A wreath is one of the most recognizable holiday symbols. During the winter, ancient Germanic peoples placed evergreen boughs in a circle to indicate life through the winter. Today the word “wreath” most often invokes thoughts of the holiday season and round boughs of evergreens and symbolizes life and hope for the winter and the holiday season.

Central Pomona Grange No. 1 was organized November 30, 1886.  The Pomona Grange is the equivalent of the county-wide/regional Grange. Central Pomona includes the following Granges in its jurisdiction - Southington Grange No. 25, Meriden Grange No. 29, Westfield Grange No. 50 (Middletown), Higganum Grange No. 124, and Hemlock Grange No. 182 (Portland).
