We wanted to keep the membership up to date with our current membership drive. Yes, we know there is a pandemic going on. We know these are trying times. But we are an extended family that cares about each other. So, I am asking all of you to call and make a buddy check with someone you know within the fraternity. It doesn't even have to be a member of our lodge! If you are a member of one you are a member of all lodges. If you have not seen someone in some time or not seen them post on Facebook (if you are on Facebook) for some time check in on them.
This year's membership quota for this 2020-2021 year is 55 new members. We are well behind our previous year's new member rate at this point in the year. We would hate to see us not make the quota for this year. So, do you know of a worthy friend, family member, or maybe someone you meet at a local restaurant or bar that might make a wonderful Moose member? So far this year, we have signed up "7" new members since the last May. We only have five months to sign up 48 more members. We really need your help.

Remember they do not have to sign up the first time they come to the lodge. Why not bring them in for breakfast some week in the future and show them around! We are serving breakfast each Sunday now!
With that plug for our lodge breakfasts, we know many are staying away right now. We get it! We know your family's safety is paramount to you! But, when you don't come in and frequent the lodge, the money we have to pay employees, pay the electric bills, and purchase food and drinks for the members dries up. We need your help to stay vibrant and supporting of our communities. I didn't want to sound so dire! But our situation is not unique. It is happening to all lodges all across the United States. To everyone that reads this, thank you for all you do to support this lodge and our community. You always make us proud to call you members/friends/family!
