In essentials unity, in non-essentials liberty, in all things charity.

In the news...
The Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture wanted to share a daily update of information related to coronavirus (COVID 19), and the Wolf Administration’s efforts to mitigate its effects in the commonwealth.
Earlier this week, the Governor issued an order for all non-life sustaining businesses in Pennsylvania to close their physical locations as of 8 p.m., March 19, to slow the spread of COVID-19. Enforcement actions against businesses that do not close physical locations will begin at 12:01 a.m. Saturday, March 21.

I thought I would remind everyone that the Pennsylvania State Grange does have a ZOOM conferencing agreement. If any Grange, group, committee or otherwise needs to meet and does not want to risk meeting in person, I can set up a ZOOM meeting for you.
I will need member names and email addresses to set up a meeting. I can usually due this within 24 hours of being notified. If you do send a request, please call me at 717.275.5045 and tell me to check for your email. Many times I may not be in the office every day so it could get missed if you don’t call me.
