Around The Grange
Massachusetts family honored
  JANUARY 2009 -- The National Grange honored The Jordan Family of Massachusetts as the recipient of the 2008 “Family of the Year” award at the 142nd annual National Grange convention’s “Evening of Excellence,” held this past November in Cromwell, Connecticut. This award is designed to annually recognize one outstanding Grange family acknowledging their achievements in their local community and Grange.
   
The Grange has been a way of life for the Jordan Family of Massachusetts for well over 100 years. They belong to Holden Grange #78, Uxbridge Grange #200 and Apple Valley Junior Grange #138. The family has served in numerous leadership positions in their Local, County, and State Grange. Exemplifying their commitment to the Grange, one member of the Jordan family organized a peach shortcake sale at two local summer community events, Holden Days and the Rutland Chowder Challenge. Working together, the rest of the family participated in this event from start to finish, raising much needed funds.
   
More recently, the Jordan family initiated a new community service project for Holden Grange. Recognizing the importance of supporting the Wachusett Food Pantry in their local area, four members of the Jordan family helped secure funding for a “Pantry Partners” program through an Opportunity Grant from the Massachusetts State Grange. The grant funds Holden Grange’s monthly purchases of food and/or paper goods to support the Pantry.
