.Members of the Cadmus Grange celebrated its 150th anniversary on Saturday much in the same way the community celebrated it when it was founded on July 21, 1873. While the Cadmus community is not as large as it was 150 years ago, the anniversary celebration was reminiscent of celebration of its founding when neighbors got together to visit, eat, listen to music, play games ,and eat some more.
