Long Description:
The Long Tom Grange is the sponsor for the Junction City "Daffodil Festival" (visit link) which is held each spring. The grange provides a simple map to help participants find them easily. (visit link)

The men of the grange made national news in 2004 by creating a beefcake calendar to raise money for local education. Hugely successful the effort brought in more than $250,000 dollars according to one report. This calendar was among the first of its kind and many other groups have created calendars of this sort after the Long Tom Grange's and others early successes. (visit link)

Visit Instructions:
To post a visit to an existing Grange Hall waymark, you will need to post a picture of the front of the building, with the name of the chapter in the background if that is possible. Including your gps device in the picture is not neccesary, but wouldn't be cause for disapproval. If your Grange Hall has any unusual or unique features that you feel others would enjoy viewing, additional pictures are always welcome.
