Lone Yew Grange In New Home

Toledo, Nov. 4. - Lone Yew Grange is now established in its new home, which is practically completed, except for painting, decorating and dedicating. It is hoped this may be done soon. The Grange home is located about 400 feet off the Pacific highway and a mile and one-half south of Toledo. Look for sign at the top of Salmon creek hill. The members are proud of their new hall, which was erected entirely by volunteer labor by members and friends of the Lone Yew Grange living in the community.A congenial and harmonious real Grange spirit is in evidence in the Grange and it is felt that it is a healthy Grange. The last regular meeting last Wednesday evening was attended by thirty-five local members and about twenty visitors who came in during the lecture hour. Visitors from other Granges were Master and Sister Teitzel of Forest Union, Brother and Sister Buswell and daughters Ellen and Wilma, also Cora Blaine, all of Cowlitz Bend Grange; Brother and Sister Davenport, Grangers from Clark county and Brother Nick Stadt of Cowlitz county. Complimentary talks on the new hall were given by all the visitors. A good program was followed by a supper served by the young men which was enjoyed by all. Games and dancing followed.

At the next meeting, which will be held November 11, the electric lights will have been installed in the hall. The meeting following on November 25 will be election of officers for the coming year.


The Toledo P.-T. A. will meet next Monday night, November 9, at the high school aduitorium. Those interested in the welfare of our schools should attend these meetings and become members of the organization. The meetings are instructive and entertaining and the program is always good.
