Welcome to the online home of the New Jersey State Grange, a chapter of the National Grange, America’s foremost volunteer and grassroots organization. The Grange is a fraternal organization for all of America that welcomes men, women and young persons to its membership, regardless of nationality, race, age, profession or educational background, providing opportunities for all to share in equal membership and to come together to make a difference in their own lives and the lives of others. Today’s New Jersey State Grange has a variety of departments which share their respective goals and direction with Subordinate Granges from throughout the State.
Building the Grange for Tomorrow
The traditions of the last 150 plus have served us well but now is the time to look to the future. What do our meetings and activities look like in what is becoming our new normal? How can we stay relevant and be involved with our communities?
2023 - the 150th Anniversary of the New Jersey State Grange
150 years in the making, we are celebrating our sesquicentennial in 2023!
From our humble beginnings in Camden in November 1873, we have seen many changes in the world and the Grange over the last 150 years. And we are going to celebrate with regional celebrations throughout the state in 2023 as well as A Day of Learning in March, an exemplification of the first four degrees of the Order in September and other fun activities throughout the year.
The Grange showed a net gain in membership for the 2021-2022 Grange year. Let’s be a part of the growth by planning activities, community service outreach and other events to show what the Grange is, what we do and get more people involved.
