Granges Recognized for Community Service
Plumsteadville Grange and Bucks County Pomona Grange were recognized for their outstanding community service at the 142nd annual session of the Pennsylvania State Grange held in Reading, PA October 19-21, 2014. Both were presented with certificates of recognition from the National Grange as well as monetary awards to be used toward future community service projects.
Plumsteadville Grange took 4th place in the State among community Granges with more than 100 members. Service projects include operation of the farm market on the Grange grounds during the summer months, operation of the snack bar at the Middletown Grange Fair and monetary donations benefiting local deaf young people. The grange hall is also used by community groups including 4-H, Scouts, and the Bucks County Beekeepers’ Association.
Bucks County Pomona Grange placed first among Pomona (County level) Granges in PA. Bucks County Pomona Grange is comprised of Plumsteadville, Middletown and Edgewood community Granges. For 30 years Bucks County Pomona Grange has sold pizza at the Middletown Grange Fair. Funds raised have enabled establishment of an endowed scholarship at Delaware Valley College which will be known as the Bucks County Pomona Grange Scholarship in Memory of Harold Steeley. The first scholar to receive an award is expected to be named this fall. Additional monetary donations were made to local service organizations to help enable their continued service to our communities.
