We who wear the RED VESTS are the young people who belong to the Grange and are part of the Grange Youth Fair Program. We are readily identified by the red vests that we wear when showing our animals at the Fair. If you are interest in having a Grange Youth Fair Program organized in your area, you can contact for more information.
