Saving the Grange
Tuesday, September 7, 2010
Shannon Nickelsen has fond memories of visiting the local grange as a young child. Her grandmother, Orale Reude, was the junior grange leader in the Cape Horn area, just outside Washougal.
“It was a part of our life,” she said. “We used to put on flag ceremonies and candlelight ceremonies. On Sundays, we would have ham dinners at the grange. Grandma taught us how to set and wait tables, and we would get tips. It was so rewarding.”
