Volunteers working to re-raise the Grange


They plan to paint the kitchen and install a new stove.

"The Health Department came and said we've got to put in a sewage system and potable water," Fitzgerald said.

"What we hope to do is establish a wonderful cultural center, not only for Whallonsburg and the Town of Essex, but for the surrounding area."

People interested in lending a hand to help renovate the grange hall or those who wish to make financial or other in-kind contributions, can contact the Friends of the Grange at 962-4386.

Work crews are needed for painting, landscaping and smaller construction projects.

"There's plenty of work to be done," Cornell said.
