ARE YOU A DO er BETSY HUBER National Master Last summer as I was visiting the great Centre County PA Grange Fair I was struck by the size of the operation and the number of volunteers it takes to put on this fair totally owned and operated by the Pomona Grange with 1 000 individual tents and 1 500 RVs living on the more than 250 acres for 10 days each summer It suddenly occurred to me that all these volunteers are getting older like me and will someday reach a point where they are unable to do all the work required to keep the fair going Those members are part of a generation that joined and contributed and continues still to DO for their communities Without them the entire face of our nation could change The local community identity certainly will change Most Gen X ers and Millennials have yet to really step in the roles of these DO ers they mostly don t join but do enjoy the benefits of what has been built by the DO ers What will we do when the DO ers are gone Continued on page 4 2017 NATIONAL GRANGE Christopher Johnston O F F I C E R S Christine Hamp BETSY HUBER Judy Sherrod Claire Logan Barbara Borderieux JIMMY GENTRY National Chaplain National Overseer William Chip Narvel phil prelli Exec Committee Chair Duane Scott Exec Committee Secretar y Leroy Watson Exec Committee Member Joe Fryman Exec Committee Member NATIONAL GRANGE National Gatekeeper National Secretar y National Master 2 National Lecturer DECEMBER 2016 National Steward National Ceres Susan Noah National Pomona Marie Nicholson National Flora John Plank bruce croucher National Asst Steward Hig Priest of Demeter Brenda Rousselle James A owens Dwight Baldwin Roger Bostwick National Lady Asst Steward Priest Annalist National Treasurer Priest Archon

GRANGE LEGISLATIVE ROUND UP The National Grange filed an amicus brief with the Supreme Court of the United States in the case of Apple Inc v Samsung Electronics Co Ltd et al which involved a patent infringement case against Samsung The lower court awarded Apple damages for the infringement equal to Samsung s total profits The issue here was a design patent how it looked not functionality patent how it worked The Grange argued that the awarded damages of total profits on the device were excessive and the lower court ruling elevates designs of objects over their functionality This could have unintended consequences for agriculture and rural America An alleged infringer for example of a design patent for a part on a tractor could be forced to pay full profits of the entire tractor regardless of the role the design patent played in the tractor s sales Further the Grange was concerned about the chilling effect on manufacturers and technological development The high court agreed with the Grange and remanded the case back to the lower court for a more reasonable resolution National Grange executive committee member Leroy Watson authored several local regional and national op eds and blogs advocating such action by the Supreme Court PROMOTION KIT and rip cards are all part of this affordably priced kit Ask your community what the Grange means to them invite them to be DO ers with you and the other Grange members across the nation and provide them the printed material to apply for membership BURTON ELLER Legislative Director LORETTA WASHINGTON Sales Benefits Programs Director In our 150th Anniversary celebration year it is so important to promote the Grange and be part of our next member gain For only 12 plus shipping you can receive the new Grange Promotion kit COM 117 with everything you need to grow your Grange Brochures comic books 6 NATIONAL GRANGE DECEMBER 2016 Kit comes with 25 Declaration of Purpose brochures 15 Junior brochures 10 Youth brochures 25 Adult Members brochures 10 E member brochures 25 Recruiting brochures 25 Rip Card 25 A Grange Story Comic book All for the price of 12 00 plus shipping

JOIN THE DO ers A NEW CAMPAIGN By Kim Stefanick Intern During her annual address at the National Grange Convention on Tuesday Nov 15 2016 National President Betsy Huber introduced the concept that will be a great part of the sesquicentennial celebration and the theme of the April 2017 Grange Month A DO er Huber defined is a person who does not just enjoy the service of others but provides service themselves as part of a larger organized body of outreach Many DO ers though joined civic organizations before the 1960s but for each organization these members she said are aging and often cannot be as effective as they once were Because those members are part of a generation that joined and contributed and even today continues to do for their country Huber said They are DO ers And without them the entire face of our nation could change The factors that contribute to a community s identity certainly will Because most Generation Xers or Millennials have yet to really step into the roles of the DO ers She described how successive generations have failed to join but instead enjoy the benefits of what s been built by the DO ers This was especially apparent during convention as Huber took part in and several members of the delegate body were audience to a roundtable discussion with Danny Wood immediate past Sovereign Grand Master of the Independent Order of the Odd Fellows logo for new Join The DO ers movement Simon LaPlace Executive Director of the Masonic Service Association of North America and Roger Johnson President of the National Farmers Union Each of the organizational leaders acknowledged similar challenges with younger generations who aren t joiners LaPlace brought with him to the discussion a book Huber had heavily referenced in her annual address Bowling Alone by Robert Putnam He saw what we have seen a membership that on average gets older and fewer every year and said that within two decades many civic organizations just like us would cease to exist Huber told delegates and members during her speech However Grangers have toughed it out with great part because of the generation of DO ers We are still filled with amazing members who are the backbone of our Granges and their associated projects Hubert said Members who are there every time the Grange Hall is open Members who plan and strategize and provide for others even when they are by most standards old enough to be provided for themselves Members who will not be here to celebrate A DO ER IS A PERSON WHO DOES NOT JUST ENJOY THE SERVICE OF OTHERS BUT PROVIDES SERVICE THEMSELVES AS PART OF A LARGER ORGANIZED BODY OF OUTREACH Continued on page 10 DECEMBER 2016 NATIONAL GRANGE 10

JOIN THE DO ers From page 9 our 200th year What a significant loss A loss that is so much bigger than the impact it will have in the Grange No matter the reason the generation of DO ers our communities have relied on consistently for decades is rapidly disappearing Huber said And maybe more than any other generation after them they deserve the welcome plaudit Well done good and faithful servant Huber said these members who have served their communities and nation for decades embody the definition of a DO er something she was contemplating as she drove to attended a Grange Fair over the summer It was then that a nagging question arose and stuck with her What will remain when the DO ers are gone With this question the DO ers campaign was born Established to attract a younger audience to join civic organizations as an opportunity to become a part of a community and serve their areas and their country one of the strengths Huber said is that it acknowledges Grange and our breadth of service and interest but does not pretend that only the Grange can provide answers to social needs It encourages people to identify as DO ers and to ask others to become DO ers by joining an organization that fits their interests and needs Because once someone joins one organization the barrier is broken and they are more likely to join another Huber said It s the ask a busy person and it will get done philosophy The broad focus will offer greater appeal Huber said and allow her and other members of the National Grange leadership to take the message out of our Halls and directly to the people as part of the DO er campaign and Huber s associated national tour in 2017 I will be touring the nation making stops in communities at festivals and fairs at graduations and banquets to challenge people to join us the DO ers Huber said Huber said she wants to attend public events where she can speak to those who we wish to step into the roles of DO ers not just Grange events or meetings where she would be preaching to the choir In April Huber said Grange Month will allow local Granges to have some of the greatest impact in spreading the DO er message Every Grange should hold the conversation of what they provide to the community what they do then invite the public into their Halls or meetings in April and show them all the Grange does and has done Huber said Ask them what they think the community would be like without those things what would change about the way they interact with one another get to know their neighbors and what would have changed about their lives if these services and events did not exist We need to give them solid examples Huber said Without DO ers the annual event that was the place for their first date or the pies they love at Thanksgiving because not only are the delicious but they benefit the local library may not be there for their children and grandchildren to enjoy Let that sink in then ask is it important enough to them that they will step up join and do Huber said if Granges hold this conversation and truly help the community to understand their impact and the impact of other civic organizations it must motivate you or your community or nothing will Your community can t wait Your nation can t wait The world can t wait We need you all of you to join with us in the civic revolution and say I m a DO er TO READ BETSY S ENTIRE ADDRESS GO TO WWW NATIONALGRANGE ORG WP CONTENT UPLOADS 2016 12 EXTERNALADDRESS2016 PDF TO LEARN MORE OR TO REQUEST A TOUR STOP BY NATIONAL PRESIDENT HUBER GO TO WWW JOINTHEDOERS ORG 11 NATIONAL GRANGE DECEMBER 2016

GRANGE MEMBERSHIP ON THE RISE UPTICK IN GROWTH FOR 2016 YEAR GIVES HOPE By Kim Stefanick Intern In one of the biggest announcements of the 150th Annual National Grange Convention National President Betsy Huber told the audience for her annual address that the Grange is growing and in the 2015 16 membership year there was a net increase for the organization Today at the beginning of our sesquicentennial celebration I am proud to tell you that we have not only continued to thrive in our communities and as a national organization but in our 2015 16 membership year we can report a slow rising tide of interest that resulted in a net gain in members Huber said We have grown our membership not by much but enough to make up for the members that were called away Acknowledging that the Grange must still take membership recruitment seriously Huber said the Grange membership is a membership that on average gets older and fewer every year While the growth was small Huber said that this growth symbolizes to the Grange community our relevance in today s society Granges and Grange members are a vital part of the local community Huber said Today we may have fewer members and we may have fewer pieces of legislation we single handedly shepherd to their final destination but we are still very much a central force in lives of individuals where our community Granges exist and in the public sphere We are still filled with amazing members who are the backbone of our Granges and their associated projects Huber said Members who are there every time the Grange hall is open WE HAVE NOT ONLY CONTINUED TO THRIVE IN OUR COMMUNITIES AND AS A NATIONAL ORGANIZATION BUT IN OUR 2015 16 MEMBERSHIP YEAR WE CAN REPORT A NET GAIN IN MEMBERS In 2017 the National Grange will try a new approach to membership at the director level creating several regional level directors with one lead who will help coordinate messaging approaches and training While there is hope that some would volunteer to serve in the position Huber said these could potentially be positions with small stipends like that of the Youth and Junior directors in the future National Grange can help you with the training and tools but we cannot go out into the community and get members for you Huber said Our new membership staff will work in close cooperation with the states to ensure you can be successful We hope the 2016 17 membership year will continue to show growth across the Grange family and engage new DO ers with our storied organization 13 NATIONAL GRANGE DECEMBER 2016
