We are posting a reminder because the next edition of the Bulletin comes out after our video meeting.
Juniors will meet at 10:00 am on November 21, 2020, by video and everyone is welcome to join us. Check it out and see what the Juniors are doing. Get your 5-14-year-olds to join you, please.
Sister Terry will be setting it up and our officers for our meeting will be selected by family groups. Let us know if you want the codes and passwords to connect.? They will be posted on our Maine State Junior Grange #17 page on Facebook or just send one of us a message and we’ll clue you in. We don’t want to use the word ’Zoom’ because some young people associate it with doing school work, but that is the service we will use and it’s for 40 minutes to be free.
Juniors – please have your Thanksgiving decoration/wreath made to exhibit and plan to share how your family will celebrate Thanksgiving. If you have earned a badge or need to do something with the group to earn a badge, let one of know so we can plan the time correctly. ?To earn the Kelley Farm Support Badge, you need to do some research 1. Find out what the Kelley Farm is and why it is important to the Grange. 2. Help your Junior Grange raise money to send to the National Grange. Those who have had items displayed last year helped earn the money we sent to the Kelley Farm from Litchfield Fair. Thank you! We look forward to seeing everyone then. It was a good meeting last time. Please reserve the third Saturday in January and March for future meetings.
Our winter schedule is: November – Make a Thanksgiving decoration or wreath to share on the Virtual Meeting @ 10:00 am on November 21. Share your Thanksgiving Crafts and tell what your Thanksgiving plans are.
December – Make a Christmas or Hanukkah Card for someone in your Subordinate Grange or your FRamily (Friend-Family).
January – Do a Re-cycle Craft to share at the Virtual Meeting at 10:00 am. Share your Re-cycle Craft.
SEASONAL WREATH OR DECORATION
Create a Seasonal Wreath from any type of form – cardboard, foam, wire, vines, etc. either handmade or store-bought. OR make a decoration for any season. If you use a hot glue gun, be sure to have parental guidance, please! Use ribbons, acorns, cones, ornaments, plastic eggs, colored leaves, toys, etc. Anything added must be secure! Size not to exceed 20 inches.
Use your own imagination for your own project… plastic lids or tubs, paper towel or toilet tissue rolls, used greeting cards, jars or cans that have no sharp nicks, any clean item that might be thrown away! Turn it into a decoration or usable object. Use ribbon, colored paper, stickers, whatever strikes your fancy. If you use a glue gun or super glue, have parental guidance, PLEASE!!
Save your crafts, ?please, so we can use them when we are able to set up any Fair Exhibits again and earn money for Kelley Farm and our activities.
