On Tuesday, January 31, the BES 3rd grade had a special visit. Two members representing the Grange in Brunswick and East Chatham, Mrs. Laurinda Gearing and Mrs. Sarah Barber stopped by each 3rd grade classroom to deliver a special gift to each student, their very own dictionary.
Mrs. Barber and Mrs. Gearing talked with the 3rd grade students about the Grange, a community minded organization that has been around since 1860. Membership in the Grange can start as young as 5 and has no age limit.
The members also talked about the Grange’s community events, family game nights, baking contests and community art projects.
The third grade Mountaineers were very excited to receive their own dictionaries. Thank you to the Grange for taking time each year to bring these wonderful gifts to our Mountaineers.
