at any time during the 3-hour session.  Contact Mary Repar, Grange Master, for more information, at tel:  509.427.7153, or e-mail repar@saw.net.

This is the only plant clinic that we will have right now.  Our Wilderness Survival 101 went well  on Saturday, April 26th!  Seventeen folks, ranging in age from 14 to senior gave up their beauty sleep in order to learn how to basically survive in the wilderness!  John Carlson did a great job and his fire starting and building a basic shelter demos were wonderful!!  Full house and interest shown in having a longer session!  Next Year!
