The Castle Hill Grange Hall Preservation Society is in desperate need of new members and need fresh ideas. Please give them an hour of your time once a month to help keep the building operating. The fund-raisers they have are just paying their expenses and leave them with little else to do their projects. If you have enjoyed voting, going to town meetings, their suppers, having a reasonable hall to rent right in your own town, and other events, please consider helping to keep their organization going for future years. Working member is $10 per year, or $15 for non-working member or $100 for a lifetime membership. Their meetings are the fourth Tuesday of the month from February through November.
They will start renting the hall in May until October. Please see any member for details. Further projects and events will be listed. Please support them.
