The Castle Hill Grange Hall Preservation Society will be selling candy bars again this winter. It has always been a great fund-raiser thanks to everyone’s sweet tooth out there.
The society is looking for volunteers to 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. Dues for a working member are $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 are requesting that anyone who has knowledge of a veteran who served in the military between 1903 to the present to write or call Natalie Maynard, 2877 State Road, Castle Hill, Maine 04757 or 764-4878. They need names, dates, and any information you can give them so they can place the names on a sign or in a book in the future. The person must have been a resident of Castle Hill at the time of service.
Their next meeting will be Feb. 24, 2009.
