Honoring Carrie

We were sad, this winter, to say goodbye to our longtime member, Carrie Saunders.  She celebrated her 101st birthday last December 24th and we were so blessed to have had her as a dedicated Grange member for 75 years.  At The Grange Hall on April 9th, there was a gathering for our long-time Treasurer and her friends, family, and fellow Grangers all came out for a Celebration of her life.  Her life-long contribution to her community and her Grange family was inspirational to us all and she will be sincerely missed.
