We’ll serve a light supper of pizza (GF and V options) and salad, by donation. Please bring your plate and utensils. After the meal, our Musician and Assistant Steward Paul Schwebel will talk about civil discourse and the methods the organization Braver Angels is using to promote a return to civil discourse, even when the topics are difficult.

At our May Grange General Meeting,

we socialized in the shade of the Hall before we enjoyed Dot Janson’s delicious homemade chili (which disappeared too quickly to get photographed!), and we sang along with Laura and Paul’s rendition of “I’m an Old Cowhand”. Jannike Allen gave a presentation on Preparing for Wildfire, and President Laura swore in Linda Mollenhauer Meyskens and Tom Meyskens as new Grange members!

Beekeepers at the Grange

On Sunday, June 12th, members of The Sonoma County Beekeepers Association who came to tour the Hedgerow project were met by President Laura. They brought and planted new additions of hearty natives to our Hedgerow near the pump house.
Connie and Ellen were part of the group who helped with the initial planting, and they were thrilled to see the progress of the habitat. The group is in support of joining us and writing to the Santa Rosa Water Department regarding the Kelly Farm evolving into no-till methods. Pictured: Ellen, Connie, Ellen, Franny and Gulten.
