Ravena Grange #1457
Growing in the Community

90th Anniversary




On October 19, 2009 Ravena Grange celebrated 90 years of service to this community. A good group of Grangers and friends attended the festivities. Town of Coeymans Board Members were on hand, and presented a congratulatory citation. Historical highlights were remembered, some of which are presented here. The evenings guest speaker was NYS Grange President Oliver J. Orton, from Dutchess County. He spoke on the need for the grange in today’s society, and that maintaining a positive attitude is absolutely necessary if success is to be gained. Program Director Vinni Kirmss presented a humorous skit, which was enjoyed by all. A fellowship time followed the meeting at which time the anniversary cake was cut and enjoyed.

We would like to give a special thank you to Laurie Lynn for the very nice article about our Anniversary in the October 22 edition of The Ravena News-Herald.
