The Copake Grange Cupcake Celebration
June 13th 11am-1pm
There were 300 cupcakes from 18 bakers and they were delicious! That's what our judge said. It was hard to decide the award winners. The true "winner" of this event was the Roe Jan community. More that 50 people showed up for the event and the fun was infectious. After more than a year of worrying about infectious COVID, it was nice to see good cheer spreading instead.
The Cupcake Celebration was a great success. Because of the generosity of our bakers and the strong sales (many of the buyers said keep the change), the Grange now has additional funds for repairing Grange Hall.
2020 - A Challenging Year
Covid-19 prevented the Copake Grange from conducting its usual lineup of events. Plays, open mic nights, dance parties, art classes, and our famous community dinners had to be canceled. In spite of the pandemic, with the help of generous donations from foundations and donors, the Grange created innovative programs that followed all the Covid-19 guidelines. A theater program let children learn the ropes of putting on a show with distancing and masks in an outdoor setting. Similarly, art classes for kids were held under tents in the shade. A drive-in movie was set up and the community was invited for free showings. More than 100 individuals participated in these activities turning a summer of isolation into a memorable time.
Thanks to the foundations and donors who helped us:
Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation
Rheinstrom Hill Community Foundation
Bank of Greene County
Reiner the Dog
Take a look at the happy faces of those who participated in
the Copake Grange's summer activities.
Even with masks on you can see they are having a good time!
