The Newport Lodge F&AM #381 and Royal Arch Chapter #238, both Masonic bodies, are no longer meeting in the Perry Valley Grange Hall. The Masonic groups moved into a new leased facility in Newport at the beginning of 2013.
It is with mixed emotion that Perry Valley Grange announces that its property has been put on the market for sale. Over the past 10 years, it has become increasingly difficult for a small group of Grange volunteers to give enough time and energy to both maintain the property and raise the thousands of dollars needed annually to pay for repairs, improvements, utilities and insurance costs. We are saddened to have to take this action and regret that the facilities may no longer be available for the use of the community. However, we also look forward to the time when we will be able to concentrate even more of our available time, energy and resources on community service activities.
We have no idea if or when the property might be sold. Until the sale is settled, the Grange will continue all activities here. Public dinners, banquets and receptions will be booked no more than 60 days in advance so we are able to guarantee availability of the space.
