The members are getting busy with Spring clean-up and maintenance on the Grange Hall in Vinton. Since our members recognize the value of sharing a meal with each other we have returned to the tradition of holding a Pot-Luck meal prior to the monthly meetings. We welcome anyone interested in looking into Grange to stop by on the 1st Wednesday of each month. Call for information and come check us out! 707-330-3601.
For our musing each week, it might be helpful to explain what Grange is. It is so much more than just the big white building on Hwy 70 in Vinton. Grange is a Fraternal Organization whose purpose is to help Farmers and other rural people by: 1) Providing them the tools and resources to increase their political and economic clout. 2) Encourage continued education and personal growth for both the members and the community. 3) Supporting the members and community through charitable work. We will explore these topics in upcoming Happenings. In closing, let me leave you with the Grange Motto, “In essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; in all things, charity."
