Who Can Attend

Membership has benefits, and one benefit is that only members in Good Standing can attend the Annual Session. How do you determine if you are a member in Good Standing? If your Subordinate Grange has been paying quarterly dues to the California State Grange (NOT THE McFARLAND Group/Guild), then you are a member in Good Standing. Names will be verified using membership lists from Granges in Good Standing and photo ID will be required!
