In the midst of all of the craziness in the world today... with the support of folks like you and the support of the California State Grange we paved the driveway today!
We're not quite done though. The State Grange really came through with a grant/loan package, however the loan part does need to be repaid.
I'm going to keep this fundraising campaign going until we've repaid the loan portion of $1,750. Anything you can contribute will help us get that paid off quicker.
The state of the driveway was starting to impact attendance and rentals. We really depend on folks being able to get our events and rent the hall for their own events too. Its how we raise money to maintain the hall, fund scholarships and host events. Now that we're accessible again I hope to see you at one of our next open mics!
My name is Neil Phaby, Grange Master and President of Marshall Grange #451. Marshall Grange is our local community hall in rural Garden Valley, California in the Sierra Foothills. We're 100% volunteer and 100% funded by donations and member fundraising activities. We host community events and provide an annual scholarship for Garden Valley High school graduates pursuing agricultural studies.
Its a challenge for rural community halls like ours to serve ever increasing needs of our community with dwindling resources but we're up to the task! We just need to reach out for a little extra help every now and then.
We're working all our angles and pooling all of our resources. This year members have graciously rebuilt two primary building entrances and if we can improve street access we'll be able to turn to needs on the interior of the building.
Any amount you can give is truly appreciated. All funds (100% ... , every little bit ... , all of it ... , etc. ... ) received by this campaign will be forwarded to Marshall Grange and dedicated for our driveway improvements. Marshall Grange in Garden Valley was chartered in 1930. Generations of friends and families have kept the hall going and our spirit alive - thank you for being one of them!
A big huge thank you for your time
