I want to personally thank those who have helped with lunches and Monday Night Dinners: Ladine Brick, Larry Lewis, Tyra Berning, Donna Schanks, Bob Brick, Paul Pankewicz, Al Wanek; Jeff See, Stephanie Wanek, The Bricks, Tim Coppe, Tammy Coppe, and to anyone I have missed I do apologize, but please know-thank you!  And to Gary Woods, for his wings at the Cross Town Classic Party - I am having a hard time deciding which is better, the wings or his homemade blue cheese dressing.  Can’t wait for fall to try them again!

As the summer winds down a huge thank you to those who have either chaired or volunteered their time to help make our summer events a success!  I am told I have limited space to name each and everyone of you, but you know who you are and THANK YOU!

A special thank you to Chris Bell, for assisting the board with the day to day operations of the lodge, as we go through administration challenges and changes.

We have several upcoming events, a few open to the public, please help spread the word!  Evenings filled with great food, good music, and awesome people!  Please visit our website, Facebook page or the Lodge Bulletin Board for details!  Don’t forget, if you would like to receive weekly eblasts  of upcoming events, just drop your name and email address in the LOOM mailbox that is located under the bulletin board in the social quarters.  Brother Provo would be happy to add you to the list.  THANKS BOB - for your time in making sure our members stay informed!

Our Moose Lodge Gets A New Character

We recently accepted a new addition to our Lodge thanks to the generous donation and kind thoughts of members, Heather and Evan Nelson.  This donation comes with a warm meaningful story.

While they were visiting Northern Wisconsin, they attended an outdoor fest that included a local chain saw artist, auctioning off his sculptured animals.  One of his quality pieces being auctioned was a head sculpture of a Moose.  As the auctioneer worked the bidding over $200.00, he accidently knocked the sculpture off the stand and broke the antler ears in half.  This stunned not only the artist and the crowd, but also negated all bids on the damaged Moose.  The sculpture, in everyone’s opinion was now useless and not wanted.

Until our Moose member Evan Nelson stepped forward and said he would pay $200.00 for the Moose, “as is”.  The artist, without hesitation or questioning said “SOLD”.  The Nelson’s took the injured Moose home to Illinois to cure the Moose’s antlers with a little wood artistry and varnish.  Heather gave it a little more TLC by engraving “Lodge 2491” into the antlers.  To the surprise of our members, they gifted the sculptured Moose to the Lodge during our annual Car Show.

When the Nelson’s told the story of how the Moose got damaged and they instantly purchased it with the thought of saving this Moose and giving it a good home, they were asked why they would?  They’re comments were “Because it's similar to what the Moose organization does, rescues rejected troubled kids and finds them a good home”.

So next time you’re at the Lodge, be sure pat our new mascot for luck, located inside the front entrance of the Lodge, and hopefully you’ll run into Evan and Heather to tell them thanks for their pride and fraternalism for Mooseheart.
