Ross Grange

To Meet Monday

Everyone should have a list of medications and health care information, along with a non-hospital “Do Not Resuscitate” form, if needed, where volunteers can gain access to them. She answered many questions from the group. It was noted June is National Safety Month. Members voted a donation to Gerry Fire Department in appreciation of Fairbanks’ presentation. Correspondence included thank-yous from Makayla Keefe, Gordon and Mary Carlberg, and an invitation to participate in the Falconer Farmers’ Market. Bob Goodwin thanked members for helping with the float for Memorial Day parades. Pictures of Grange activities were on display. The next meeting will be Monday at the Falcon’s Nest Banquet Hall.
