In honor of the Grange’s 150th birthday, the National Grange is starting the Grange Legacy Family Recognition program to honor those families who have five or more generations involved as Grange members.
“We give recognition to individuals who have been a Grange member for 25, 50, 75, 80, and even 90 years, and we want to recognize families and encourage the next generation to keep up with that and keep that legacy going,” said Huber.
Printable applications for recognition are available to be printed and mailed to National Grange, or an online application is also available. Applications should be mailed to the National Grange office. Anyone can nominate a family, including family members themselves, but they must include information as to whom of the family was a member in what Grange with clear five-generation or more lineage.
The first honorees will be recognized at National Convention in Spokane, Washington in November. The family will receive a certificate, and each family member can receive a copy upon request.
Webmaster note: The printable application is also now available on the Maine State Grange Website, Program Books and Information Tab.
