Sadie Devoid makes good use of the dictionary she received this spring through the Grange’s program called Words for Thirds.
Towards the end of last year, I spent a couple of evenings sifting through records of the Charlotte Grange, pulling together photographs to map out how the Grange Hall has changed over the years and adapted to new uses.
For years the Charlotte Grange Hall has sat rather stately, but pretty dormant, at 2858 Spear Street in the East Charlotte Village. Last fall the membership voted to keep the Hall open over the winter and to host at least one event a month throughout the fall and winter.
Charlotte Grange #398 is holding their annual Fall Rummage Sale to raise funds needed to cover the replacement cost of an oil tank for their furnace. The ultimate goal is to renovate and refurbish the Grange Hall so that it can become a community resource for the Charlotte Community.
