WILTON – Franklin Grange 50 met on Jan. 8 for the first session of the year. A potluck lunch was held, and Mavis Lane, junior deputy of the Maine State Grange, and her husband, Wesley, were honored guests.

The charter was draped in memory of Helen Bubier. A Resolution of Respect was signed by Thelma Frost, Olive Toothaker and Michael Flagg and mailed to her family.

The youth and junior groups will work together to collect soup labels and bottle tabs. A thank-you was extended to the Frost/Mosher family for their recent donation to the Grange.

Replacement ceiling tiles have been purchased as a start for upgrading the hall. Members are working on projects for the State Grange sewing contest and dress-a-doll contest.

The next meeting will be a Valentine/Ice Cream Social on Saturday, Feb. 12, with a noon potluck lunch followed by a regular meeting at the Flagg home on Depot Street. All are welcome.

The grange is still looking for ideas for community service projects. Those who are not a grange member but have an idea are invited to call the Flaggs at 645-9861.
