February 2014 - Square Dance, "Farmageddon", "In Organic We Trust", Moveable Feast of Films, Kitchen faucet replacement

February 24th (Monday), 7 PM "In Organic We Trust" movie and discussion 
Most people eat organic food because they think it is healthier. But is organic food really better for us or just a marketing scam?
When corporations got into the "organic" business the meaning of "organic" labeling changed.

UNEXPECTED SURPRISES@#*!!!.....................

The latest repair, a new faucet
Old buildings like Quimper Grange hall are full of surprises. A faulty breaker turns into replacing the whole breaker box, placing a vapor barrier under the hall leads to discovery of powder post beetle damage,  a dripping faucet turns into a faucet replacement. We are slowly eliminating the need for unanticipated repairs however we aren't out of the woods yet.
The handful of us tasked with maintaining the hall are doing so on a voluntary basis and we truly appreciate the community support that makes it possible to fix these unexpected surprises.  
In December we sent out a donor appeal in the mail and only 17 people have responded so far.  Thank you donors! If you haven't  done so you can send a check of any amount to:
   Quimper Grange
   PO Box 1844
   Port Townsend, WA 98368
If you donate $35 or more you can rent our hall at a 25% discount for private events that do not charge an admission.

It's was great to see young families with grade school kids at our January dance. They will be the next generation of square dancers and keep the tradition alive.
