Messages from the Johnstown Moose Lodge
From the Board of Officers
First, congratulations to James H. Wallace for attaining 50 years of service in the Loyal Order of Moose. He has demonstrated loyalty, dedication, commitment and pride to the Moose mission.
We express a world of gratitude to Steve Manoogian, George Purdy, loan Hamm, Steve Whitbeck and Mark Jacobitz for many continuous years of volunteer service preparing and serving our orientation dinners. These members are retiring so please join us in thanking and congratulating them on a job well done. We will miss you dearly.
We have many exciting upcoming events such as Moosefest, Halloween and the Saturday Happy Hour kitchen will be coming back mid-September. Moosefest is our biggest fundraiser and open to the public. We appreciate it if you could donate baskets and gift certificates that we could raffle at this event. Tickets are on sale now. Check the newsletter for details.
The District Meeting will be held at the Ilion Lodge on October29 at 11:00 AM with breakfast from 9:30 to 10:30.

I Hope you like the new bar stools that were recently purchased. We have a contractor for remodeling the ladies room and materials have been ordered. Thank you to the volunteers that continue to mow the lawn and trim bushes, along with all of you who continue to support our many functions. We are always looking to the increase our membership so bring your friends to the Lodge. Show them what we are about, showcase the Lodge and hopefully you can sponsor new members. The end of summer is always a good time to get back to the Lodge and rekindle friendships.
Your Governor, Greg
