What is the Grange?
Order of Patrons of Husbandry
The Grange, officially known as the Order of Patrons of Husbandry, is a fraternal organization with a rich history and a highly visible community presence in the United States.
The Grange is a perfect example of a grassroots. The backbone of the Grange is the local “subordinate” or community Granges located across the country. These Granges offer a wide range of locally-oriented programs and activities for children, youth and adults. Each holds regular meetings where issues of community concern are discussed. They sponsor social events and community service projects.
Barlow Gate Grange #157
The Grange, located in Wamic, has two community events planned for 2015:
Our annual Pancake Breakfast will be held on July 4th and July 5th. This event raises the funds required to operate The Grange Hall.
The Lenore Walters Scholarship Dinner and Auction will be held Saturday Sept. 12th. This event raises money to support qualifying graduates from South Wasco County High School – not just seniors but ANYONE who has graduated from SWCHS. Any member of the Barlow Gate Grange and their families may also participate. Money awarded for this scholarship may be used for continuing education at ANY university, community college or trade school.
Applications for the Lenore Walters Scholarship are due by May 1st of the year and can be found on the So Wasco High School website or on our website.
