Quilts on the Grange
I will have to admit that I didn't know what a Grange was until I was contacted by Barbara Gross.
I do know that six of them in Pennsylvania have quilt squares, and a dozen more are on the way. Barbara is helping to coordinate this statewide trail on Grange halls and other community buildings throughout Pennsylvania
From the Pennsylvania Grange site: "The Grange is a family fraternal organization dedicated to the betterment of rural America through community service, education, legislation, and fellowship."
A bit of research told me that Granges are common in many states--but not in Georgia or Florida, the only two in which this gal has resided.
The Fairdale Grange in Susquehanna County chose this Friendship Star, saying, "What better place than the grange to find new friends?
