LIVERMORE FALLS – Officers of New Norland Grange were installed recently with the following team: Installing master, State Grange Master Steve Verrill; first marshal and master, State Flora Sue Verrill; second marshal, Chaplain Roberta Meserve; emblem bearer, Harold Andrews; regalia bearer, Charmaine Andrews; pianist, Barbara Driscoll; vocalists, Betty Young, state CWA member; David Young, state legislative member; and Caroline Young, state soloist.

Installed were: master, Robert Jones, overseer, Celeste Flagg; lecturer and Ceres, Emily Pike; secretary and treasurer, Frances Berry; Flora, Esther Watson; executive committee member, David Clark.

A potluck supper was served before the meeting when local grangers were installed with members of Turner Grange.

Last month the charter was draped in memory of Sylvia Edgecomb and Albert Jones Sr. Flowers were placed on the Bible for each of them, for other members who have gone before and for all servicemen and women. “In the Garden ” was sung by all, followed by the Lord’s Prayer.

Lecturer Emily Pike presented the program, which included an opening thought and song, “An Evening Prayer.” Esther Watson read “A Song of Harvest” and each named something for which they were thankful.

Arlene Jones noted that she and her husband, Ron, would celebrate their 55th anniversary on Thanksgiving Day.

Celeste Flagg read a story, all sang “Come Ye Thankful People, Come,” and “Over the River,” closing with “Eating at the Big Table” by Erma Bombeck.

It was agreed to donate to the local Food Cupboard instead of having an exchange of gifts at the Dec. 11 meeting, which will be the last one held in the hall for the winter. The January meting will be held at the home of Lecturer Emily Pike.
