Dear Grange Member
This year feels like none other with the mounting losses of life and property by devastating natural disasters throughout our nation.
Members in Florida, Texas and friends in Puerto Rico and other states are still recovering from hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria. This morning, we are continuing to get updates on losses suffered by those in California. Some of our Brothers and Sisters have lost homes and farmlands, which burned to the ground in quick-moving wildfires and many other Halls and homes are in the path of yet-uncontained blazes.
The California State Grange is spearheading efforts to help people affected connect with loved ones and shelter livestock in safe spaces. Several Granges are being used as shelters.
We will keep you posted as to efforts and potential needs of our Grange family and thank you in advance for your thoughts, prayers, and kindness at this time.
Betsy E. Huber
