Community Service

Community Service is an integral part of the Grange that allows local members to interact and serve the communities where they reside.
Granger members participate in big and small projects, partner with other community organizations, they fundraise for various causes within their community and nationally. Serving our communities whether it is helping our neighbor in need or bake sale to raise money for the local school, you can always count on the Grange being involved.
Our local Grangers recognize outstanding citizens in their communities, like fireman and policeman and support other Youth Organizations. This allows for Grange families and other citizens to participate in community service.
High Desert Grange has provided and will continue to provide community service projects.
Northern Nevada Veteran’s Memorial Cemetery Wreath Cleanup:
High Desert Grange reaches out to Goat and Sheep producers to help the cemetery save money on the disposal of the Christmas wreaths placed by Wreaths Across America. This keeps them out of the landfill and naturally recycles the wreaths.
Clean, camp and canoe: State park clean up, High Desert Grange once a year goes to Lahontan Lake for 3 days for a camp out and Clean up. The State Park rangers provide us with instructions on what they would like done, from cleaning camp areas, Trash clean up, to cleaning and making new camp sites.  All families are encouraged to come and help.
