Grange Hall Trim Repaired and Painted!


Our old Grange hall needs continual maintenance in order to serve the community. Towards this effort long overdo work has been  done on window trim, with plans to finish painting the rest of the exterior next year. We were fortunate to have enough one of our Quimper Grange Old Time Jam regulars, Bill Dwyer, volunteer to repair rotten  trim on one of our windows so all of our trim could be painted at the same time. We hired the services of Roger Smith to re-caulk and paint the trim before nasty weather sets in. He did an excellent job! Check it out.
In order to do repairs and upgrade our hall we depend on your generous donations hall rentals. These are the only sources of income we have to keep Quimper Grange going. Keeping that in mind if you would like to make a year end donation to Quimper Grange that will be used for maintenance and improvements. You can do so by making a check payable to Quimper Grange and sending it to to:
