A report on the Talent Night show was given by Tim Breen and Michelle Dyer-Fagan. Work is progressing on casting parts And creating skits. They are looking for anyone in the area to sign up to perform. All are welcome.
The Children's Play is scheduled for Sept. 21 and the theme will be either Peter Rabbit or Mother Goose Rhymes.
A spring cleaning work date is scheduled at the grange building on Sunday March 24th beginning at 10:00 AM. Building maintenance and minor repairs were discussed and Chester Bekier, Joe Kennedy, and Dave Pearson will inspect the building for any repairs needed.
Barbara Bekier is working on the menu for the first grange supper to be on April 13. Pork loin, vegetables, and salad are on the menu. The supper committee is looking for musicians to provide background music during the meal. Another idea discussed is to have a short presentation or entertainment after the meal free of charge.
It was decided to keep both the grange and the theatre organizations intact as separate organizations, continue using the Wayside Theatre name, and including the grange emblem with it.
Grace Lommel presented a press release schedule to get out to the public the show and supper dates well ahead of the scheduled event. There will be extensive press releases going out to all Central Maine newspapers, TheDailyME.com, and the local and state granges.
The next meeting will be on April 11 at 6PM at the grange.
