Sell those tickets and let me know if you can help. This has the potential of being a very worthwhile event.

We have had another loss in our Grange family. Esther Nelson went to her heavenly home this past month. Condolences are also sent to many Grange families who have lost loved ones recently. There are also many members with health issues who need our prayers.
Enjoy the beautiful weather, the perfect growing conditions, and stay safe in all your experiences. As ever, Laurel
