Grange to celebrate 100 years

Yesterday was way too busy, and I only managed to cover the candidates forum, not getting to Cathy Wakeman's Dryden Town Talk. Unfortunately, the first event she mentions, the Bill Tiberio Group's visit to Dryden to work with students and play a jazz concert, already happened last night.

The next event, though, is this weekend:

The Dryden Grange will celebrate its centennial year with an open house from 2-5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 29 at the Neptune Hose Company hall on North Street.

Granges have had a hard time around here for the past few decades, and their continuing work here is impressive. I'm hoping that we'll see a resurgence of agriculture here in Dryden, much like that going on further west, and that the Grange will help for another century. (Unfortunately I'll be at a wedding Saturday, and can't go.)

This weekend will also see the Dryden High School Student Council's Dash for Cash, a 5K run starting at Dryden Elementary. If you'd like to plan further ahead, the Sertoma Soccer Spaghetti Dinner will be October 12th in the Dryden High School cafeteria from 5:30pm to 7:30pm.

She also reports that the Southworth Library book sale raised more than $3000, which will help them get a new copier and more resources.

There was also an article on efforts to create a community radio station. I'd love to hear a regular show on Dryden - there's more than enough news.

Today's Monitor includes some Dryden DWIs.
