More home & garden
In a proclamation from Governor Gary Locke, this is Grange Week, recognizing the efforts of granges in supporting education for children. The Grange is a grassroots organization created after the Civil War when the condition of the farmers and agriculture was in a devastated state. Nationally, granges have been instrumental in the passage of the Sherman Anti-Trust Act, giving farmers fair shipping and fair prices for crops, and the creation of free rural mail delivery.
The Sammamish Valley Grange is community oriented, allowing free usage of their hall for meetings by local organizations. They also were instrumental in the organization of the Round Table and Woodinville Family Month. New members are always welcome, and a youth program is available.
