National Grange spreads holiday cheer
Six Christmas trees that were decorated and will be donated to those in need were on display at the 145th annual National Grange Convention in early November.
“Each year, there are many of our older members who can no longer put up and decorate their own trees. There are also those families that have fallen on hard times and cannot afford a tree. We’re a community organization and we hope to bring the Christmas spirit to these people by donating a tree that was lovingly decorated,” National Grange President Ed Luttrell said in a Dec. 6 National Grange press release.
The trees represented each of the hosting states -- Colorado, Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma, and Texas -- as well as the National Grange.
The tree donated by Texas State Grange is going to an assisted living center. Flo Carter, a member of David Crockett Grange, lives in a center in San Antonio, Texas, and will be a recipient of the tree.
This annual effort has provided more than a hundred trees to those in need.
