Grange gathers, donates toys

donated toys

   When Sammamish Valley Grange member Evelyn Kammerer (far left) read that stuffed toys were needed by fire departments to give to children involved in traumatic situations, she brought the matter up to the Grange. Soon, not only Grange members, but also square dancers who meet at the Grange, began bringing in all manner of stuffed creatures. The amount grew so large that fire fighters (left to right) Doug Bahr, Bryce Riddell, and Chris Hughes from Station #36 at Kingsgate had to come to pick them all up.
