OCTOBER 2008 -- October 1st marks the start of a new Grange Year. We hope that you have all your plans for the coming year in place and you are preparing to lay-out your advertising campaign. It is important that newspaper articles or press releases be issued to all the local news media to inform the general public of your plans for the coming year.
As each activity approaches, you should again send out press releases or announcements telling the general public of the planned activity. By keeping this information before the eyes of the public, your Grange will be better recognized by your neighbors and friends.
Hopefully, this will result in an important goal of the State and National Granges of a net gain in membership.
