Movie


SPOTLIGHT - Tells the riveting true story of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Boston Globe investigation that would rock the city and cause a crisis in one of the world's oldest and most trusted institutions. When the newspaper's tenacious "Spotlight" team of reporters delves into allegations of abuse in the Catholic Church, their year-long investigation uncovers a decades-long cover-up at the highest levels of Boston's religious, legal, and government establishment, touching off a wave of revelations around the world. SPOTLIGHT is a tense investigative dramatic-thriller, tracing the steps to one of the biggest cover-ups in modern times.  © Open Road Rating: R

CAPITAL APPEAL UPDATE

    On behalf of the Friends of the Quonochontaug Grange (FOTQG), we want to thank you for your interest and support of the Grange facility.  A number of you have positively responded to our Capital Appeal Drive.   We are pleased to announce that to date over $19,000 has been raised.  From these funds we have been able to successfully accomplish these goals:

  1. Replaced worn tables with new lighter tables.

  2. Installed an up-to-date Audio Visual System including a new sound system, digital projector and power screen.

  3. Installed new sound attenuation panels on the ceiling and walls of the Upper Level meeting room making the room less noisy and allowing for more pleasant acoustics.

        Since we have fallen short of our funding goal, we are unable to purchase additional cushioned chair or start the planning process to retro fit the old kitchen to create a “serving kitchen.”

            Our goal is ambitious and requires a major a financial commitment.  FOTQG will seek grants and other sources of institutional funding to support this goal. To underscore that effort, we must demonstrate that the core financial support for these improvements comes from the community that will benefit most from the upgrades.  And here is where you come in.

Over a two-year period we are asking for pledges and one-time gifts.   Every gift is welcome no matter the amount. Of course, major leadership gifts will help us immensely and we are happy to speak with you about such a gift.

As always, we sincerely appreciate all of the support we have received from our community. We hope you will consider a donation to support his dedicated campaign.  For a donation form, Click Here.

Sincerely,


Ron Meneo, Bill Meyer, Roy E. Jacobsen, Tom Doyle, Ann Bettinger DiRobbio
