Messages from the Johnstown Moose

From the Board of Officers

Thank you to Steve Whitbeck and SEFCU for their continued support and donations. SEFCU donated two bicycles during our Fall children’s raffle and many items during the year. Thank you to all the people that volunteered their services this year to the club. The wing and dinner crews, people that mowed grass and trimmed bushes, those that change the fryer oil, installed wire in the pavilion and so much more. To show our appreciation, volunteers are invited to the volunteer dinner – details in the flyer.

Congratulations to Jeff Phillips for receiving the 2017 Moose of the Year award. Jeff has volunteered many hours toward cooking for orientation and Friday dinners. He also has his own wing crew for Thursday and cooks for our special events. Our hats are off to you, Jeff, for a tremendous job.
The Board tabled painting the building peaks until April due to cold weather.

Hope you enjoy the new carpeting that was purchased and installed by a grant from Moose International with no cost to the Lodge.

From the Governor

Another year is upon us and I wish you all a healthy and joyous New Year. As always, we are in need of volunteers so we are starting off the New Year with a volunteer campaign. Inside the newsletter is a flyer that I ask you to fill out and hand in to any bartender. Without volunteers we could not exist. Please help where you can. Thank You.


Your Governor, Greg

From the Senior Regent

Happy New Year Everyone!

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and was able to spend time relaxing and enjoying time with family and friends.

As we are now entering into the cold and snowy weather, I hope you can find time to come in and enjoy some of our delicious dinners we have planned for the next 2 months – check the calendar for some of your favorites.

As we begin the New Year – I would like to encourage you to find time to come in and volunteer with upcoming dinners or events. Check out more information to volunteering in the newsletter.

Also, don’t forget our monthly meeting held on the 1st and 3rd Monday each month at 6:45pm. Would love to see you attend. Please check the newsletter for some of our upcoming events and we hope to see you there! If you have any suggestions on what you would like us to do, see a board member, we would love to hear them.

Happy 2018 – Let’s Make it a GREAT Year!

Your Senior Regent,

Denise Coco

From the Recorder

Happy New Year, the holidays are over and the New Year has begun. We have 4 more months in our fiscal year and WE NEED YOUR HELP PLEASE. Since May 1, 2016 we have had 106+ coworkers who have not paid their dues. The Board of Officers, Chairmen and supporting coworkers are working hard to provide you with events, raffles, dinners and entertainment and they would like to make their honors and receive their degrees. We Need to have at least have to have one more member/enrolled paid up than we had as of May 1st 2016. We have to have 784 members in current status as of April 31st 2018. Please pay up your dues and this will enable us to continue to help the children of Mooseheart and the seniors at Moosehaven.

If someone or something upsets you, come to us, DON’T drop your membership. We can help if we know what you need and want. We would love to meet you and have you join us in our meetings.
You can pay your dues online by going to the Moose International website and click “Pay Dues” you will need your membership number, enter it and follow the prompts POOF it is that easy and the fastest way to pay your dues and get your new card. You can pay at the bar, preferably cash as that is the fastest way to process your renewal, please ensure that your ID# is printed on your receipt. If you prefer to pay at the bar by check, PLEASE make it out to “MOOSE INTERNATIONAL” then we can just mail it out. The best way to pay is when you get your notice in the mail, then your membership will never lapse. You may also pay for a life membership which is $400.00 for LIFE, never have to worry about paying your dues again, or dues increases. This is great for all of our new young members.

Please continue to enjoy your Lodge, let us know what you want and need. We are here for you. As always call me if you need to, Nora Pavlak, YOUR VOLUNTEER RECORDER. Remember we are all volunteers so BE NICE!!! We are all here for YOU.

Your Recorder,

Nora Pavlak
