15 members rise to the 4th degree

Sorry for the lateness of this post but I needed to consult with a number of people to get the correct information on some facts.

On Oct 6 the Dirigo Grange in Freedom hosted a degree ceremony and potluck afterward. Maine State Grange’s Chief Deputy Vernon Dunn presided over a team assembled from 6 local granges that took new Grangers to the 4th degree. At the point in the proceedings when Vernon took a count of how many had come from each Grange our Master Greg Hills stood up and responded  FIFTEEN. The look on Vernons face is one I will treasure forever. He told us he has never had so many at one time for degree work. Many thanks go to all those who made this happen, our friends and neighbors in the Dirigo Grange. Knox Station Grange, Branch Mills Grange, Harvest Home Grange,  We couldn’t have made it this far without all your help.
