A month of Saturday Activities
Blazing Star Grange celebrates National Grange Month with an event at the Grange Hall every Saturday in April. On April 7, the last winter market of this season runs from 9 AM to1PM.   
Whether at the market to support local businesses, to visit friends, doing lunch or breakfast at the Blazing Star Bistro, customers love a Saturday at the market!

The following Saturday, the theme changes slightly from food and crafts to poetry and pastries when the Grange partners with the Friends of the Danbury Library for a night of Poetry.  The venue is open to all–to read, recite or even make a skit from their favorite poem. The night begins at 7PM and ends with an assortment of delicious pastries. Participants encouraged to join the venues but being part of the audience is needed as well.  

Week number three brings on the last of the third Saturday by order pickup markets and workshops.  Order by Thursday April 19 at noon from to pick up your market order on April 21t   from 9 AM to noon. Downstairs, Danbury Grows will have workshops on gardening while upstairs, Marie Polizzi is being brought back for a second Stamp Camp.  . The class is $10 for 3 cards, everything included, although it is helpful if you could bring your own paper adhesives. Preregistration is required by calling Marie at 860-235-2429.  

The day isn’t done—come back that evening for some comfort food  at our chicken pot pie supper. Served from 5 to 6:30 PM. Take time to buy tickets for the Dutch Auction which is sponsored by the United Church of Danbury.  Lucky tickets will be drawn at the end of the supper. You do not need to be present to win.

The final Saturday of April brings on a bread baking lesson for children grades k through 5.  After learning to bake bread, they will take some home to enjoy with their family and share half with the Danbury Food Pantry.  The event is free and will run from 9AM to 1PM. Registration required to make sure we have enough supplies.

With April over, we have yet one more Saturday to fill on May 5.  We’re excited to host a hand bell concert featuring the Granite State Ringers.
