In November, just prior to the start of the National Grange Session, the Grange Radio returned with new voices and music. A greater diversity of music and programming is expected after the new year

It can be found online at www.grangeradio.org, where Grangers have a place they can go to listen to family and farmer friendly music while staying up to date on the latest Grange news and events. The station also has an active Facebook page at www.facebook.com/GrangeRadio. You can add your voice to Grange Radio by recording a short “bumper” or becoming a contributor. To learn more, go to the website.

​​It is Michigan's turn to host the Midwest Regional Youth/Young Adult Conference June 15-17, 2018.  As we do not have a Youth/Young Adult Director, we need your help in making this conference a success.

Ideas are needed for location (preferably close to the Indiana border) and activities for the Youth to do.​​

If you have a place in mind or have a Grange Hall that you would open to host, please let Connie Johnston know.​​​  We try to keep the event cost efficient since many attendees have a ways to travel.
