Now that Halloween has passed, we can all begin settling in to winter and the fast-approaching holidays.
The second Lorane Movie Night of the season will be held on Saturday, November 10.
A soup, delicious bread and salad supper will be served at 6:00 p.m. This one will be “pie night,” so be sure to bring a pie to share! Then at 6:45 p.m., a silent, short cliffhanger—“Perils of Pauline,” will be shown followed by door prizes and popcorn refills. At 7:30 p.m., everyone can settle in for the featured movie, “Hidden Figures,” a 2016 biographical drama about Katherine Johnson, one of the human computers at NASA whose skill with mathematics enabled the early U.S. space program to take flight. Kevin Costner plays the NASA supervisor who recognizes her genius.
The next spaghetti dinner and bingo night at the Lorane Grange is scheduled for Friday, November 16 starting with dinner at 5:30 p.m.
Crow Grange’s dinner and bingo nights are on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of each month.
The fundraiser for Cody Tripp, held at the Crow Grange recently, was reported to be a huge success. The amount of participation and love shown was very much appreciated. It’s heart-warming to see how generous our small, rural communities can be.
The Crow High School Band leaves on Thursday, November 8, for its trip to Washington, D.C. to participate in the Parade of Heroes. The band was honored to receive an invitation to represent Oregon in the Veterans’ Day celebration in our nation’s capital. Loranian Mark Simonsen, a student at Crow High School, has been given the honor of playing Taps at all three memorial celebrations on Saturday, November 10.
A fun, free “Mini-Pie Making” class is being offered on Saturday, November 17 from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. by the Creswell Grange. Learn how to make delicious and decorative apple, cherry, peach and chocolate cream mini-pies for the holidays. These can be adapted for other varieties, too. The classes are open to the public, but you are asked to pre-register so enough baking supplies will be on hand for all who attend. Contact Dottie at 541-895-2155 to register.
This year’s first annual Art in the Country festival, held in early August on the grounds of the Applegate Regional Theater, was considered a success, so the organizing committee, of which I’m part, has decided that the 2019 edition of it will be a 2-day event and will once again feature quality artists and authors. It will also have a beer and wine garden, food vendors and a kids’ zone. There will be live music on the outside performance stage; author readings and short plays will take place inside the theater, away from the other distractions. So, mark your calendars early for July 27 and 28, 2019. We’re getting an early start this year with signing up authors, artists, vendors and entertainers, so if you’re interested in participating in any of the entertainment, displays or booths, be sure to give Vicki Sourdry a call at 541-935-3636 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
