Maplewood Lodge... So much fun in one building…
Today’s Amazing Fact…
At points in the 1990s, 50% of all CDs being produced worldwide were for AOL.
You can visit half of the world's 10 largest lakes by visiting a single country: Canada. The five lakes are Great Bear, Great Slave, Erie, Huron, and Superior.
A little help…
A little help…
As of 3/14, the Lodge membership was at 364. We need to be at 384 Lodge members (men) on the rolls by the end of April 30th to get to the +1 on the year. Hitting this goal means the Lodge qualifiers for some additional Moose Discounts.
It would be a shame to have gotten this close and missed out on the discounts that come with getting the Premier Lodge Award. We can do this if everyone helps.
I don’t want to beg, but please, please, please do what you can. 17 is the magic number.
Tim Slabik, Governor 2015-2016
Don’t forget, in addition to the discounts, the State Association will donate 2 sets of bean bag boards to the Lodge. A value of approximately $250.00
Sponsoring members also gets your name in to the Maplewood Lodge drawing for one year’s free dues.
AND, the State Association puts your name into a drawing for one of 4 prizes: 1st and 2nd get a 2 night hotel stay in Albert Lea for the Annual Convention held in September 2016 (may opt to receive $100.00 cash – winner is non-transferable), 3rd and 4th place winners get 1 ticket each for the Saturday night banquet at the Annual Convention.
See the Lodge calendar page for all of the fun/.

PLANNED GIVING FOR MAPLEWOOD LODGE
As responsible adults we need to plan for the future; none of us will be around forever. Have you thought about what will happen to your stuff when you’re called to your final reward? A charitable bequest is one of the easiest ways you can leave a lasting impact on the Maplewood Lodge.
If you wish to remember the Lodge as a beneficiary on your life insurance, annuity, or in your will, you may use the following language:
“I give, devise, and bequeath to the Maplewood Moose Lodge #963 of Maplewood, MN, Tax ID #8115130 or its successor organization, all (or state the fraction, or percentage) of the rest, residue, and remainder of my estate, both real and personal.” OR “I give, devise and bequeath $_____ to the Maplewood Moose Lodge #963 of Maplewood, MN, Tax ID #8115130 or its successor organization”.
As always, consult with your financial advisor or attorney on these matters.
