About

What is the Grange?  Mt. Lookout Grange is part of a regional, state and national Grange organization, which is historically an agricultural community organization. In the summer of 2013, a handful of Mancosians re-started the group, after many years of dormancy. We are located in the beautiful Mancos Valley, in South West Colorado.
So, what does the Mt. Lookout Grange do?  We improve the economic well-being, social connectedness and quality of life for agricultural producers, and all in our rural community.
Why is this important?  Strong communities empower individuals to succeed and foster inter-generational collaboration and knowledge sharing. This links neighbors in all kinds of beneficial relationships and serves local causes. And, it’s fun!
How We Do This:
• Monthly Grange Gatherings, on the first Monday of each month, featuring presentations by local residents, sharing their knowledge & expertise.  Events are free and open to the public, though membership fees and donations are welcome and useful.
• Monthly Community Suppers, by donation (second Sunday of each month)
• Workshops teaching the rural arts and other skills
• Affordable space rental (only $10 per day, for paid members)
• Kitchen use programs for members
• Resource sharing through message boards and other communication mediums
• Social Events
• Programming for members, and the community at large
• Grassroots, nondenominational, nonpartisan approach to community building
What We Value:
• Family–in all its forms
• People of all ages, cultures, genders and beliefs
• Involvement, leadership, and initiative
• Learning and education
• Diversity of opinions and backgrounds
• Community Service
• Benefits to members
• Youth leadership and development
