Public Relations News: Celebrate a Holiday

By Terri Fassio, Public Relations Co-Director

  JANUARY 1, 2023 --

The Public Relations Committee recently met and reviewed our contest offerings from the past years. We decided that since we did not receive many entries, we would limit our program for the next two years to one new contest.

Introducing... Celebrate a Holiday!

Whether you’re celebrating Easter, Christmas, Flag Day or even Chocolate Chip Cookie Lover’s Day, holidays can be fun to explore, and base themed Grange events, and even a Grange program, on. Whether your Grange has in-person, virtual, or hybrid celebrations, it means thinking outside of the box to show the impact of your Grange when utilizing holiday themes.

This is a great opportunity to highlight your Grange’s holiday achievements, raise awareness of your Grange’s mission, thank your members and community, and reveal exciting updates about your future holiday plans.

Submit a detailed written plan on how your Grange celebrated with a Holiday theme, and promoted your Grange through an event, program or more. Then write a synopsis of your Grange’s celebration (must be held within the last year). The holiday celebrated is the choice of the Grange.  There are no Holiday restrictions.

There will be three categories —

  1. Grange Holiday Events
  2. Grange Holiday Programs
  3. Other Grange Holiday Celebration

Submissions should be detailed and not just an abbreviated list, and there is no length restriction. Photos, clippings,  and  social media and website screenshots are encouraged. Submissions must include the category, Grange name and number, number of years hosting this celebration (i.e. first year or 50 years), and the name, phone number and email of person submitting the entry.

Email your Grange’s submission to publicrelations@ctstategrange.org . You can also USPS mail the submission to Robert Charbonneau, 102 Spring Street, Meriden, CT 06451. Deadline is October 1st.
