We really need to have someone step up to the plate and take the Directors position for the youth and juniors.
Since we do not have a director at this time, here is a reminder of some of the contests that we can still be working with our youth and juniors on for the upcoming convention in October.
Youth and Young Adults: Be sure to fill out the Achievement forms for your youth and return to the Michigan State Grange by Sept. 10th. Also the Special Recognition for Pomona and Subordinate Granges. There is also a Public Speaking contest for Michigan Granges also. Juniors: Coloring Contest, Crafts ( Wind Chime, Tie Dye Shirt, Noodle Art) and Junior Group Activity.
You can find the rules for each of these contests in the 2016-2017 Program book or on the michiganstategrange.org website under Junior/Youth/Young Adults.
**PLEASE NOTE: During the 2016 Michigan State Grange Annual Session, the Junior and Youth/Young Adult Departments were joined until participation increases to warrant two separate departments.
