Spring is on its way!! That wonderful time of year when everything is renewing itself, and growing with enthusiasm!
We encourage you to extend this spirit of renewal and enthusiasm to our Grange organization. I challenge each of you to make it a personal goal to bring a new member into our Grange family this Spring.
With the same expectation of satisfaction that you have when you prepare soil and plant seedlings, we encourage you to personally promote the Grange and invite friends and acquaintances to come to visit your Grange. Help them personally to experience the fun and satisfaction that Grange membership provides.
The month of May will bring Memorial Services to many Granges. Let’s honor our members lost over the winter months with the best memorial of all–a vibrant and energized membership that includes several new members.
Now is the time to start. Try something innovative this year! A friend of mine is going to buy (or pick) three of the first daffodils she sees. She is going to attach a tag to each one that says “from your friends at __________ Grange,” and give one to each of the first three people she talks to about her Grange.
While discussing this idea, we decided that it was a winner all around:
- everyone likes cheery daffodils
- everyone likes to be invited to a special occasion
- everyone will appreciate a friendly invitation accompanied by a daffodil!!
This sounds like a great start to Spring to me!
Happy Spring to you all!
