From the Administrator
We had a very busy September and it looks like October is going to be even busier. I hope you got a chance to be at the Pilgrim Ceremony for Bob weeks on Sunday September 25. It was my first Pilgrim Ceremony and it was very impressive. Congratulations again to Moose Lodge 898’s new Pilgrim, Bob Weeks.
The second Town Hall meeting was held on Sunday September 18. There was quite a bit of discussion on the new lodge building committee. It was again stressed that the committee will not be the Board of Officers, but a collection of both men and women. The next organizational committee meeting will be held on October 4, 7:00 PM. If you are interested and want a voice and are ready to work hard and attend all meetings, please join us.
Look in this issue for the first of many post about how you can donate to Moose Charities, Moose Haven. This month it’s Shop-a-roo. Many of theses opportunities do not require cash from you. Others may require small donations, but remember your pledge to support Moose Charitable causes.
If you are wondering why there are people at the lodge every day this month, they are here for the City of Chesapeake Absentee Ballot Station until Nov 5.
Start making plans for our Blood drive that is being held on Nov 12, 12-5. you can sign up in the office.
District one quarterly meeting will be held a Portsmouth Moose Lodge on October 2 at 12:00 lunch will be served. Be there to represent your lodge.
Please note that the email collection is still going on. We have received very few emails letting us know that you would like your newsletter by email or postal service. One more month to let us know. Remember there will be a drawing for $100.
The final item from our lodge renovation loan is complete. The new Heat & A/C unit in the Bingo Hall.
Til next month, I am Fraternally yours,
Bob Knight - Administrator
