PENNIES FROM HEAVEN COLLECTION
We have obtained a new container to collect pennies (or other forms of money) to help with the expenses that the Michigan State Grange will have when we again help to host the National Grange Convention in 2019.

Please save your coins, bills or even checks and either send them to the Michigan State Grange office at 404 S. Oak Street, Durand, MI 48429.

Expenses that we have vary from convention to convention but normally amount to a large sum. This is just one way we can help “in a small way” to come up with the amount needed. I’ve got the bottom covered!

SAVE!               SAVE!                  SAVE!                 SAVE!                  SAVE!
CAN YOU HELP??

STUDLEY GRANGE DELIVERS DICTIONARIES

Studley Grange #1174 of Midland presented 126 dictionaries to the third graders at Pine River and Floyd Elementary Schools in October. Pictured are the students from both schools receiving their dictionaries.

The grange members feel that this is a very worthwhile project. The teachers are very appreciative of receiving these dictionaries and the students are excited about them and read them as books.

This is the 13th year Studley Grange has donated dictionaries to third graders in the Bullock Creek School District. We have given away over 1,800 dictionaries during this time.
Happy New Year!!
​Here is to a
​great Grange year!!
