The process is simple and your Grange may already qualify with the things you're currently doing!
The Distinguished Grange Program
The Distinguished Grange is a recognition program for Community Granges who fulfill their service and advocacy missions and provide support for members and their community was launched in 2009. The first Distinguished Granges were honored at the 144th Annual National Grange Convention, with a record number of 51 Community Granges and 9 State Granges honored at the 150th Convention in 2016.
We encourage every Grange to complete as many requirements or optional components of the program as possible and improve upon their tally each year. Doing so not only allows Granges to be recognized but solidifies their presence in their communities and meaning for their members.
