From the Governor . . .

2015 is coming to an end soon.  We will be having a few traditional events here at the Lodge from the Turkey Drop and Toy Drive to the Moose Legion Chili Cook-Off and Soup Cook-Offs.  Look for details in the newsletter or around the lodge as the dates get closer.

On Saturday, November 14th Burning Bridges will be here at 8PM and will be open to the public.    Legion Moose will be hosting a Karaoke contest in November and  the Lodge will be open at 5pm on Thanksgiving to root the Bears on to a hopeful victory!  Hope you can come out and enjoy these events too!

Thank you to Ladine for all her efforts in not only creating the weekly lunch menu, but shopping and preparing it as well.  If anyone is available to volunteer their time to make lunch or help work the kitchen, please let me know I would love to hear from you.

As you may have noticed, the wall in the back has been removed and we have opened up the space to offer more room for our members to enjoy entertainment and events here at the lodge.  Thanks Tom McSorley and Jim Partyka for making it happen.

Don’t forget to stop by the lodge on Monday evenings for Family Dinner Night!  And to our Veteran’s stop by on November 11th and have a drink on the Lodge -  THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU HAVE DONE!

Thank you to all Co-Workers and Board Members who volunteer and donate your time. All your support is VERY much appreciated!

I hope everyone has enjoyed the events these past few months.  Oktoberfest, Bunco for Breast Cancer, Chili Dump, Christmas in October, Pumpkin decorating contest.  I want to thank the Oktoberfest crew including the cooks, servers, planner decorators and everyone who helped make this a great event!

A special thank you to Nancy Brenczewski and her team for hosting the Bunco for Breast Cancer.  You all out did yourselves this year.  What a wonderful time and for such a great cause.   Thank you to all who came out to support this event.

The entire month of November, we will be having our Annual Mitten Drive.  Donations will be collected at the Lodge.  Please see the bulletin board for items needed this year.  Thank you for your support.

Also, beginning in November the WOTM will be selling raffles to the annual Lottery Tree.  Buy your chances early and often to increase your chances of winning a tree filled with lottery tickets!  The drawing will take place at the Lodge Christmas Dinner  on Saturday, December 12th.

There is a lot happening in the next few months, please visit the Lodge to check out these events.  You can also visit the website and Facebook  or even call the lodge to find out.  As most of us know, there are always events being added to the calendar.   Hope to see you!

The WOTM is currently in need of a Secretary/Treasurer for the remainder of the year.  If anyone is interested or would like information about this position, please contact me.

Remember our WOTM meetings are the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays of the month.  Please come out and join your fellow

May you all have safe and enjoyable Holiday Season!
