Due to State COVID Mandates - CALL Before Attending Grange Events


From The Chaplain's Desk
December 2012 Chaplain's Corner

  DECEMBER 6, 2012 --

This Christmas message, I wish to share with you, is truly a part of everyone’s Grange journey.

Our Christmas Card List

We have a list of folks we know, all written in a book, and every year when Christmas comes, we go and take a look. That is when we realize these names are all a part, not of the book they’re written in, but of our very heart. For each name stands for someone who has crossed our path sometime, and in that meeting they’ve become the rhythm in each rhyme. While it may sound fantastic for us to make this claim, we really feel that we’re composed of each remembered name. And while you may not be aware of any special link, just meeting you has changed our life much more than you may think, For once we’ve met somebody, the years cannot erase the memory of a pleasant word or of a friendly face. So, never think our Christmas cards are just a mere routine of names upon a Christmas list, forgotten in between. For when we send a Christmas card that is addressed to you, it’s because you’re on the list of folks we’re endeared to. For we are but a total of the many folks we’ve met, and you happen to be one of those we prefer not to forget. Whether we have know you for many years or few, in some way you have had a part in shaping things we do. And every year when Christmas comes we realize anew, the best gift life can offier is meeting folks like you. So, may the spirit of Christmas that forevermore endures leave its richest blessings in the hearts of you and yours.

A Blessed Holiday Season to you all!
