Messages from the Johnstown Moose Lodge
From the Board of Officers
Attention Veterans - how many times have you responded to “Thank You for Your Service”. This time we want to honor you.
Moose International and our Lodge want to pay tribute to you and your fellow Moose Veterans at a Dinner Party, a date to be determined in November. First, you need to self-identify as a veteran with Moose International. A specialized membership card, PIN and Certificate of Appreciation will be presented to you. Please review the Valued Veterans Program Flyer in this newsletter. More details of the fall ceremony will be published in the few months.
We are going back to basics in requesting that all members present their membership cards when in the social quarters. Bartenders will begin asking to see your cards in July. Your card needs to be available for all purchases. Our liquor license is issued for us to serve card holding members and properly signed-in guests. Liquor Authority agents make unannounced visits and if members cannot provide their membership cards we could lose our liquor license.
The District Meeting and Caucus will be in Schenectady August 6th.
From the Governor
We are looking at making some renovations and sprucing up the Lodge. New bar stools have been ordered, but they are still a month away from delivery. The Board is meeting with the WOTM to gather ideas to remodel the social quarters and both banquet rooms. We are acquiring a contractor to remodel the ladies room and looking into painting the exterior peaks of the building.
Wire is being installed under the pavilion roof to beep pigeons from roosting. By popular demand we are bringing back the family picnic Sunday August 13th from 1 PM to 5 PM (Please see the flyer for details). If you haven’t been to the Lodge lately we have added serving boneless chicken wings during Thursday’s wing night
Your Governor, Greg
From the Senior Regent
Summer is finally upon us and l am sure just like us here at the Moose, everybody is going to be very busy. I would like to Thank everybody that has taken the time to volunteer as our dinners and raffles have been well received. We are always looking for volunteers so if you would like to help, please feel free to see me or a Board Member and we will gladly find somewhere for you to help. Our meetings are held at 6:45 on the 1st and 3rd Mondays of each month if you would to join us to see what we are all about and what we have going on. Also please check out our Moose News as we have lots of fun things coming up.
ln Closing, We here at the Moose would like you to Keep Betty Dalleo and Deb Tubbs in your prayers as they go through some difficult times. Speedy recovery to both of you!
Your Senior Regent,
From the Recorder
We reached our goal of 110 new members joining us last year and retained our membership count of 783. Well done ladies especially Greta Davis who makes a lot of calls monthly. We have not heard if we achieved the Award of Achievement yet at the time of this writing, but l am sure we did. I have sent out over 60 letters to members who are back on their dues, hopefully many will be catching up and continuing to assist us in keeping Mooseheart and Moosehaven going for years to come.
Congratulations to Dee Sutliff she will be getting her College of Regents Degree in Tampa in luly. Our Senior regent Denise Coco and her officers and chairmen have many events planned for July and August. Please come and support them! We need to say special prayers for our members going through serious medical issues please!
Cindy Wright will keep in touch through her “We care” cards. Pay your dues on time and come enjoy the club!
We want to meet you all!
