She’s 90 Years Young!

Laura Pratt

Our “past master” is rapidly approaching her 90th birthday… and because she’s a frequent participant in the Words For Thirds Dictionary presentation I often “whisper” to the kids that she’s “really old” when I introduce her. Then when she chats with them she’ll tell them how long she’s been a member of the Grange… and that she joined when she was fourteen years old. This gives us a “teachable moment” as the young scholars attempt the math in their heads.

It’s not her age but her smile and her enthusiasm that defines Laura, but this birthday does provide an opportunity to honor this great woman and her many contributions to the Grange, the community, and her family and friends.  So you’re invited to join all those folks for a Birthday Party Open House at the home of Floyd and Nathalee Marsh: 38 Butter Street in Guilford.

Saturday, March 12 from 1 – 4 PM

You won’t have to calculate her age, but you should ask her some questions because she has a great memory. She might even tell you about the time the Grange Outhouse got painted in her honor.
