THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO ATTENDED THE THURSDAY, JUNE 17TH, 6PM
COMMUNITY MEETING TO DISCUSS THE GRANGE LAWSUIT & FUTURE OF THE HALL

For those of you who weren't able to join, or who would like to review the material, we are providing the following links:

Video of the Meeting. Unfortunately, we are not great technicians and the sound is pretty bad in some sections in the second half. However, the presentations are clear and there is still a lot there. The first part is an introduction by Tamara Myers of Freshwater Hall on the National v CA State Grange disputes that started back c2006. At about minute 0:13, Carolyn Jones of Bayside Hall gives a summary of Bayside's actions, progress since 2018, and what the lawyers are saying are the options for resolution. Q&A starts around minute 0:34, with Brian Curtis of Bayside fielding questions. Comments from attendees start at around 1:00. At minute 1:32 CA State Grange Deputy Will Shaw gives his pitch for why we should return to the grange. This is followed by a counter-proposal from Bayside for a mutually beneficial resolution.

Presentation Slides from the Meeting. The introductory history of the legal dispute has been summarized in a timeline. A couple of slides have been added to address questions that were asked at the meeting.

If you have any questions after reviewing these materials, please send an email to baysidecommunityhall@gmail.com and we'll do our best to find answers.

Deciding the Future of Bayside Hall Survey. After you have taken some time to review the meeting materials, please take this survey to tell us how you would like to see the Hall proceed.

Petition to the CA State Grange to pursue a mutually beneficial resolution to this dispute, one that declares local ownership of all grange halls, provides a place for chartered granges to meet, and at the same time allows halls to act autonomously in support of the whole of their communities. If you agree with this petition, please sign it and pass the link along.
