The Grange is a community based, fraternal organization that enjoys working to support the needs of our Wallowa County community. We volunteer hundreds of hours of assistance at events throughout the year. As Patrons of Husbandry, Grange has a rich history in agriculture and education.
Hurricane Creek Grange meets the Second Tuesday of the month at 6:00 PM in our Grange Hall at 82930 Airport Lane, Joseph, Oregon. Visitors are welcome. See the About Us page for more information.
Our New Floor -- January, 2021
The floor in our Grange Hall is new!
The Hurricane Creek Grange Hall was constructed around 1927. The 93 year old red fir flooring has served the Grange very well; however, it had been sanded and re-surfaced so many times that the tongue-in-grove edges had begun to splinter becoming a potential hazard. After several years of saving from fundraisers, generous donations from members and the community, and a $5,000 matching grant from the Oregon State Grange, we were able to contract with Jeff Micka to replace the floor with a high quality red oak at a cost of about $25,000. Several Grange members assisted with removing the old flooring. The Grange hopes the new floor lasts for the next 100 years.
Great Potato Drive of Spring, 2020
The Great Potato Drive was a great success!
Hurricane Creek Grange held a great project coordinated by member Randi Jandt. Working to support the Oregon Food Bank through our regional Community Connections and partnering with local potato farmer, Patrick Theil, to prepare and deliver over 1,500 pounds of potatoes to Community Connection in La Grande, Grange members have contributed over $1,500 for the Great Potato Drive.
Second Saturday Breakfast -- Come in, enjoy breakfast, and visit with your neighbors
Hurricane Creek Grange offers an All-You-Can-Eat Breakfast on the second Saturday of each month from 8:00 AM to 11:00 AM at our Grange Hall. We offer pancakes, eggs, bacon, sausage gravy, and biscuits with coffee, juice, and hot chocolate. A donation of $8.00 for adults, $4.00 for children under 12 is requested. Stop by and enjoy a great meal and have fun visiting with folks from throughout the community.
Community BBQ -- August, 2019
Our August 18th, 2019 Community BBQ was a great success.
