Our Pomona (Piscataquis #11) attempts to collect a list of all grange events in the area and distribute them together to the media… When I received the list from Garland #76 this month, I was a bit overwhelmed by how much a part of “Garland Days” they are… almost wanted to call it “Garland Grange Days!” Obviously, this is a true celebration of community… and a wonderful example of a grange that is well-connected and identified with the community! I could resist sharing it and suggesting it might be a challenge for us all to find more ways to make similar connections!
Running together makes it work!
