It’s the last day of Junior Grange Month! Today we want to thank all of our Junior Grangers for everything they do, and everyone who has helped them out along the way.

For our last Junior Grange Ambassador highlight, Alexandria "Jomni" Tarbell, from East Pembroke Grange in New York, said “Through the Junior Grange's unique experiences, I have grown in many long lasting ways. It has helped me discover and explore interests that continually shape my future. I learned the importance of improving issues in my community either by legislation or community service. My confidence has increased in many aspects, especially working with a diverse age group. I greatly value the sense of connection to Grangers from across the country given to me, and will still be given to me as I grow in the Grange. I deeply appreciate the doors Junior Grange has opened for me and look forward to the doors Grange will open for me in the future.”

We are coming down the home stretch of Junior Grange Month! For our first post this week, we are hearing from Alexis Kudsk from Custer, WA.

“Growing up in the Grange, the Junior Grange program has always had a close place in my heart. It has always meant the world to me to be involved in such an amazing organization for kids,” said Kudsk.

“Being involved in the Junior Grange program really helped me come out of my shell, because growing up I was incredibly shy and would not do any kind of public speaking, but I was encouraged to face my fears and try new things that were normally out of my comfort zone. The Junior Grange was a safe space where I got to make new friends, develop leadership skills that have followed me throughout the years, and compete in competitions that I never would have otherwise. I have changed from the shy, quiet, girl to a leader that is not afraid to stand up for my opinions and can speak with relative confidence in public.”

I can't find a copy of Junior By-laws. I know we need 7 members for a quorum, but how many to have a Junior Grange? We have a bunch aging out and with COVID restricting our chance to take in new members, I want to be sure we are OK. We have 2 all ready to join us, but if we need them, maybe we can do the obligation by Zoom and get them in and have a special Ceremony Day when we can meet as a group. Please and thank you!
Maine State Grange didn't plan very well. We decided to have a Pumpkin Growing Contest and Johnny's Selecterd Seeds donated lots and lots of pumpkin seeds for us to give to every Grange. They are 'Racer' Pumpkins which are the 12-18 pound size so that the kids can handle them easily, but not suitable for 'The Largest' pumpkin' so how do we set a criteria for judging? We didn't think about rules in advance. Judge them on shapre and color? Anything else? Any experience out there with this kind of contest? Please and thank you.
Almost afraid to share this picture. But it came to mind when I saw this post. I was Junior Princess and Henry Christenson was State Master, many many years ago.
Can you like Maine State Junior Grange so I can reply or post from them, not from myself? Please and thank you.
What do we do with the permission slips to allow children's pictures to be taken and shared? Keep them in our files or send a copy to someone at the National level?
How Fun! If you had state session this past weekend what did your Juniors do to make it extra special?
Please hold Lillian and the Sharpe family in your thoughts and prayers.

Are there any new merit badges coming out this month?
I was a Jr. Grange Matron in 1980's; my group won the ST Grange Jr. Grange Drill team award; and due to a very heavy schedule I turned down the late/PM Kenny Skinner request for me to be MA ST Grange Junior Grange Master. He reminded me every time he saw me until his death.
I can't find 2018 information. We have a couple of parents interested in info and all I can find is 2017. Or is that for 2 years? I have Maine's booklet, but our Jr. Director just got elected for a state office and the director position hasn't been filled yet. Please and thank you. I'm copying the National 33 page info with the assumption that the theme, state and awareness are about the only changes.
