Legion News by Chairman Bill Carder
The dog days of summer are upon us and not a whole lot of activities are planned by the Legion for July. Enjoy your summer and get ready for the explosion of Legion sponsored activities for the fall.
This is a good time to recruit your LOOM friends to join the Legion and become more active in Lodge activities.
The roof repairs have begun, after which, extensive repairs to the building will commence. Please sign up to help with these endeavors. Just a few hours a week will make a tremendous difference.
Saturday, July 1st is our monthly meeting. We will start with biscuits served at 8:00 am and the meeting at 9:00 am.
Our "Second Saturday" steak dinner has been moved to July 22nd at 6:00 pm due to scheduling conflicts (all good ones!). Radio Fyer will provide the entertainment.
The Legion Celebration in Wilson will be held Saturday and Sunday, July 15 & 16. Legionnaires are strongly encouraged to attend.
Yours Fraternally, Bill Carder, Chairman

For those of you 343 members who are not Legionaries I would like you to consider joining us in the Higher Degree of Service. You need to have been a Lodge member for 6 months or have sponsored at least one new member into the Lodge. The dues are $35.

July is starting off with a bang with the National Moose Convention in Tampa Fl.
Our Independence Day celebration on July 2, starting at 12:00, is a bigger than ever event, with a full schedule of activities for both the kids, the kids at heart, and those of us with longer healing times. (Thank you Jason Durgala for taking charge of this event). If you come to this event, stop by and see Jason to see if there is anything you can do to help to make this a "Realllly Big Show". (How many of you remember where that line comes from)? Come out and share the joys of Moose and Chapter membership. Bring a friend to show what Moose and Chapter membership is about.
Update on the building repairs: The roofing crew has been working between the rain days and the front flashing is complete. This endeavor has caused some additional leaks because they could not always get the foot placement where they would normally be. They are now making sure the screws in the metal are not loose and are resealing the screw heads, the roof penetrations around the kitchen hood, plumbing vent lines, and looking for rust holes. Next job is to seal the rear walls where the walls meet the roof panels. The spray coating will then be applied. That is followed by the ground work in the front and rear of the building wall base to direct drainage in to the collection piping system and prevent seepage under the walls. This will require removal of layers of earth build-up and installation of additional drainage pipe, gravel, and reseeding the grass (so Mr. PBR can continue to mow)
At this point, we will schedule a meeting for all interested parties to work a plan for the bingo hall renovations. Please attend to see if there are areas you may be able to help with. (Remember there were no funds requested for labor other than the roof. All other labor is to come from volunteer members.
After that, it is on to the kitchen renovations. Then we will begin the addition of the RV and Camper sites.
PS: Plug November 4th into your calendar for the Lodge Annual Oyster Roast.
God Bless Mooseheart, Moosehaven and God Bless you. - Bill.
