The Kansas Granges.

Being born and raised in Kansas I have a particular interest in seeing how the Grange Halls are fairing there. I started doing a web search and found this sad site.

This is the Banner Grange Hall. The Grange was recently disbanded and the property sold.

The web site: which I don't know how long will be up is: http://www.pagelrealtyauction.com/auction-090617-banner.html

It is my hope that by networking with each other we can begin preventing such events, and even perhaps be reclaiming some of these old historic community centers.

The Kansas State Grange web site is: http://www.kansasgrange.org/
-------------------------------

Next up my search for Bayneville #1810 in Clearwater, KS 67026  I found this note:

This organization's exempt status was automatically revoked by the IRS for failure to file a Form 990, 990-EZ, 990-N, or 990-PF for 3 consecutive years. Further investigation and due diligence are warranted.

It was founded in 1975. 

Monthly on the fourth Sunday
Where
Augusta Senior Citizens & Friendship Center

By following the link on the map, the building looks like it could be a grange hall. It is located at the fair grounds.

----------------------------------------

Blue Mound Grange #2230 - is actually a Grange in Missouri - so in this instance does not count. I don't know why I am happy it is not in Kansas.

Dinner at 6:30, meeting at 7:30 Monthly on the first Saturday
