“We were surprised and thrilled to have received this recognition from the National Grange,” said SVG Communication Manager Brenda Vanderloop. “The Sammamish Valley Grange is a small yet mighty membership organization and we’re proud to provide programming that our local community has supported.”

The Grange in Action program encourages all granges to be active in their communities and exclusive events or projects, no matter how small.

“The Sammamish Valley Grange has been working and will continue to work for the benefit of its local grange members, families, friends and neighbors through their educational opportunities,” Vanderloop said. “These efforts are attracting a broader membership as the Grange continues to make a difference through varying youth, junior, and adult programming, and activities that assist in enhancing the quality of life in our communities, state and nation.”

Vanderloop said local grange members and the Washington State Grange work to enrich lives and strengthen families across the State.
