Senate of Pennsylvania
Session of 2023 - 2024 Regular Session


Posted: April 14, 2023 01:33 PM
From: Senator Elder A. Vogel, Jr. and Sen. Judith L. Schwank
To: All Senate members
Subject: Recognizing the 150th Anniversary of the Pennsylvania State Grange
I intend to introduce a Senate Resolution designating September 18, 2023 as “State Grange Day” recognizing the Pennsylvania State Grange on its 150 anniversary.

The Grange movement took root in Pennsylvania in 1871 with the organization of Eagle Grange #1 in Lycoming County, and on September 18th, 1873, in Reading PA, the Pennsylvania State Grange was born. A meeting was held to organize the Pennsylvania State Grange and at the time there were 25 local Granges in PA. As of 2022, there are approximately 170 local Granges with nearly, 5,700 members serving the communities of the Commonwealth.

The Grange (Patrons of Husbandry) is a fraternal family organization dedicated to the betterment of the American way of life through community service, education, advocacy, fellowship, and agricultural awareness. The Grange includes members of all ages and specifically has programs for Juniors (ages 5-14), Youth (ages 14-23) and Young Adults (ages 23-35). It is the oldest agricultural and rural advocacy organization of its kind in the United States.

Please join me in sponsoring this resolution celebrating the Pennsylvania State Grange and their 150 anniversary.
