THE NEW ROOF IN ON!!!  STOP BY AND SEE HOW GOOD IT LOOKS.

Please join us at all our events.Your donation at these events go toward “TheOLD SCHOOL HOUSE” renovation projects. Our new roof is on and looks amazing.  Thank you to all who donated specifically to the roof project and to those who join us at events that help us Raise the Roof.  Our next project has not been determined yet… but we need to rebuild the Front and Kitchen stairs, refinish the floors, re-carpet the stage and update the Kitchen.  So please keep those donations coming in.  You are what makes it possible for the Grange to stay open and provide events for our community to enjoy.  Please feel free to make a contribution. Your contributions can be tax deductible through the PICK Foundation (People Improving Communities and Kids), a State Grange 501c3 organization. Just ask any Grange member for the tax deduction form and we will be happy to get that to you for your generous donation. If you are writing a check, please make your check payable to PICK and write ‘Florissant Grange’ in the notes area. All donations made to the Florissant Grange through PICK go directly to your Florissant Grange. Thank you in advance for helping us while we raise the necessary funds for the ongoing renovation of the Old School House, Grange Hall.

We still need your participation in our events and your donations.  Our next project is to completely rebuild the steps at the front door and the kitchen door.  They are in GREAT need of repair.

Past News:

Thank you to all those who came to our Christmas Party.  We had at least 50 children and their parents who enjoyed Santa and Mrs. Claus, free pictures, crafts and cookies.  This year we had cocoa to go with the cookies and made cocoa cups that the kids could take home.  We had such a great time.

Thanks to all our Grangers for getting together and shopping and delivering 5 Christmas dinner and gift boxes for 5 families who were struggling with the Christmas Season this year.
