March 2020 Quimper Grange Events

Last night, Governor Inslee announced that there will be a statewide ban on all bars, restaurants and recreational facilities. 

Accordingly, we've decided to make the hard decision to close down all Quimper Grange events; both those sponsored by us and those sponsored by others in order to keep this pandemic at bay here in our community.

There will likely be more updates to our operations as things continue to unfold. Rest assured that we will keep you informed as changes occur. Check for updates!

Thank you again for your forbearance and ongoing support. 

Stay well,

The Quimper Grange Board

3/13 - we are cancelling all Grange events for the rest of March.  This does not include rentals/rental classes. Please talk to them directly.

Stay safe everyone!  Wash hands, read books!

As of 3/7 we will be cancelling Balkan Dance Party, the Contra dance, and the Todalo Shakers concert (hope to reschedule in October).  Our jam sessions are small and no immediate contact, so will have them unless things change.  We will have the Instrument sale on April 4th Noon - 2. We are waiting 2 weeks before deciding about the Balfolk dance.  Make sure to wash your hands, and do stay home if you are not feeling well. Stay safe!

Hello all!
In addition to our Instrument Sale on March 14th, we are ramping up for celebrating our 100th in April.  Save the date for our open House April 25th 1-4pm.
Side note - the Plant and Seed exchange is changing venue - they have their own place now.  Check bareboards for March 22nd for details.

Feb 29th 7pm Canote Brothers Concert!
