Lecturer’s Programs in a Box

Starting in April 2016, the National Grange Lecturer began releasing one program each month to Lecturers for use for Grange meetings. These are created as “programs in a box” – with all kinds of resources, tips and tools for the Lecturer to use to provide a program that fits their Grange or stretches beyond their normal approach. On the Lecturer’s Programing page of the National Grange website, the left column lists currently available programs.

2017 State Contests

Entries for the Talent Contest must be sent to the State Lecturer postmarked no later than June 1. Entries for all other contests must be received in the Lecturer’s room at the Florence Events Center by noon on Sunday June 25. If no one from your Grange is attending the convention, you can mail your entries to the State Grange office (643 Union St. NE, Salem 97301) by June 1.

Each entry must include contest entered, category and division of that contest. No entry will be accepted without the entrant’s name, complete address, phone number, Grange name and number. For non-members, please list the sponsoring Grange member’s name and Grange. If you print and fill out contest entry labels before you arrive at the convention, your entries will be processed faster.

All entries need to be picked up at State Session by Noon on the last day of the session
