Winter is dragging on, but don't worry Spring is right around the corner. March 7th and 8th the lodge is going to attend the State Bowling Tournament in Beloit. I would just like to wish all the members that are attending "Good Luck" I believe in the next two years we'll be hosting this event in Racine.
On March 12th -15th some of our Lodge Officers are going to attend the Wisconsin Moose Association convention in Wausau WI. The convention teaches the officer's about everyday needs for the Lodge. There are seminars and workshops that talk about retention, new applications, insurance needs and daily lodge operations. Our Lodge is among 32 other Lodges that try to achieve the "Premiure Lodge Award." It is based on a point system that the Lodge can earn throughout the fiscal year. The end of the Fiscal year is fast approaching and ends April 30th. You as members can help the Lodge in reaching our goals for applications and sponsor a new member into this great fraternity. If the Lodge receives this award it could mean the Lodge would receive either a 10% or 20% discount per member that we have to pay the Wisconsin Moose Association this year. Other criteria is needed but it is in the clerical area that the office gives to Moose International. Please help your Lodge become the best it can be.
On April 5th the Lodge will have its fabulous Easter Brunch. The time is from 10am to 1pm and the cost is $15.00 Adults, $13.00 for Seniors, $8.00 for Children 50-10yrs old, 4yrs and younger is free.
In closing as a reminder if you have a High School Junior in your life sign him or her up for the R. Robert Dale Scholarship. The requirements are posted in the hall as you come into the Lodge. The student must be graduating in the Class of 2016. Please fill out the application and have it postmarked by June 30th 2015. Winners will be randomly drawn and notified by November 13th 2015 for $1000.00. Also I would like to mention if your interested in becoming a Lodge Officer for the next fiscal year please fill out the form available in the Social Quarters. Positions on the board are Trustees, Treasurer, Jr. Governor, and Prelate. The next Nominating Committee Meeting for current officers and past governors is on March 3rd at 6:30pm.
