JUNIOR GRANGE CAMP
There will be a combined Junior and Youth/Young Adult camp this year. Combining these camps has been very successful. Older Juniors are able to participate in Y & YA activities. The plans for camp will be announced in the Michigan Grange News when plans are finalized.

THE JUNIOR DEGREE
Officers should be encouraged to commit the lectures to memory. This is a beautiful ceremony when done properly. A short form obligation has been written by the National Grange for use when necessary. The full form Junior Degree should be exemplified as often as possible.
