We are in the heart of summer! The lodge has slowed down. We accomplished some marvelous things this past year. The building is looking good inside. And outside - an unsung hero would be Jim Nichols for keeping the lawn looking crisp and making some improvements outside. Thank you! We were praised by Moose International for our work in growing membership. Thanks to all the sponsors out there. We need to continue that effort and the improvements will create an environment for fellowship and fraternalism. Please keep up the great work!
Starting in July, we will not have music or food Wednesday nights. Unfortunately the support hasn't been there and we need to reduce costs in order to provide a stable financial situation only for the summer. Murray and Son were great and folks loved them. They will return in the fall and winter some.
It is important to note - and we have made our summer residents aware, that the Lodge and Lodge property is not a place for drugs of any kind. I am embarrassed to have to mention this, but drugs are everywhere in fraternal organizations, but I am seriously committed to ensuring that they will not be here in our Lodge. The local Sheriff will be supporting our efforts and is happy to support us in many ways - both outside and inside our Lodge. Our Moose Lodge is unique and we will not become a "bar." We need to continue our efforts to get back to the Moose Fraternal Basics. Cameras have been installed and we will be able to monitor with over 20 cameras installed. The Sheriff and undercover agents are welcome into our lodge at any time. We will continue to grow and flourish. The very few people who have abused their rights as Moose Members will need to go somewhere else. We have made the Right Choice. And Success is a Choice.
We need to congratulate Dick Hammond on becoming a Pilgrim. Dick and his wife, Rubye, have supported and provided leadership throughout their careers with Moose Lodges. We are proud to have them as Moose Members and leaders in our Lodge! We will have a Pilgrim Celebration in Dick's honor this fall!
We are looking forward to having the entire family back this fall! Let's Rock - On!!!!
