Yes, there is.

See this blog entry that describes something similar:

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee176843.aspx

Essentially, you have your users in a text file, one per line.  Then in powershell:

Get-Content c:\pathtofile.txt | Foreach-Object {Add-DistributionGroupMember -Identity "group name" -Member &_

Try it with 1 user first.  You may need to add quotes around the &_ which is what pulls in the username for the line it's on.
