Upcoming events include the Family Picnic and the Moose Fest, keep an eye out for information. Take a look at our new Game Room - we have all new gaming machines, come try your luck! Getting the most of your dues: take a ride out to Mooseheart. It always makes your heart feel glad to be a member of something so inspirational! As summertime comes upon us, please be aware of kids on bicycles and watch for motorcyclists. We all share the road and we want everyone to have a safe and enjoyable summer!
We used to be #1 in the state, now we are #2 for membership. Let's see if we can get back our rightful place as the leader in membership. In the social quarters is a list of members who are currently delinquent. Check it out and give one a call so we can get them back. Consider signing up your friends and family. There are great opportunities for insurance and once you have been a member for at least 15 years, you are qualified to go to Moosehaven!
Remember the rule that a woman can bring in a man and vice versa. We want to bring back our previous members, so please do your part. Don’t forget the Moose Rewards program. Check it out at mooseintl.org Brochures are behind the bar. You can earn 6000 points for sponsoring your FIRST new or re-enrolled member and each additional member is 600 points. Invite your qualified guests (friends and family) down to the Moose and show them all we have to offer!
Come watch your favorite ball games on the 13 Flat Screen HDTVs we have! Baseball is in full swing and we'd love to see you watching with us! Watch for upcoming specials for Sunday games!
A Word from Our Senior Regent ~ Judy Beaton
I would like to start out by thanking everyone who played a part in our installation held on April 29, 2018. Our new board member are: Sr. Regent Judy Beaton, Jr Grad Regent, Sheri Pierce, Jr Regent Joan Florynski, Recorder Kim Galvan, Sec/Treas Cathy Lamontagne, Guide Pauline Dixon and Assistant Guide Maria Diver. I am looking for a successful and fun year!
It's time to start thinking about our state convention in St. Louis. You will find registration forms in the lobby of the lodge when they become available, or go to our Moose International website for information. Our Lockport chapter will assist the Joliet women who will be hosting this year's conference. Please consider making the trip to help support the Joliet chapter. The conference is both informative and can be a great deal of fun!
Canal Day Week-end is just around the corner. We will be selling ice freeze pops and raffling off a gas grill. More details will be posted in the lodge as they are finalized. There are tentative plans for some upcoming events throughout the year, watch our website for details as they become available.
Finally, I invite all WOTM to attend our meetings held on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month at 7 pm. I look forward to seeing familiar and new faces at our meetings, we are always looking for new and fresh ideas.
