Grange Meeting Tuesday, February 14th – Meeting starts at 6:30 PM

Have you ever wondered about the history of the Grays River Grange?

There is a great deal of warmth, meaningful connections, community, and so much more.

The Grays River Grange is a community organization located in Grays River, Washington. The Grange was originally founded in the late 1800s to serve as a social and educational center for rural communities. It is open to the public, and all are welcome.

The Grays River Grange was established in 1914 and has been serving the community for over a century.

Throughout its history, the Grange has played an important role in supporting local agriculture, education, and community events. For example, the Grange has hosted educational classes, community dances, and political forums, among other events.

In addition to its community activities, the Grays River Grange has also been involved in advocacy efforts on behalf of farmers and rural communities. For example, the Grange has worked to support policies that promote sustainable agriculture and rural development.

Today, the Grays River Grange continues to be an active and vibrant organization and is a beloved part of the Grays River community.

If you’re interested in learning more about the history of the Grays River Grange or would like to get involved in its activities, you can contact us anytime, or feel free to stop by and visit at our next meeting.

Free Goats to Good Home

I need your help to rehome four female retired pet creamery goats located in Rosburg. Possibly someone who already has goats and would like to add a few more? They require a shelter and fenced area to graze. They are fed cattle feed and hay daily. They need fresh water daily. After five years, I can not continue to take care of these goats by myself. Currently a neighbor boy feeds them daily. You are welcome to come visit the sweet goats, just let me know.

Rural Health Report 2020

Disparities are common for rural residents in all areas of life, including all things health related from birth to death.

The National Grange recently prepared the Rural Health Report 2020 that gives a thorough review pre-COVID, during COVID and just how hard we could fall after the pandemic is over.

The report highlights systematic issue of rural health disparities, how telehealth remains unreliable for a disconnected rural public and how Granges in rural communities are stepping up.
