Around The Grange
Youth Needed For National Grange Building Tours

By Charlene Espenshade, National Grange Youth Director

  MAY 6, 2010 --

Have you ever wanted to be part of an historic event where you will have the opportunity to help Grange members from throughout this Country?

Don't you want to be one of the select few to wear and own a Building Ambassador shirt? Would you like the opportunity to work side by side with a National Grange Officer or member of the Assembly of Demeter?

Well - do we have a deal for you! On June 26th the National Grange will be rededicating your building at 1616 H St NW in Washington, DC. and we need your help as Building Ambassadors. When the building was first dedicated in June, 1960 the Youth from all around the country acted as Tour Guides. We want to now give you this chance because we believe you, the Youth Grangers of today, will do a great job.

It will give you not only the opportunity to interact with other Youth but also with Grange members from all across the country. You will be working alongside National Grange Officers and members of the Assembly of Demeter as we welcome our guests. You will be working with members of the National Grange Staff explaining the importance of the various rooms and offices within the building. As a Building Ambassador you will get a unique perspective of the National Grange building very few members will ever get.

This will be a very unique and once-in-a-lifetime chance to be part of the history of the Grange. All that you do will be recorded for future generations of Grangers to read about.

If you would like to be part of the Building Ambassador team please contact the National Grange Youth Director, Charlene Espenshade at Youth@nationalgrange.org for rooming/meal and tour package costs or National Grange Lecturer Pete Pompper at NJSGPrez@aol.com if you have any questions about the tours or rededication ceremony.
