[Update: We are so very sad to say that the movie, concert, Lyceum and all public events scheduled for the rest of March have been cancelled due to the public health situation. The Grange is available to our community if the building or our volunteers are needed. We will be here (or anywhere) for our community. Stay in touch here on Facebook or at our website: www.thegrangehall.info.]

“Waititi’s faith in the notion that a child will lead us out of ignorance may be naïve. It’s also deeply affecting.” — Rolling Stone
