Enterprise Grange’s Message of the Month #48

by: Ann Page

SAVE THE RICHMOND GRANGE – Barns have always been a vital part of rural communities since their inception. This year marks the 156th Annual Convention of the National Grange. Each Grange is non-partisan and in which mutual accountability to each other, community, state and nation is recognized. The very atmosphere and purpose of the barn has a lively and dynamic influence.

ASSIGNMENT

The Grange empowers individuals, families, and communities through action, service, education, advocacy, and agricultural awareness.

Richmond Enterprise Grange #48 has a unique history tied to the town. The building, originally located on the Kennebec, served as ship fittings for industry. In the late 1800s the building was purchased and moved from the river to the village via logs placed under its foundation while teams of horses pulled it up Main Street to its new location.

Richmond intends to save their Barn. The second floor of the building houses a spectacular theatrical space that is in dire need of restoration. Recently a new roof and windows were installed. In a few months, structural repairs are needed and new electrical wiring is planned. The necessary funding remains for: a new kitchen, front and side entrance and exterior siding.

Donations for this ongoing project are appreciated at the Nonprofit Fundraiser: www.Donorbox.org under Enterprise Grange #48. The title is : save the barn
