example: Richard Hazen of the Fredonia Grange recently went to his local credit union to get a new debit card. Little did he know there would be a fourth grader standing behind him at the front desk – a boy quite familiar with the Fredonia Grange. He told Mr. Hazen that the Grange came to his school last year and gave him a dictionary.
