NSD School Board Candidate Forum
This candidate forum was held in mid-July, 2021 at the Grange Hall in Woodinville. Co-sponsors were Sammamish Valley Grange and The Woodinville Weekly with Moderator, Laura Guido, Editor, The Woodinville Weekly. There are three open positions on the Northshore School Board, with the primary scheduled in August, 2021 and the election in November. All candidates were invited with the Forum open to the public and all ages invited to attend. Each candidate was asked the same questions and had the same time to answer the questions. The community was very supportive and interested in the event.
Annual Farmers Roundtables
The Farmers Roundtables, held each year are a resounding success. Thank you to all the participants, Grange members and community residents for your support of our local farmers. Stay tuned for the next Roundtable in fall, 2023. Photo Margaret Felts, Gaining Ground.
Wreath Making with Rotaract & Interact
We were thrilled to partner with our Interact and Rotaract students for the annual Sammamish Valley Grange wreath making event at Celebrate Woodinville Winterfest. Volunteer work teams were organized to construct wreaths and local residents enjoyed making their personal wreaths at DeYoung Park. Local greens, sprigs and branches were harvested in advance and completed wreaths were made available to the public through advance on-line orders. Partial proceeds of wreath sales benefited Sammamish Valley Alliance. All wreaths were sold to our supportive community members. Thank you for sharing the spirit of the season and for supporting our local organizations.
