Community Tides ~ 10/21/22

(Airdate: October 21, 2022) This week on Community Tides, KPTZ’s Chris Bricker and co-host Siobhan Canty, President & CEO of Jefferson Community Foundation, find out more about the history of Quimper Grange and the movement that sparked it. Over time, the building has enjoyed a physical renaissance to become a welcome gathering place for 21st century Port Townsend.  The first Quimper Grange master was Jacob Miller, and for the first 30 years, Grange meetings were held in his chicken house The current building itself was a donated barracks originally built for the Women’s Army Auxiliary Corps at Fort Worden.  Quimper Grange’s Sheila Blech Long tells us more and paints us a picture of the newly renovated building, hall, and dance floor, along with information about meeting there, playing music there, dancing there – and of course, joining the Grange.
