Grange Notes, 7/7/13--new windows, summer picnic and projects

Grange windows installed!
Friends planning more projects—join us on 7/17
Grange Picnic on July 20th
Champlain Valley Festival—restarting July 19-21
Grates for the porches
Grange business meetings will resume in September

Grange windows installed!: The Friends of the Capital City Grange Hall have completed another useful project, getting new replacement windows installed in the whole upstairs, plus the east side of the lower/basement level. Combined with the new windows on the west side of the lower level in 2006, we now have all new, double insulated vinyl windows everywhere in the Hall.
Equally important, we no longer have to use sticks, metal chair parts, etc. to hold up the windows. We no longer have to raise and lower the storm windows, in addition to the inside sash. Fans can no longer fall out the windows, since screens can stay up all the time. We anticipate savings in our heat bill, too, with better tightness as well as the insulated glass.
Thanks to the grant-writing team at the FCCGH—Nancy Turner, with help from Patty Giavara and others, put together the Friends' successful grant applications to the VT State Employees' Credit Union, and the VT Recreational Facilities grant programs. In combination with the great community support for the floor project which provided the required matching funds, these grants helped us fund the window project in addition to putting us over the top to fund the new flooring.
Thanks also to Mike Cetrangolo, the Northfield Falls-based contractor who put in the replacement windows, working between the rain showers. We're pleased with his work!
I'll attach a few pictures of the windows to this email, check them out, and take a look next time you are in the Grange Hall.

Friends planning more projects—join us on 7/17: As you can perhaps tell, this sort of project doesn't happen in a vacuum. The Friends are taking the lead in planning the repairs and improvements which our beloved Hall needs. We/they are focusing right now on projects that will meet the requirements of the Fire Marshal to permit more than 49 people in the basement/lower level.
We do have a legal capacity of 277 upstairs, but need to make more improvements to the front and back stairways to the basement level to increase our legal occupancy down there.
The Friends' next meeting will be on Wednesday, July 17th at 6:30 PM. We'd love to expand the “core group” that has been working on building issues, let me know if you can join us.

Grange Picnic on July 20th: Our Grange will be holding a picnic on the 3rd weekend of July, before the CDU dance with Susan Kevra calling, and Dave Langford and Peter Barnes playing. Alison Forrest has volunteered to help coordinate food; please email her at: feedkidswellathotmail [dot] com or me at the usual swartztim15atgmail [dot] com to let us know if you will be coming, and to let us know what you can bring to share.
We're looking for people to bring grilles, maybe a shelter in case of rain, and of course lots of tasty foods! We'll have people who like meat, and people who like vegetables, and people who like both; plus salads, breads, pasta and whatever you like to prepare. Alison is organizing “proteins, buns and condiments” for the grilling operation, and Merry and I will provide a small grill at least. More would be welcome!
If we can get some people who want to work on some projects earlier than the potluck picnic (which will start about 6:00), we can get on some projects like cleaning out the accumulated dust in the cold-air returns under the benches, cleaning the blinds on the “new” windows, etc. Join us starting at 1:00 on the 20th. Let me know if you can pitch in.

Champlain Valley Festival—restarting July 19-21: A dedicated group of volunteers is working on reviving the CVFF, on the weekend of July 19-21. The Festival was not able to be held last year, as they paid off debts from the past. This year, the CVFF will be held at Rock Point School in Burlington. Their schedule is not yet completely set, but they have commitments from Frost and Fire and Pete Sutherland, with more to come. They have decided to not schedule a contra dance event on Saturday evening, recognizing that the Montpelier dance is well-established, but will schedule other types of entertainment for non-dancers. By next year, we may be able to better coordinate CDU and CVFF schedules. Check out www.cvfest.org for the latest information on the renaissance of the festival—it's fragmentary at this point, but keep checking!

Grates for the porches: When I last wrote Grange Notes, I thought I had a carpenter lined up to install shoe-cleaning grates in the two entry porches, but he fell through—not through the porch floor, but the commitment process failed. I'd really like to have someone take on this project, rather than have to do it myself! Thanks to the Friends' fund-raising, we can afford the grates themselves, just looking for a volunteer installer who could cut out the existing flooring, add some simple framing, and put in new grates. Please give me a call!

Grange business meetings will resume in September: As you may have noticed, we stop holding our monthly meetings on the first Saturday of the month. We recognize the reality of everyone's desire to take advantage of summer weekend time! You can look for reminders in my emails or just put September 7th on your calendar—this year, the first Saturday is not on Labor Day weekend. And our regular potluck dinners will start then as well. Keep in touch!

Microsoft has been coy about revealing the number off
Surface tablets that it has sold thus far. However, they require you to put up your home as
collateral, so you risk losing your home if you make late payments or fail
too make them at all. There are actuaoly windows made from several materials, whiich include fiberglass, light weight aluminum,
or vinyls are a variety oof them.
