Program Books and Information


DocumentsThis page is constantly undergoing revision… you’ll find available documents, books, and program information listed alphabetically by committee or office… if you are looking for a document, this is the place to start. We’ll be consolidating and trying to make this very user-friendly. Also, note that program books, contest information and forms are being replaced as received–there will be lots of changes during the month of October.

Note that information regarding conferences is quickly located on the Conferences Page.

Beyond the Grange…

  • Here’s a link to the NPR (National Public Radio) Training website. “We created this site for the journalists working in public media but kept it open for all to learn from. In this constantly changing media world…” While this may seem a bit “over the top” for the average Granger working on communications and publicity, there’s some “good stuff” here like “A Guide to Making Awesome Photos…” ideas about headlines and social media.

Maine State Grange Bulletins–note these require legal size paper for printing. The most recent issue is at the top of the list. Contributions must be received by the 15th of the month and the Bulletin is released by the Communications Department within a day or two of that deadline.

  • Grange Issue of the Courier Newsletter The Courier is the History Journal of the Bethel Historical Society and this particular issue (Vol. 34, No. 1 2010) is all about the Grange! Have you wondered how CWA started and what it was originally called? Did you know that the earliest appearance of the Grange in Maine actually predated the founding of the first subordinate Grange? Have you ever wondered who was the first woman master of a subordinate grange? You’ll find the answers–and a whole lot more–in this newsletter.

  5. Hi, I’m trying to find how to do our own grange brochure. I’m not very good with computers I know a little bit. I read somewhere most computers have a template where you can design a brochure but I don’t know where. Can some one help me? We’re trying to upgrade our grange Also, how do I get anything on our own grange website? Thank You.

    • Sherrilee… I’ve replied to you directly with some thoughts, suggestions, and information. Congratulations on your continuing effort to “upgrade” your Grange… and thanks for your inspiration. I’ll use my email to you as the basis for a post to the site with suggestions for all Granges who want to have a brochure available.

  6. My mother-in-law Winona Spaulding who was the state junior director many years ago has passed and we would like to donate money that people have sent to the junior grange in her memory. Is this possible? Who would I send it to?
