Work Emphasizes Volunteerism
Lancaster Farming Staff
CARLISLE (Cumberland
Co.) In 1986, Granger of the
Year Harold Steeley, Ottsville,
said he sold the cows on his
dairy and “went to work.”
From the stallbarn to the
kitchen, that is.
The 55-year Pomona, state,
and national Grange member
“retired” from dairying, which
had been his life for more than
40 years, to not only work part
time at Moyer’s Chicks Inc,
Quakertown, but to put on the
apron strings.
According to Bill Steel, state
Grange Master, Steeley “is a
cook one of those things I like
to do,” he told about 300 Grange
members gathered Monday eve
ning for the annual banquet.
Steeley’s specialty: oyster

bakes. “Oyster dinners,” said
Steel. “We need more of them.”
All in a good cause, of course.
Steeley’s cooking has gone a
long way to raise money for
Grange charities.
Steeley, married to Ruth, was
honored Monday evening with
the coveted Granger of the Year
honor at the 128th edition of the
Pennsylvania State Grange
Convention at the Clarion (for
merly Embers) Hotel in Carlisle.
Since becoming a member of
Junior Grange at the age of 5,
Steeley has served on the Plum
steadville Junior Grange #37
until he was 16. Afterward, he
served as master three times of
the Plumsteadville Grange
