Ken Donnell Special to Feather Publishing Members of the Feather River Grange announced they are holding a huge membership drive this April, and encourage anyone interested in the Quincy community to consider becoming a member of the Feather River Grange, located on Main Street. The Feather River Grange has fallen on some hard times recently. Past president Pete Witham moved away from Quincy, and the active membership has fallen to a handful. The remaining members of the Feather River Grange are committed to attracting a new group of members and ... moving forward to keep the being an inclusive and accepting Organization in which anyone is welcome to join and participate. Membership is open to anyone over the age of 14, and annual dues are $40 per person. The Grange operates on a democratic basis, with all members being equal, and each member having an equal voice and vote whenever decisions are made, The Feather River Grange was founded in 1929; it is affiliated with the California State Grange, which was founded in 1871. The California Grange was originally founded to help farmers fight the railroad monopolies that were essential for moving crops to market. At one time, the Grange California Water Project, agricultural cooperatives and many other institutions we now take for granted. The Grange is unique in its political work in that it always remains nonpartisan. The Grange will never support any political party or any specific candidate (although individual members are free to support whatever political candidates and parties they wish). The Grange always focuses on issues, and works through local, state and national legislative bodies to have laws passed supporting the positions decided by the members of the Grange. While much of America is awash in vicious partisan bickering over political issues, the Grange seeks to In these modern times: members of the Grange see a new threat in the form of corporate agribusinesses, which threaten the livelihoods of many small family farmers, and threaten the overall safety of our national foo l supply. The Grange believe that the most safe, secure and healthy food comes from local farmers providing their goods to local consumers, which is embodied in the ideal of the Grange -- "Helping Farmers, Protecting Consumers." While the Grange recognizes the marvel of modern American farming, members are also concerned that scale of some agribusinesses is reaching a point where the quality, labeling of food products for genetically modified organisms. The Grange is now hard at work to bring a new initiative requiring labeling of foods with GMOs to California voters in 2016. The work of the Grange is not limited to political action. Granges were once the social hub of many rural communities, and many local Granges continue to remain active in their communities. Besides making Grange hails available for rent, many Granges offer important activities to serve their communities' social needs including dances, day care, breakfasts, dinners, bingo, talent shows and more.
