Spring days still can get chilly. Never fear, the Grange Hall now has a new heater! Thanks to the efforts of Scott, Allan, Steve, and Jerry, the basement was cleaned and the old oil furnace was removed to make way for the new electric furnace.
The Lookingglass Grange will be having a Work Party on April 12, 2015 at 1pm. Volunteers are needed to help clean floors, kitchen, and outdoor grounds, as well as clearing out old items from the basement and children’s room.
If you are ready to spring into action by planting some sprouts, Toni has a selection of pea starts for you. Come to the Lookingglass Farm Market on Friday between 3 and 6 pm to find pea starts and other great products.

Elee Hadley of Mulberry Orchard is helped by her brother, Claude. Here is what he has to say about the Rose Petal Jam he created:
From the West Rose of Le Chateau de Ste.-Rose to the orchards and gardens in Lookingglass Valley come the experience and craft-minded products of the Artistes de la Cuisine and Jardiniers, at Mulberry Orchard. Picturesque Mulberry Lane– it’s a “sweetheart”, with the old mulberry tree and wild roses still growing and blossoming year after year! Try sampling our unusual jams, jellies, relishes and pickles made from wild rose petals, native and cultivated fruits and berries and vegetables all gathered on our luscious green hillsides. The local hand-picked rose petals are best in the morning with beads of dew still on the blossoms, then lovingly massaged to bring out the sweet perfume of French roses. A tip of the old artiste’s burette to the Cècile Brünner Rose.
Two Grange Work Parties were held to remove old gutters and prep the roof to get ready for the installation of new gutters. Men and women of the Lookingglass Grange worked hard to improve the Grange Hall.
