  NOVEMBER 6, 2023 --

Three of our members are looking forward to attending the October 19-21 CT State Grange session in Norwich.

Our monthly Grange meeting on October 26th will include updates from the state session, information about potential programs in the coming months and community service.

October 30-31 - Some of our members are interested in helping out at the American School of the Deaf Halloween activities.

November 9 - We will be showing the 5th of a 5 part docuseries on Beaver Pond Wildlife by Ray Aselin.

Our filmmaker will be on hand to answer any questions at the end of the film. Here’s what we’ll see:

Foliage turns in time-lapses from green to blazing autumn colors. Wildlife prepares for winter, beavers build food caches, snow arrives, ponds are capped with ice, but beavers are still actively feeding and maintaining lodges. Muskrats and otters are busy, and beavers are heard vocalizing in the lodge. The general ecology of beaver pond habitat is discussed, including the eventual change from pond to meadow, and the large range of wildlife that the habitat supports.

Join us at 6:00pm for a neighborly social hour and enjoy the film at 7:00. Community members are now bringing food to share which will include a Tex-Mex casserole, Beaver Lodge cookies, shrimp, cheese, crackers, grapes and more!
