Third-graders from Piscataquis Community Elementary School weren’t the only ones at the Valley Grange Hall for Dictionary Day last Friday. Also present were Corporal Austin and Miss Mary (Civil War Reenactors), Grange Bookworms and Members, and Laura Smith, a reporter from FOX 22/ABC 7 in Bangor. Check her report on Facebook.
This was Valley Grange’s fifteenth year presenting dictionaries to area students, bringing the total distributed to over 1,800. Students who make a field trip to the Grange Hall learn about the Civil War, the early days of the Grange, and the excitement of having their own personal dictionary. Another group of approximately 65 students will be visiting the hall soon and the “Dictionary Team” will be traveling to three schools to complete the program.
Additional information about the Dictionary Program can be found at the Dictionary Project Website.

If you can handle a pair of scissors and tie a knot, you should join a group of cut-ups at the Valley Grange Hall!
Saturday, November 12, 2016
9:00 a.m. until…
The coffee pot will be on and there may be a few snacks… running with scissors will be strictly prohibited.
Under the capable tutelage of Pat Engstrom all men, women, and children will be manufacturing blankets for Project Linus and for Veterans. She says it’s real easy and has even convinced Jim Annis to try his hand at it! No sewing is involved.
Any questions call Pat at 564-8290 or Janice at 876-4131. Material will be provided.
Speaking of cutting, remember that we are collecting coupons that you have no use for as part of our “Coups for Troops” Program. Bring what you have! Additional items collected include Box Tops for Education and aluminum can tabs.
