OCTOBER 2007 --
The calendar says summer should be over but as I write this the temperature is rising through the 80’s. Hopefully by the time you read this, we will be experiencing autumn at its best. The cooler temperatures should encourage us all to get out and visit other Granges. We all have a lot of work to do to make our Granges a force in our communities and to keep them active. Good Luck!
My thanks to everyone who entered the photo contest this year. We had a lot of different Grangers entering and many of these people were among the winners. This years winners are as follows:
