Marietta Moose Lodge #1823 - "The friendliest place in town"
WOTM-Women of the Moose
 
 
Hello Co-Workers,


     Spring is approaching quickly and we’re sure everyone is ready to get out of the house and enjoy warmer, sunnier days and say goodbye to winter and all the wind, snow, and RAIN it has brought.  River Trail clean-up will begin again in April.  Watch for emails and times to help keep the trail neat and tidy during the summer months.

     Our officers and a few co-workers recently attended the Ohio State Moose Association Mid-Year Conference in Independence, Ohio and gained some great insight from our Official Visitor, Grand Chancellor, Barbara McPherson.  Her talks included the importance of supporting Mooseheart and Moosehaven, our twin cities.  She also spoke about One Moose and placed emphasis on building our membership.  More information will be presented after the International Convention in Milwaukee, WI.  
Please plan to attend a Chapter meeting to hear more details.  There were 42 ladies from around the state who received their Academy of Friendship Degree including our own Sr. Regent Eva Hinzman.    Kris Goodman also received Co-Worker of the Year for our chapter.

     What is Academy of Friendship Degree?  Any co-worker that sponsors five or more new or re-enrolled members into the Chapter between May 1st and April 30th is eligible for the degree.  The chapter must also be presented with the Award of Achievement in order to receive this degree.   Another way to achieve the degree is by serving as a Chapter Development Committee Chairperson and sponsor two or more new or re-enrolled members into the Chapter between May 1st and April 30th and the chapter receives the Award of Achievement.  If you are interested in the degree, please contact any officer for more details. 

     Election of new officers is drawing near. If you are interested in a position, please fill out a ballot before March 1st.  Ballot sheets are located next to the WOTM box at the back entrance of the Social Quarters.  The slate of officer nominees will be read at the first meeting on March 10, 2020 and the election of officers will take place on March 24, 2020.  Please plan to attend this meeting so that you may vote.  Watch for details through emails or postings in the social quarters. You must have your membership card with you at the election meeting.

     It has been a great and rewarding year for our current Board of Officers and committees, which will end on April 30th and the newly elected officers will begin their year on May 1st.  If you are interested in holding an office for the Board of Officers or to be a chairperson, please contact one of the current officers for more information. 

     Please consider volunteering the nights that WOTM serve dinner at the Lodge by helping in the kitchen or selling 50/50 tickets. Simply talk to an officer or email us at wotmchapter1363@gmail.com.  We will connect you with the right people to get you involved in whatever capacity you desire.

     If you still need to do your orientation now is a great time to come in and learn what WOTM and the fraternal order is all about.  The orientation takes about 30 minutes and is held on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 6:00 PM.  It is necessary to attend an orientation session in order to participate in any of the social quarter drawings.

     Please consider attending the WOTM meetings held on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month at 7:00 PM in the Buckeye room. The meetings are your opportunity to share your ideas and opinions of how to make our chapter what you want it to be!  If you aren’t on our email list, please consider joining to keep informed of the latest news.

     Have you ever considered paying your dues online?  It takes less time to receive your dues card than writing a check to the chapter and the chapter in return writing a check to Moose International.  We know some ladies do not have access to a computer. You can even write the check to Moose International and this will also take less time in receiving your dues card.

THANKS, AND HAVE A GREAT SPRING SEASON!!
