See You at the Fair?!

The photo doesn’t do it justice… there’s a lot to see in this year’s Valley Grange Fair Exhibit! We’ve returned to the “then and now” theme… comparing items of today with items of yesteryear… and of course, there’s an opportunity to get familiar with the many programs we have. Stop by the Grange Building and check it out! The Piscataquis Valley Fair is on until Sunday afternoon…

Community Potluck Supper 6:00 — 7:00*

Eddie Eagle Program  7:15 — 7:45 p.m.

*please bring a dish to share with  your friends and neighbors.

We’re assembling family safety resources and plan to have a variety of people and material available during and after the potluck supper… Examples of what we’re looking for include fire safety, bicycle safety, what to do when lightning strikes…  the program is built around the Eddie Eagle Gun Safety Program, but we have room for people and material on a wide variety of topics. If you are interested in participating as a safety resource or have handout material we can use, call Mary Annis at 564-0820 or Walter Boomsma at 343-1842 or email grange@boomsmaonline.com.


Would your child know what to do if he or she found a gun?

Picture1“Mr. Boomsma” will be facilitating the NRA Eddie Eagle Gunsafe® Program as part of this family safety program. Free workbooks will be distributed to kids from pre-school age to grade four, but all ages are welcome! The Eddie Eagle GunSafe® program is a gun accident prevention program developed by National Rifle Association firearm safety and education experts designed to teach children four simple, easy to remember steps so they know what to do if they ever come across a gun. In a brand new video, Eddie and his friends remind children that if they see a gun, they need to stop, don’t touch, run away and tell a grown-up. The program makes no value judgments about firearms, no firearms are ever used, and it covers an important topic that needs to be addressed with kids. With recent changes in gun legislation and firearms found in about half of all American households, it’s a program that makes sense.
