FROM THE ADMINISTRATOR;
Another month has passed and we continue to improve our lodge facility. If you haven't noticed, there is a new deck out by the scout pavilion. It will soon have a cover over it. We hope to have several functions out there this summer. Under the cover, out of the sun and rain. Also the scout pavilion is getting new ceiling fans and lights. A needed upgrade.
I’m still running the ‘Super Raffle’ for only $10 per ticket with only 200 tickets being sold. This is a fundraiser to raise money to install a white privacy fence in front of the old pool area, behind the new Christmas tree and shrubs. Should improve the curb appeal.
We are sending a request for new kitchen equipment to Moose International as part of the ‘Grant Program’ that International is offering. They have a million dollars to ‘give’ to lodges to improve or upgrade their facilities. This is free money that we don’t have to pay back. This is the third year and hopefully, since we didn’t get any the last two years, we will get some this year. Keep your fingers crossed.
I want to thank everyone who came out to the Town Meeting. I think it was a great success. Lots of good communication and some good ideas were exchanged. The two Boards have met and discussed some of the ideas and recommendations and you will see some of those results soon. Look forward to another meeting in a month or two.
Have you talked with anyone about Loyal Order of Moose, MooseHeart or Moosehaven? Have you attempted to recruit any new members? Remember, it’s only $50 for a new member. And you can get double points on your Moose Rewards this month. Now is a great time to sign a member.
If you play electronic pull tabs, be aware of some new guidelines for play. Please remember that we are all members of the same Fraternity and should treat each other with respect. This goes for all our Brothers and Co-workers.
Finally, I would like to extend my personal congratulations to Brother Bob Weeks for becoming a Pilgrim. It is quite an honor for him and he is well deserving of this recognition.
