer, it would be great if you could bring a check to the meeting, so that it is taken care of for 2015.Nice to get it done before the holiday chaos. Check it off your list!
