Bookworm Schedule September 2012

Reading is fun!If you don’t have time to read, you don’t have the time or the tools to write. Simple as that.”

Stephen King

Who doesn’t love the energy associated with the back to school season!? Bookworms are organizing… so far this year Mrs. Marsh, Mrs. Erwin, Mrs. Bosworth and Mr. Boomsma will be returning. Mrs. Annis continues to be our scheduler and Mrs. Boomsma and Mr. Kevin will fill in when possible. We are also hoping to welcome two new bookworms: Mrs. Wright from Dover Foxcroft and Mr. Patterson from Abbot. We’ll be able to do lots of reading! Grange members who are interested in helping out should contact Mr. Boomsma for more information!

We’re also busy counting our dictionaries–Thanks to our Words for Thirds Program, Dictionary Days are coming soon! Our goal is to make sure that every third grader in the area has his or her own dictionary–last year we gave our 1000th dictionary! Our largest fundraiser for this program is our annual fall “Meat or Heat” Raffle which will be starting soon. Make sure you get your ticket and your chance to win $100 you can use for meat or heat!

Here are some Valley Grange and school activities coming up:

Thursday, September 6 – Valley Grange hosts the September Pomona Meeting. (These are meetings of all Granges in the area.) The traditional potluck supper starts at 6 PM and meeting starts at 7 PM. Mr. Boomsma will be presenting his resolution to protect children’s photos and info for consideration and the lecturer’s program for the evening is “Gee Haw!”

Friday, September 21 –Grange members meet for a roundtable discussion of programs and projects during the next year… members are encouraged to bring their calendars, ideas and energy! Potuck supper is at 6 PM, meeting is at 7 PM.
