Jane Eckert's Mother and the Grange

Jane Eckert has visited the Kansas Flint Hills regularly in recent years, and many of us enjoy following her blog. Normally, she shares marketing information for agritourism businesses, every tip is very valuable for rural economic development.

The recent entry, however, tells of her mother being recognized for 70 years of active membership in the local Turkey Hill Grange. Jane then shares how she spent her youth involved in Grange activities from the farm as well. It brought back many early memories of my life on a farm in western Iowa, as well.

All of our efforts to retain and share the joys and benefits of rural life and keep them available for future generations are well worth it!

See you in the Kansas Flint Hills! ;-)
