On 2nd Monday Grange meetings, new prospects are accepted into Grange membership. Around 6:45. after the business meeting, Community "Hub" members discuss and plan communications and events regarding local "Spoke" members. This promotes neighborliness, security and trust among our MAGs (Mutual Assistance Groups).
We also give a preview of upcoming INWP events for the Grange and other locations. This is also your time to request special events & set up dates and times for them.
The more INWP members we have IN the Grange, the more we get to approve what we want to do. Just a thought . . .
NO need to RSVP; just bring a snack to share!
Bring your questions and comments, and we'll do our best to find answers for you. Moderated by small farm owner Russ Spriggs, NRA Instructor, HAM Operator ki7biv, 42-year Beekeeper, former Military Survival Instructor, experienced off-gridder and founder of www.inwPrep.com. All aspects of sustainable living and preparedness are fair game, including homesteading, gardening, greenhouses, livestock, communications, food & water and self-defense.
We'll create as the Group directs, and this may mean swap & sell meets, Dutch Oven Cooking, workshops, and group projects to assist fellow members. Above all, we'll have FUN as we develop COMMunications within our COMMunity!
As a common ground, we strongly suggest everyone purchase several items, all available through Amazon:
Several BaoFeng UV5R radios (that will stretch to 520 mHz) and accessories to include AA battery power-packs, stubby antennas, Nagoya 771 Whip antennas, magnetic car mount antennas with adaptor, and pole-mount house antennas with adaptor wires. We'll help you sort it out, don't worry!
