The Goldendale Sentinel - Headlines & History since 1879

Granges celebrate


February 21, 2018

The public is invited to help celebrate the anniversaries of the local granges at the Goldendale Grange Hall on Sunday, March 4, beginning at 1 p.m. with a potluck.

The majority of the seven Klickitat County Granges: Goldendale, Centerville, Columbia, Mt View, Trout Lake, Glenwood and Bickleton have been in existence over 100 years and will be celebrating along with the National Grange 150th Anniversary together.

Each grange will be exhibiting their history with pictures, records, albums and memorabilia at the celebration for public viewing. At the height of the grange movement 34 local granges were organized in Klickitat County. As roads and transportation improved over the years these small remote local granges consolidated into the seven active granges we have today.

The Grange since foundation has been active in legislation and community service. Grange is open to all who seek a higher and better station in life through education, leadership and legislative participation.
