Marietta Moose Lodge #1823 - "The friendliest place in town"
Administrator's Corner


ELECTION TIME, GOLF LEAGUE, AND OTHER BITS…

     As the days are getting incrementally longer and the temperature tries to climb, the Lodge is a flurry on activity!  Soon we will be seeing more Brothers and Co-Workers on the back patio sharing stories and enjoying the fellowship that makes our Fraternity so special!  The golf course and the river will be other popular gathering places.  The Lodge will be out and about to show our Community value and our commitment to be a good, welcoming neighbor!

     The annual golf league organizational meeting will be held on Saturday March 21st at 2 PM in the Buckeye Room.  We will be discussing the location, rules, and format so if you want to join the league, we ask that you come and give your input.

     We are also accepting nominations for Lodge officer positions as of this printing.  The cut off to run is March 22, 2020.  Positions that are open to election are Governor, Jr. Governor, Prelate, Treasurer, 2yr. Trustee and 3yr. Trustee.  If you want to take a more active role in your Lodge, please consider running for an office.  It is a commitment for sure, but it is not as overwhelming as you may think!

     Our Lodge has a fantastic chance to show a gain in membership for the fourth year in a row!  We are currently in the plus, but every new member adds to our strength.  Please invite your friends, co-workers, family members, and neighbors to join our ranks.

     I would also ask that anyone interested in helping at the Lodge in a variety of projects or in the kitchen please sign the “Volunteer Sign Up” sheet!  Just ask a server for the sheet. We ask for an email or cell number for us to reach out to you when we need to.  There is no obligation, just looking to bolster our volunteer roster.

     Finally, there will be information forthcoming in the next few months about a consolidated membership model being voted on at the upcoming International and State Conventions.  If you read anything about this issue and you have questions, please feel free to ask me and I will try to answer all that I can!


Fraternally,

Andrew

"A word about the 9 o’clock ceremony"
     At nine o’clock each Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, all that are gathered in our Lodge home are asked to participate in a very special ritual that is at the heart of our Fraternity.  All are asked to rise and join in the recital of a prayer blessing Moose heart and the children that it protects.  At the conclusion, a collection is taken up to be contributed to the Mooseheart and Moosehaven Endowment Fund.  If you have yet to witness a ceremony we would encourage you to do so.  It is the essence of what our Fraternity is and will continue to be, going forward.

     Contributing to the Endowment Fund collection is voluntary, and anything that is contributed is appreciated.  There is a small white board hanging outside the Buckeye Room with the total dollars raised.

       Member Retention is key to the success of our Lodge! 
     Please be sure that your membership card is up to date, and if you do receive a dues reminder please give it your prompt attention!
