From the Alexander news column by Cassie Oakes: The Alexander Grange Hall was a busy place this past week. It all began on Tuesday the 16th when Kids at the Grange met with guest speaker and Granger Lenny Hanson. The topic of the day was safe hiking. The kids then decorated backpacks and filled them with some items that would be helpful during a hike. Of course, there is always some unplanned fun when the kids found some mushrooms and quizzed herbalist and Granger Esther Tozer about them.
