FROM THE GOVERNOR
============================================================
Holiday Greetings to you all!!

It’s that time of the year again to spend time with friends and loved ones, remembering fond times, giving thanks for family and friends and reflecting on all that you did this year.

It’s also a time of giving. Have you thought of your Lodge and what you could give at this time of year? If you have not had a chance to donate to the Rebuild and Repair fund yet, now would be a good time to do so. We are making many upgrades and every bit helps.

Another way of helping is to volunteer your time and talents to the Lodge. A helping hand is always welcome.

I think the best gift to the Lodge is to sign up a new member or re-sign a former member who might be missing all the fun activities. If you know someone who would make a good member or know someone whose membership expired, please sign them up.

Don’t forget to check your Moose Messenger or the web site for upcoming events.

Fraternally yours,
Kent Wilcox, Governor
