The Grange 150 years and beyond?
The family - the grassroots of American ideals. We live in a great
young country. The basis of our country's grandeur starts in the
home, reaches out into our local community and from thereon
throughout our counties, states and our unified nation. The Grange
has always recognized the strength of the family. Our organization
historically has welcomed the entire family to join, debate, vote,
advocate and grow with us. If more families would join the Grange,
many of the troublesome ailments of today's society would disappate
.......not because of some magic tonic, but simply by living the
good lessons learned inside the guidelines of the Patrons of
Husbandry, our Grange. As
a Grange member you possess a power that could enrich the lives of
many families. You, as a Grange member hold the remedy in your
hands.....literally. Go to your grassroots, find a family that does
not yet belong to the Grange, extend your hand in friendship and
with enthusiasm. Get a grip on your pen to write that family a
prescription that works... an
Application of Membership to JOIN THE GRANGE.
The Meriam Webster dictionary defines
the handshake as a noun. The
handshake is a friendly human act simply defined as the art
of grasping someone's right hand with your right hand and moving it
up and down. Extending your hand can say, hello, farewell,
congratulations or welcome!
Many of our Granges are the center hub of community
services and activities. Patrons equip yourself with that powerful
perscription, extend the hand of friendship, harvest the completed
membership applications you have gleaned. Maintain the welcome mat
at the entrance to our halls, keep extending your hand, get a grip
on your pen, it will soon evole into the Grange Grip and our halls
will be bustling with strong families with good Grange Values.
