|OCTOBER 4, 2011 --
Almost all of society is stretched to the limit today. We are off to work, off to take the kids to school, then its sports, shopping, the list goes on and on. Too often we forget about what is truly important, our giving back to our community. Your local Grange is a perfect place to participate in community service. One of the fundamental foundations of the Grange is service to the community. Last year Grange members in Connecticut gave almost 100,000 hours their time and talent to better the communities in which they serve.
Many Granges support their local school, food bank and youth sports teams. What a better way to give back to the community than helping those who are served by these services. How about just saying hi to your neighbor. Sometimes the smallest act of kindness goes a real long way. Not only will it put a smile on their face, it will on yours too.
So, try it giving back, it is never to late to be a good neighbor.
