What is the Grange?

One of the most difficult questions to answer is what is the Grange. Ask a hundred members and you’ll very likely get a hundred different answers. We each see the Grange differently, depending on your expectations of the organization. It is a fraternal organization, with its ritual steeped in agriculture. It is a family organization, with membership starting at age 5.
It is an organization that was among the first to recognize the role of women, by admitting them on an equal basis with men.
It is a community service organization, doing service for others has always been a key element of a Grange.
It is a social organization, providing opportunities for all members of a community to come together. It is an organization that provides for opportunities for young people to learn leadership skills.
It is a non-partisan organization, as our by-laws prohibit partisan discussion and actions.
It is a nondenominational organization.
It is an organization that believes in the education of its members.
It is an organization the strives to develop a higher manhood and womanhood of its members.

Welcome to the Grange!
