About broadhollowil1806

I am Presiden (Master) of my Grange, Broad Hollow Grange #1806. I grew up through the Junior Grange years, was active as a Youth member, and am active in my Grange. I feel the Grange is a great organization with a variety of activities that meets the needs of all ages and interests. I like that it's a family organization and the whole family can attend and participate together. It's fun, educational, there's a variety of activities, you have leadership opportunities, and you can serve your community through the Grange. Your Grange can choose whatever projects you want to make a better community. The Grange is a grass-roots organization wtih ideas, etc. starting at the local Granges. The Grange has made me a better person and has given me many opportunities I would neverhave dreamed of.
