East Sangerville Grange has events for day and night

By Joni Averill

The 34th East Sangerville Grange Holiday Craft Fair will be held 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 7, at the Grange Hall.

“The 100-year-old Grange Hall, situated high on a hill in East Sangerville, offers the prefect location for a fun-filled day,” reports Patrick Myers.

Your $1 admission benefits the Grange Building Fund, and you will find everything from watercolors to jewelry.

Lunch begins at 10 a.m., featuring quiche, croissants, salad and soup.

For information about the fair, call Bob Winters at 564-7259.

And “to conclude the festivities” of the day, Myers wrote, the East Sangerville Grange’s 16th annual coffeehouse season begins with “Amerinuche, a unique, high-energy, gypsy-jazz group” at 7 that evening at the Grange Hall.

Admission is $10 in advance or $12 the night of the show, and tickets are available at Mr. Paperback in Dover-Foxcroft.
