Our Service and Community Activities

We participate in a variety of Community Service, Fellowship, Family and Youth activities throughout the year. Our work centers around Grange values and seeks to improve our local communities and ourselves as individuals. Some projects are in coordination with State and National Grange. Others are causes that we hold dear at the local level. You are welcome to join us as a fellow Granger and work alongside us. Take a look at the projects we are currently working on.
