Messages from the Johnstown Moose


From the Board of Officers

We would like to congratulate Gary Coons for receiving his 50 year Lifetime Membership Award.
The family picnic is scheduled for Sunday August 19th, please join us. We are also looking to have a Craft Beer Fest September 29th and the Moose Fest on October 21st.
We continue to upgrade the Lodge by renovating the meeting room and banquet hall with the help from the WOTM. We installed a new air purifier with help from Jim Walsh and we are resurfacing and striping all parking areas. Thanks to Steve Manoogian for refinishing the bar and Gary Howard for landscaping.

We want to welcome our new lunch cook, Beth Garvine who is doing a great job.

Please remember that this is a private Lodge and everyone is here to enjoy themselves. We need to be respectful to all, the use of foul language will not be tolerated.

As we continue to our new Moose year, many thanks to all of you for your continued support.

From the Senior Regent

My name is Patricia Jennings, your newly elected Senior Regent. I wanted to say hello and let you know how excited I am to get started planning for this year’s success.

My plans will be to help make the club strive to increase membership, raise money not only to our club but. Also MooseHeart and Moosehaven. TO reach these goals I will be working closely with all Chapter 685 members of our club. To ensure success I am asking all members of the Lodge #1185 to get involved. There are many upcoming activities that members can volunteer to help make our club stronger.. Just ask..

I would love to hear ideas or concerns from anyone that has them. Come to our meetings, get involved and have fun.
