Since it was founded in 1909, the Sammamish Valley Grange has worked to improve and enrich rural conditions. Starting to help out farmers, the organization evolved to devote itself to retaining a rural character to the remaining non-developed areas of the valley, encouraging the development of rural skills. Engaging with the community, in addition to political activities, your local Grange has a broad interest and reach in charitable, social and fraternal endeavors that go beyond rural priorities.
The strength of a Grange is its fraternal ties. Because of these fraternal ties, Granges have been much more effective in getting legislation passed than other organizations of similar size. Click here for more information about the fraternal aspect of the Grange.
Regardless of all and any activities that the Grange is involved, the main purpose it to promote rural lifestyles and agricultural endeavors. If you are interested in either of these aspects the Sammamish Valley Grange is an organization that will aid your cause. Without a local Grange many resources that are available to retain our rural heritage will disappear, weakening a support system to support rural lifestyles. Joining our organization ensures a strong rural voice!
