Grange 'Going Green'
Region - posted Feb, 26 2014
REGION - The Hillstown Grange is ’Going Green’ on March 8, from 8 to 11 a.m., by planning a ‘green’ pancake breakfast using real plates, cups, forks, and napkins made from recycled paper. There will be ‘green’ toppings and ‘green’ tea for Saint Patrick’s Day. Plates will be washed, and the waste will be composted; the goal is for nothing in the garbage can. Take a break from the winter blahs and come relax and enjoy pancakes, sausage, bottomless cups of coffee, tea and juice for just $5. Extra sausage just 25-cents each; children under 10 just $3. Special “kid-cakes” will be available with green chips. Then, to continue going green, along with breakfast a garden sit and chat will be held with a freehill seed exchange to start preparing for the start of the 2014 gardening season. If you have any old or extra seeds, seed catalogs, gardening books, bring them with you to share and to add to your garden this year. The Agricultural Committee plans to announce this year’s special gardening contests and free seeds will be available. Great for novice or first time gardeners to learn from the old pros. The Hillstown Grange is located at 617 Hills St., East Hartford. The Grange is located in the Hillstown corner of East Hartford, Glastonbury, and Manchester since 1888. The Grange is the oldest agricultural group in the United States. For more information, call Frank at 860-690-2845 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
