  1. please send me the State Grange schedule for the sessions on Friday and Saturday, October 17 and 18 for my parents, Guy and Nancy Ellms. Thank you.

    • Betsy… Thanks for your comment. The schedule hasn’t been released yet, but we’ll post it as soon is it is. Note that State Session actually begins on Wednesday evening, October 15 with the annual banquet and there will be events on Thursday. We’ll be in touch!

  2. Is there an application for the State Conference? Is there a fee other than the banquets and lunches? What do I need to bring to take the sixth degree?

    • Thanks for your questions, Rebecca! It’s great that you are considering attending. Here are some short answers to your questions–more complete answers will be posted soon!

      There is a registration form required from non-delegates who plan to attend. Your subordinate Grange secretary should have a copy you can fill out and return, but I hope to have a “register online” capability for you within a day or two! There is no fee for attending.

      Sixth Degree Candidates need to know the passwords (fourth and fifth) which you can get from your Subordinate and Pomona Masters.

  3. What day of the week is the CWA getting together to work on crafts?

    • Hi Christine… I’m not sure a specific schedule has been set… you might contact Karen Flagg, CWA Director. Her phone number is 225-2328 and email address is Flagg_Karenatyahoodotcom  (Flagg_Karenatyahoodotcom)  . Thanks for posting!
