Important News and Upcoming Events

  • After many months and much appreciated information from families of original Grange members, the Historic Building designation was bestowed upon Schley Grange Hall in early 2020. The ceremony was held September 12 between 2 and 4 PM. A video presentation was prepared and shown by Peter Sandbeck, Orange County's Cultural Resources Coordinator, depicting many farm families from the Schley community during the 1940's and 1950's. A display of assorted memorabilia was displayed! (You might have seen your parents or grandparents in photos!) At 2:15 p.m. brief remarks were presented by Grange officers, and other special guests recognizing the efforts of the members, families, and others integral to Schley Grange and its successful years. A special unveiling was also presented!
