Anyone 14 years or older who wants to network within the local
community, participate in service projects, vote at Grange meetings to influence Grange policy, and develop personal leadership skills is welcome to join the Grange. Grange Insurance has not been a membership benefit for many years, but the National Grange offers a long list of membership benefits and some Community Granges provide additional member benefits. But most who join the Grange do so because of a desire to improve their community, build stronger bonds with community members and to have fun.
