The Oregon State Grange Bulletin is the newsletter of the Oregon State Grange. It is published every other month, beginning in February. There is a special election issue in March every even numbered year.

Every member receives a subscription when joining. If you have not been receiving your copy, please complete the change of address for listed below. There are also forms for submitting a story as well as an In Memoriam notification of a member passing.

Submit a Story

The Bulletin’s content consists of articles submitted by our standing committee Directors, state officers, and Subordinate/Community Grange members.

Send the Bulletin Editor the who, what, when, where, why, and goal of your event or the outcome for an event that has already occurred. Quotes from individuals are always welcomed. Please include your contact information so that the Editor can follow-up to get answers to questions.

If you are not a writer, fill out this form so that the Editor can write an article for you.

Consider whether your event will be appropriate for the publication date. For example, if you are planning a February 10th event, the February issue may not reach readers in time. Your article needs to be in the December/January issue, which means it needs to be submitted by November 10th. If that’s not possible, or in addition, send your info to the Webmaster to include on our Event Calendar.

Please send pictures with captions, listing names of those in the photo from left to right. Use the maximum resolution settings that your camera supports. Attach your photos to your email. If you have a film camera, ask to have your photos placed on a CD when you have them printed and mail the CD with your form or article. You can also send the prints to the editor for scanning but the results may not be as good as an original digital image.

But if you really are not receiving the Bulletin, it may be that we do not have your correct or full address. Send it to the State Grange office by email office@orgrange.org or call 503-316-0106 between 8 am and 4:30 pm on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday.
