Middle Branch Grange #463
Middle Branch Grange #463 is located at 78 Store Hill Road, East Bethel, VT. We meet the first and third Fridays of each month at 8:30 p.m.
Middle Branch Grange was organized in April, 1912. Our hall was built that year as a community hall. We have a dozen or more farms within our local grange membership. We have more than 120 members. We have an active Junior Grange. More than half of our officers are youth.
Some of our annual events are a grange picnic and a corn roast. We hold a dues paid supper the last Saturday of April. This is a ham & turkey supper open to the public with entertainment in the evening. We assist the local church with their strawberry supper the last Saturday of June at our hall. Our annual chicken pie supper is the second Saturday of October, again with entertainment in the evening.
The Grange was originally formed as an agricultural organization for the entire family. Today the Grange includes
non-farm families as well. Junior Grangers range from 5 to 14 years of age. Subordinate (local) Granges have members from 14 to 100+. All have equal rights as voting members.
