Thank you!

We had an absolutely amazing showing for our annual Burger Booth at the Stanwood-Camano Fair!  This year we decided to shake things up a little and boy did it look absolutely amazing!  Our volunteers were all dressed in matching t-shirts thanks to the generosity of SNAP! Custom Clothing in Seattle!  We had a new banner and signage as well!  We looked, felt and acted SHARP!  A special thank you to all of our volunteers from the community, the Pomona Grange (Thank you ladies!) and to Bible Baptist Church for so generously stepping in and covering a half day all on their own!  Also for our own Grange members who spent weeks planning and pouring their hearts and time into such a successful event!  Rah, Rah, Rah! Go Stilly 1058!!

We have a nice step forward on fundraising for outreach in the coming year.  But we’re not done yet – keep your eyes posted for out latest and greatest adventures.  Just a couple hints! Halloween is coming….  And another hint… Johnny Cash in concert in San Quentin.  Oh, that wasn’t a hint – we just plain ol’ told you! We’re so excited about this one we can’t hold it in!  And unlike San Quentin when the concert’s over we won’t hold you in!!

The Fair is coming, the Fair is coming!!!

We are gearing up for the 2012 Stanwood-Camano Fair!

This is a very exciting time of year for the Stillaguamish Grange.  We have a long history of running a hamburger booth during the fair.  Our burgers and fries are second to none if you ask us and we suggest you stop by and try them for yourself!  Not only will your belly thank you, the proceeds of our food booth fund the Grange outreach for the year.  Most notably the purchase of dictionaries for the 3rd graders in the Stanwood School District.  We have done this for generations and hope to be able to continue this tradition with your help!

If you wish to volunteer your time or gain more information about the Stillaguamish Grange # 1058 please feel free to reach out, we would love to have you join us!
