Grangers To Convene Nov. 23
Helen Peterson, a retired school librarian shared her experiences “Moving during the Pandemic” to Ross Grange members at their Nov. 9 meeting. She had made plans to move from her large home to a retirement apartment before COVID-19 hit. She found various legal papers from years ago including a handwritten property deed and a college diploma. Household items, clothing and books were difficult to dispose of as most places usually accepting them were closed. She gave 300 childrens books to the pre-school at her church. Since many offices were not open, it took some time to make address changes. A new freezer was ordered, but still has not been delivered (stores just can’t get them). Nephews from out of state came with a pickup truck to help get rid of things. Friends came with boxes to help pack. She was very thankful for the support of many friends who helped with this transition in trying times. Lunch was served before the meeting. The meaning of Veterans Day, formerly Armistice Day, was explained by Betty Wakefield, lecturer. The Christmas party was discussed, with a cookie exchange planned for Dec. 14. The next meeting will be Nov. 23 at the Falcon’s Nest Banquet Hall with Wakefield arranging for a 1 p.m. lunch. Members and friends should bring items for “Toys for Tots” to this meeting. Brian Papalia from the Chautauqua County Humane Society will be the speaker at 2 p.m.
