The members of Nobleboro Grange thank you for a most enjoyable evening on July 27.
Everyone who attended (all 77 of them) went home chuckling over your stories.
Our fund raising venture was quite successful as we made a profit of over $200!
We were also pleased that the community's awareness of Nobleboro Grange was increased.
Most of those people had never been in a grange hall before!
We would encourage other granges to hold a similar event. It can be quite successful even when the number of members involved is small. We had about seven people actively involved in selling tickets and distributing posters.
A major factor in our large turnout was media coverage.
Most newspapers (daily & weekly) from Brunswick to Rockland as well as the Portland Press Herald and Kennebec Journal were contacted via email.
(Hint: If you present your information as a press release, there are no charges. I even sent a photo.)
At our next meeting we plan to discuss plans to have you come next summer. I'll be in touch.
Laurie McBurnie, incoming Master, Nobleboro Grange
