The annual VT State Session, which took place on Oct. 19 & 20th, considered the Resolutions which had been proposed by various Community and Pomona Granges. Here’s a link to all the Resolutions, with the State Session results highlighted. Some of the Resolutions were re-written by the appropriate State Session Committee, and then approved “as rewritten”. As the voting Delegate from Capital City Grange, I followed the wishes of the Grange members who let me know of the proposed Resolutions, as well as using my own judgement. My votes were sometimes with the majority, and sometimes with the minority.
I will try to find an opportunity to look at my notes from the State Session about why the whole body voted as it did, and will add notes to this PDF when I can. –Tim Swartz, President

Here are all 19 of the resolutions that will be considered at the October VT State Grange Session. A wide variety of topics are included–from restricting the use of “neonicitinoid” pesticides, to reducing the emphasis on secrecy in Grange proceedings, to changing the day of elections and Town meetings, to eliminating Daylight Savings Time. Please take a look at them, and come to our October 6th meeting, to discuss what our Grange wants to advocate for or against, among these ideas. What we decide on at that meeting will guide our 2 voting representatives as we consider them in committees, and when we vote on accepting, rejecting, or re-wording them.
If you can’t come to the meeting, please email comments to: firstname.lastname@example.org, and we’ll include your feedback.
