New Grange Forms in Barnstead

NH Grange Master Christopher Heath awarding new charter to Scott Micheau, Master of the Barnstead Community Grange.

 

After months of planning, the Barnstead Community Grange is now official.  Last month they received their charter from the Master of the New Hampshire State Grange, Christopher Heath at a small ceremony at the Oscar Foss Memorial Library in Center Barnstead.

 

The Grange is a nonprofit fraternal organization that advocates for rural America and agriculture with a strong history in grassroots activism, family values and community service.  Historically, the Grange was the first national organization to give full voice and vote to women, helped organize the NH State Police, was instrumental in founding Public Libraries, Rural Free Delivery and Rural electrification.  Recently they have been involved with expanding rural internet service, Farm Bill formulation, and improving health care and Medicare access in rural areas.

 

There has recently been a resurgence of interest in the Grange. The importance of having an organization that advocates for small farms and the rural way of life has become re-appreciated.   The Grange is learning to adapt traditional values of the farm, family and community to the needs of an evolving modern society and created a social community service organization dedicated to a better quality of life. 

 

On Monday November 16th, there will be an informational meeting at the Oscar Foss Memorial Library in Center Barnstead at 7PM.  Anyone interested in getting more information upon the Grange or the Barnstead Community Grange in particular are invited to attend or contact: Genevieve Michaud 603-867-7482 or [email protected]. Refreshments will be served.
