FROM THE GOVERNOR
============================================================
Premier Lodge Award – our # 1 goal this year. We are working very hard to get the Premier Lodge Award. If we get this we get some additional discounts from Moose International as well as the State Association. The biggest challenge is to be plus one in Membership on April 30, 2016. We started the year with 383; as of today we have 365. We can do this, but only with your help.

Our lighting project is under way! It is about 20% complete thanks to Mike Young. Bring your sunglasses because it’s now brighter than ever. Thanks, Mike!!

Motorcycle fundraiser -- SUCCESS!! Dan Fischer, Elizabeth Spittle, Ron Suiter and Tom Helget did a fantastic job. Look for details later in the newsletter.

Last newsletter I challenged each of you to catch someone doing good. All you have to do is step up and do something at the Lodge like our first winners Ron Suiter and Lynn Kollos. Ron was caught “changing kegs” and Lynn was caught “picking up after the band”. Each of them received a free dinner. Look for details on this later in the newsletter.

Moose International announces Moose Rewards program. Get points for paying your membership dues, sponsoring your first member, sponsoring a member, being an officer and more. Brochures are available in the Social Quarters or online at www.mooseintl.org.

Don’t forget about all the fun that happens at the Lodge – from horseshoes, darts, cribbage, live music, indoor bocce ball, dancing, Men’s Fashion Show, District and State Horseshoe tournaments, and more. If you haven’t been to the Lodge this week, do yourself a favor; stop in and see the changes.

Fraternally yours,
Tim Slabik, Governor
