We’re all aware of the fact that these days, it’s more important than ever for us to prioritize gathering in community. After all that time of social distancing, remote work, and virtual gatherings, the need for human connection and support is more apparent than ever. In 2023, it feels great to make a conscious effort to come together and build a sense of community, and one way to do that is by joining us at a Grays River Grange meeting.
All are welcome, and because we know that community is essential for human survival and well-being, we can feel that being together with others is very good for us on so many levels. We are social creatures, and our mental, emotional, and physical health is heavily influenced by the connections we make.
Being part of a community provides us with a sense of belonging, purpose, and support that is difficult to find elsewhere. In fact, studies have shown that individuals who are part of a community experience lower rates of depression, anxiety, and stress, and report higher levels of life satisfaction.
We’d love to see you at the Grange, so feel free to stop by and say hi.
The Grays River Grange is pleased to announce our upcoming meeting, which will be held on Tuesday, February 28th at 6:30 PM at the Grays River Grange Hall.

Happy New Year from the Grays River Grange to you and yours.
We’re having our first meeting of the year, and our installation of officers, and we want you to know that you are welcome to stop by, say hello and share in the festivities of a Grange meeting. There’s food, laughter and camaraderie. Poetry, story, and song. It’s a great place to be.
The song says, “It’s a good thing to be a Granger”, and it is indeed, welcome 2023!
Hey everyone, we have a Grays River Grange meeting coming up on Tuesday, November 8th at 6:30 PM.
All are welcome to join us as we gather and share in camaraderie and fellowship. When the work of the day has ended, we have an opportunity to be together, to discuss natural observances of the world around us, and issues of the day.
Visitors are always welcome, and we’d love to hear about what’s happening in your garden, community, on your farm, in your neighborhood, and anything else you’d like to bring to the table.
Being a part of the Washington State Grange is a wonderful thing. “The People’s Voice of Washington” is what they say at The Washington State Grange website, and it’s true. We really do have a voice.
At our last Grange meeting we shared food together with our scrumptious potluck, and it’s kind of fun to think about the fact that people have been gathering and sharing food together in this same building since 1902!
We talk, we laugh, sharing stories and camaraderie with each other.
You are always welcome to join us, and feel free to bring a friend if you like.
