GRANGERS MIX RAT BAIT
Bradford-Sullivan County Pomona Grange members mixed rat bait at the Wysox Agway Feed Mill on October 23, 1967. Co-chairman of the event were Mrs. Ruth Fish and Glenn Ford. Mrs. Fish is pictured standing far left; Mr.Ford is on knees in right foreground.
Grange members of Bradford and Sullivan Counties mix rat bait each year as a community service activity in conjunction with the Bradford County Cooperative Extension Service.
Grange members solicit orders for this bait which sells for $1.00 per five pounds. This year one and one-half tons of bait were mixed and packaged, This should go a long way to cut down on the Bradford County rat population.
