We had fun with the Clackamas County Fair theme "See the Old and New in 2022". Our version was The Evolution of Communication in Rural America. To begin with, we focused on the line of communication from long ago in the form of talking to the ol' plow horse right up through the modern day, high end tractor with multiple devices used for farming. We also included a line of telephones from an antique, wall mounted model from the 1800's right up to today's cell phones and tablet. In other "words", we also included written communication from an old ink well and pen, a typewriter, a word processor and a laptop, all displayed on a newer style of an old fashioned roll-top desk. We completed the look with an antique quilt and chair.
The local Lions club meets at our grange for their meetings each month
and, in December each year, they gather and present gifts (note the bags on the floor), boxes of food and other items to needy families in our area. I think there were over a hundred families in 2019!
Pictured here are Granger Don, Lion Dean, Lion Mike and Granger Leila
In 2018. we joined the community celebration of the annual tree lighting , holding our first community potluck dinner. We welcomed and joined many folks from the community in great feast & fellowship!
In 2017, we enjoyed the meeting with our membership family and had a visitor! Photo opp!
We appreciate the veterans who protect our country, inside and out!
We honor those in our Grange each Veterans Day. In 2015, we presented each with a flag commemorating our appreciation.

We participate in the Words for Thirds program. Each year we hand out dictionaries to 3rd grade students. In 2016, we handed out dictionaries at Butte Creek Elementary. We received, in turn, many smiling faces lit up with joy at having their very own dictionary, and many, many thank yous!
Congratulations Beavercreek Grange member Ken Humbertson, new Clackamas County Commissioner! Do our county proud!
Cody and Dusty (pictured) and Bill Hood are very grateful for the support!
Many came and enjoyed breakfast with us and joined us in supporting these Boy Scouts and their leader-Dad (and BSA Ranger) to raise money to attend the National Jamboree in Washington D.C. this coming July (2017). Fundraising continues and we will have a support jar out at each of our breakfasts if you want to join the fun. They are helpful at most of our breakfasts and we appreciate their help!
Hall and Property clean-up
It's amazing what a little, well a LOT of weed eating and trimming will do for a place! (pictured right, Don Furlan)
Updating electrical wiring was essential (pictured below, Bud and Gary Dumolt).........and cleaning and organizing all the kitchen cupboards and store room was time consuming but worth it! (pictured below right, Kim Schettig)
