Blue Ridge Grange celebrates member
By Josie Sellers
Jean Rausch was surprised with a special presentation by her fellow Blue Ridge Grange members on June 24 at Lafayette Pointe in West Lafayette , where she resides .
Grange master Bill Somerville , Nancy Somerville , Janice Braniger , Sherry Cognion and Connie Patterson gathered together at the nursing and rehab center to present Rausch with a pin celebrating her 80 years of membership to the Blue Ridge Grange . They also brought with them special pillow cases made for her and her fellow Lafayette Pointe residents .
While Rausch ’ s 80-year pin was being given to her , Bill Somerville read a letter from Sue Roy , master / president of the Ohio State Grange .
The letter said , “ During 80 years you have demonstrated and promoted the grange way of life as instructed in the third degree : ‘ be faithful , be hopeful and be charitable .’ Today , on this very special occasion , we join the membership of Blue Ridge Grange # 1448 to thank you for your loyalty

Rausch said she has really enjoyed spending time with her fellow grange members . “ I like our get-togethers and the things we do , which are for others mostly ,” she said . “ I just enjoy all of it .”
Rausch said if her time in the Junior Grange counted , she would have even more years of membership .
Blue Ridge Grange members presented 80-year member Jean Rausch with pillow cases that have her name embroidered on them .
“ I started when I was 5 ,” she said . “ My family was very much involved . The grange booth at the fair was one of my favorite things to do and helping with lunches . We ’ ve just done so many things .”
The pillow cases Rausch received have her name embroidered on them , and the others were made of cheerful patterns .
“ We picked patterns that will hopefully remind ( the residents ) of things they did ,” Cognion said . “ We included a birthday one too in case anyone is celebrating a birthday today or this week .”
The grange members made more than 60 pillow cases and plan to share some with residents at Riverside Manor Nursing & Rehabilitation Center in Newcomerstown .
“ This is really great ,” said Justin Warne , president of the residence council at Lafayette Pointe . “( The residents ) will love them , and they will brighten their day .”
Several grange members worked on the project , and others provided fabric .
“ We wanted to cheer them up and provide a little smile and color on their bed ,” Cognion said .
