The Grange is for animal lovers, crafters, community-minded citizens and families. Children can join the Junior Grange at 4 ½ years old. Anyone 13 ½ years of age or older can join what is called the subordinate, or community, Grange.
Grange programs include the Youth Fair Team, Youth Activities, Grange Expo contests (including arts, crafts, photography and horticulture), Legislative Activities and Community Service. The Grange Hall is used as a community meeting place and is available for use by groups and individuals for a donation. Members can use the Hall free of charge. To learn more, all are welcome to the open house. For more information, call Ed Komski at (760) 310-6500.
