Danbury grange holding second fundraiser for fire victim

DANBURY — Blazing Star Grange of Danbury will hold their 2nd fundraiser for Dean Martin who lost his wife and home in a fire in February. The Grange's homemade chicken pie supper will be held on Saturday,  April 18 from 5-6:30 p.m. at the Grange hall, 15 North Road in Danbury. Along with the pie, there will be rolls, cole slaw, dessert and drinks all for the price of $9 for adults and $4 for kids. Made from scratch, the chicken pie menu has been so well received that the grange now holds a chicken pie supper twice a year.

Leftover items from the yard sale held for Martin on March 28 will be available by donation during the supper.

The Grange, active in Danbury since 1875, is noted for community service as well as having a historic hall housing a set of stage curtains painted by Edgar Foster of Manchester. For information, contact Donna at 768-5579.
