Norwell Grange Hosts Open House

Thank you to The Norwell Grange for hosting a fantastic open house over the weekend! The Norwell Grange is an agricultural association aimed at leadership and community improvement through its commitment to expand agriculture education.
The organization is in the process of some significant renovations to its building – including updated electrical, plumbing, and HVAC, window repairs, exterior repairs/painting, new accessible bathrooms, and a new commercial kitchen.
