Greetings Grange Youth, Youth Committee Members, Youth Directors and Youth Enthusiasts,
We received an email today from our National Youth Director, Charlene Espenshade. We have a few very important items that need attention and I would also like to give details about the Folder Contest. We need all hands on deck during State Grange. I plan on posting more about State Grange this week.
The Folding Display Contest….entries should be at State Grange by 10 am on Thursday morning. The winner will be announced on Saturday morning during the Youth Program. The Contest rules can be found in the Youth Program Book and also were posted on Monday. This contest is open to only youth 14 to 35! The winning entry goes to National Grange in November.
Our note from Director Espenshade, was a reminder that all Applications for Distinguished Granges, Grow Club Scholarship, Trimble Award, Junior Mentor, Leadership Awards, Community Service, Youth Ambassadors and National Youth Officer Team are due. Maine would enjoy having Youth Attend National Grange this year. We have money available and is awarded on a needs basis. If you are interested in going on a trip to Stowe Vermont, get your application in ASAP or you can call, text or email me, so that I can let Director Charlene Espenshade know.
We are asking that the Subordinate Youth Committee people, get together with your Pomona Youth Committee person and bring a basket or a nice item for the Chinese Auction . We will also do a 50/50 and the money raised will help send a Youth to Nationals.
I look forward to helping each and every youth.
