Stevenson Grange #121 meets 9/02

Stevenson Grange #121 will hold its regular 1st Monday meeting on September 2nd, at 6:30 p.m., at the Hegewald Center.  For Grange information, please call Mary Repar, Master, at 509.427.7153.

The Stevenson Grangers are busy this summer with gleaning from local orchards and gardens, with gleanings going to the local food bank and Skamania Seniors;  and, we are also helping with the Stevenson Farmers Market and the Stevenson Community Gardens.  The Grange information booth at the Skamania Fair garnered a 1st place ribbon, too!  There are always enough projects to do and all that is needed are more hands!  At 16 members, the Stevenson Grange is growing but we can always use more members.

At the 124th State Grange Convention, in Ocean Shores, WA, during the last week of June, Stevenson Grange #121 stood fast for the labeling of Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs), and for the Equal Rights Amendment becoming part of the Washington State Constitution (WA state passed the ERA but 8 more states are needed to reach the 3/4ths required for a constitutional amendment to become law).  Both of these resolutions are now part of the Grange Legislative Handbook.  The Grange has always stood for women's rights and continues to do so.
