WILTON – Franklin Grange 50 did not have a regular meeting in September as members were working on Grange exhibition booths at Farmington Fair.

Their efforts resulted in a first-place blue ribbon for the domestic exhibit, which includes knitted, crocheted, sewn, wooden and quilted items along with baked goods. The agricultural exhibit came in second, while Farmington Grange took first place for their work, which included fresh and canned fruits and vegetables, jams and jellies and pickles.

Excelsior Pomona 5 had its fudge booth next to the Franklin exhibit. This was the first year and members were busy keeping an adequate amount of homemade fudge available.

Michael Flagg is the new master of Excelsior Pomona 5; outgoing master is Robert Smith.

Franklin Grange will meet for a noon potluck lunch on Saturday, Nov. 9, followed by a 1 p.m. meeting that will include installation of officers and presentation of 75-year certificates to two members. The upcoming program will be available. New member Faith Stevens prepared the programs.
