Welcome, New Members!

Becky and Dennis Patterson

Valley Grange is pleased and excited to welcome our newest members, Dennis and Becky Patterson from Abbot. Both decided to join after recently attending the Italian Buffet to benefit Smart Starts. They enjoyed the atmosphere and appreciated the work of the Grange.

Becky works with Charlotte White and Dennis is recently retired from True Textiles where he was a high pressure boiler operator. After hearing just some of the activities we have Becky joked, “What have I got myself into?!!” Both are enjoying meeting new people and making friends and Dennis is considering becoming a bookworm! Look for them at Valley Grange events and say a word of congratulations and welcome!

Grange membership has become a lot “easier” than it was years ago and it’s affordable–dues are currently only $25 per year. The rewards are many including an opportunity to have fun helping your community and neighbors. Our next meeting is September 21 when we have a planning roundtable to outline our projects and programs for 2012-2013. Come join us and see what we mean by American Values–Hometown Roots.
