The Valley Grange will be sponsoring the upcoming Santa’s Breakfast at the Valley School on Saturday, Dec. 3 from 10 a.m. to Noon.
A beautiful quilt will be raffled off during the craft fair that day. Craft Fair hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and the drawing will be held around 3 p.m. but you do not need to be present to win. Tickets are $1 each and all proceeds go toward community service projects that the Valley Grange sponsors.
Besides the Santa’s Breakfast, the Grange also sponsors the Community Easter Egg Hunt, the Dictionary Project, Box Tops for Education and helps support the Valley Community Fair and other youth organizations in the Valley Community. The Communities in Progress group also works hand in hand with these events.
If you’re not planning to come to the craft fair and want to take a chance on the quilt, tickets can be purchased from any grange member or at the Valley School Office or call Theresa Carr at 509-937-2635 or Mary Ann Wolsky at 509-937-2486. Quilt was made and designed by Kathy Conway and Mary Ann Wolsky.
Here’s a little bit about what the “Grange Association” is about:
The Grange is truly a “Grass Roots” organization. Communities across the state and nation are impacted by the positive contributions of Granges. Some Granges support outside youth programs such as FFA, 4-H, scouts and local fairs. Many Grangers support their local schools and food banks as well. The partnership between the Grange and community creates an impact of building our communities and making them a better place for our citizens.
In addition to members, perhaps the biggest asset of the Grange is the Grange halls in so many communities. Our Grange halls provide a location for the community to gather together to discuss and debate the issues of concerns. From weddings to funerals and everything in between, our Grange halls provide a gathering place for our community members to come together.
Nationally and state-wide, the Grange has a rich history. With Grange leadership, we can continue enriching the lives of our citizens as we work together for the benefit of agriculture and rural America.
To those who are already Grange members, thank you for your commitment to the Grange and your community. To those who are not yet members of the Grange, you are encouraged to consider joining us as we work together for the benefit of your community and rural America. The impact we have can and will make our communities stronger and a better place for all. Call Grange Master
