Supporting Marshall Grange
Marshall Grange itself is 100% operated by local volunteers. We’re completely funded by hall rentals, event income, and donations. This income stays with the hall and allows us to pay for everything from the Marshall Grange Scholarship and performers at our events, to the utilities and the roofer!
Everyone in the Georgetown Divide and beyond support the building each time you attend an event (and buy a slice of pie!) or rent the hall for your own events – THANKS!
Some volunteers from the community help at events and work parties. They show up early to setup and stay late to put it all away again. Whether they help a bit once or help a lot often these are the folks making it happen – THANKS!
Other community volunteers who are Grange Affiliate or Family members meet monthly to discuss Marshall Grange business, vote on officers, direct funds, and organize events – THANKS!
For generations that’s how it’s been. Everyone doing what they can to keep this wonderful resource, Marshall Grange, available for use.
Interested in being a Granger?
You can show your support for the Grange by becoming a Grange member. There are levels of Grange membership ranging from Junior to Affiliate and if you’d like know more just come to any of our regular business meetings and ask!
Though Affiliate or Family membership is required to hold office or vote on Marshall Grange matters, we do not add any local membership fee to the cost of the annual membership dues. While proceeds from events, rentals, and donations are retained by Marshall Grange, 100% of membership dues are forwarded to the California State Grange and National Grange. These dues support the advancement of agriculture and improvement of rural life through education programs.
