Around The Grange
National President to be in Kansas June 10

By Roger Bostwick , President, Kansas State Grange (6/1/10)

  JUNE 9, 2010 --

Ed Luttrell, President of The National Grange will be in Kansas on Thursday, June 10. He is travelling to all Grange states this year to discuss some important national and local issues. The goals of his visit are to host a press conference to increase public awareness about the Grange and also to host a membership meeting to share information and goals with members about our wonderful organization.

You might be asking yourself, "Why is this tour so important?" Ed believes that by increasing public awareness of our mission and goals, we will increase membership in our Granges. He is positive that when your community reads that the goal of the Grange is to provide opportunities for individuals and families to reach their highest potential and build stronger communities, they will no doubt jump at the chance to join. Your increased membership will, in turn, further our mission and strengthen this great nation of ours.

Pleasant View Grange has offered to host this event. The press conference will begin at 5:00 p.m. at the Way of the Cross United Methodist Church in Ozawkie with the membership meeting to follow at 6:00. This would be a wonderful time for ALL members and potential members to meet the National Master and share in his enthusiasm for this great organization of ours. Some topics of this meeting will include discussion of the duties of the officers, the condition and goals of the National Grange, update everyone on the name protection issue, and answer questions. The goal of this is to keep our current members abreast of national and state issues but also to recruit new members to the Grange. In true Grange tradition Pleasant View has also planned a potluck dinner following the meeting. Everyone is welcome to stay for the meal and are welcome to bring something if they would like.

Just a reminder, the Kansas State Grange Session is coming up before you know it. Now is the time to be thinking about any resolutions that you might have to submit. With all that is going on in the state and nation I'm sure there are many concerns for the Grange, both State and National, to consider. State Grange will be held in Emporia at the Best Western. Mark your calendars for September 24-26.
