ORLAND — For decades, Victory Grange served as the social hub of the farming community in North Orland.
Meetings were held twice a month, and events such as hunters breakfasts, bean suppers and musical performances provided a chance for fellowship and a sense of community.
Like the farms that used to dot the local landscape and the families that tended to them, however, the Grange on Bald Mountain Road has now faded into the realm of the past.
Though the building still stands, eight of the remaining members of Victory Grange gathered on May 4 for a final meeting and voted to resign the organization’s charter.
That action formally brings the group’s history to an end. Victory Grange, chartered April 29, 1920, had turned 93 only five days before.
