MICHIGAN STATE SESSION CHANGES for 2021
The 2021 Michigan State Grange Convention will be ​back to orginially planned session, starting ​Thursday evening thru Saturday night. 
All activities will return to normal.

As posted in the Master's MGN Article
​In a repeat of last year, the seating in session will be placed with social distancing in mind. As for masks, we will be continuing to monitor the CDC and MDHHS guidelines. At this time it is recommended to wear a mask regardless of vaccination status, so masks will not be required. Should they make it a requirement, we will follow suit. The meals will be plated to eliminate the need to stand in a line. And finally, hand sanitizer will be available at several officers stations.

A message from the 150th Celebration Committee:

The members of the 150th Celebration Committee are planning a grand celebration, but with that comes a grand cost. We would like to request each Grange to donate an item or two for a silent auction to be held at the Michigan State Grange Annual Session to help raise funds to cover the celebration expense. We will have a table at the session with all the items for members to bid on. We appreciate your assistance and stay tuned for more information about the celebration.
