Dear Brothers and Co-Workers, Summer is officially here and we are looking forward to all the Summertime events here at the lodge. Be sure to look at this month’s calendar for the events that might interest you. Bingo, Poker, Karioki, or the big dance on 6/19, Legion/Friendship Dance with ‘Wild Heart’.
The WOTM will be starting the ‘School Supplies” drive on June 1. Don’t forget to contribute what you can.
We are deep into the Lodge improvements. I’m sure you can see the results of all the work. The pool is filled in, the interior is completly painted (which included repairs of the termite damaged door frames in the Bingo Hall), there is a new door to the dining room, a new high efficiency hot water heater, a new walk in freezer and two new HVAC units are in. You might also notice the new siding on the old pool house. We still have a few more items to finish, but it won’t be long. We are also looking forward to the use of the patio area outside of the Game Room. It should be nice for the summertime.
Although we made our membership numbers this past Moose year, that doesn’t mean we can rest on our laurels. We now have to beat that number next year. So, let’s start early by sponsoring a new member every month this year. If you can do that, you will have contributed 12 new members. Wouldn’t that be amazing? We can do it, let’s grow Moose Lodge 898 into the best in Virginia.
As always, my door is open to anyone of you who would like to stop in a chat about the future of our lodge. By the way, have you volunteered this month? You are needed. (Bingo?)
I hope you enjoy your summer.
