Whereas, The Grange is the world's first Farm Fraternal Association; and

Whereas, The Grange increases the influence of each of its members by giving them the opportunity to serve their community through projects and programs that make a difference in the lives of children, youth and our neighbors in need of assistance; and
Whereas, The West Virginia State Grange has served the State of West Virginia since June, 1873; therefore, be it
Resolved by the House of Delegates:
That the House of Delegates designates March 10, 2009, as "West Virginia State Grange Day"; and, be it
Further Resolved, That the Clerk of the House of Delegates forward a certified copy of this resolution to the appropriate representatives of the West Virginia State Grange.
