Welcome to NC spring where we see snow and pollen on the ground in the same day. Just part of the wonderful life in the best part of the southeast coast of the Great United States of America. Another great feature of this area is the Wilmington Moose Lodge.
One of fall backs is spring cleaning, I know most of you have heard of this thing, how many of you have done some it.
Well if you are reading ahead !!!you are right I am again looking for some help from the Membership.
With the approval of the membership at the Special meeting on March 22, 2017, to apply to the General Governor's office at Moose International for permission to finance the lodge in the amount of $70,000.00. there are several projects that can be performed by the membership to save money. If you can possible use a paint brush or roller, swing a hammer, use a scrub brush. Help carry objects to a cleaning station (out back) or operate a pressure washer, or just handing material to someone who can work off a ladder or scaffolding. We can use your help, if you know someone who has a backhoe that would be willing to volunteer some time or just offer the loan of the backhoe (we have members that are qualified operators) this would be a tremendous help on the front and back drainage needs. I am going to work with the Legion Chairman; (Bill Carder) and Governor; (Nick Benson) to send out e-mails as to when we schedule these events and what we will be doing and the type of help needed.
So much for my pleas. My goal is still to make this lodge the friendliest place in town, this happens by you coming out and visiting old friends or offering membership to new ones.
I also would like to mention that we are in line for the Premier Lodge Award for the first time in a long time! The one goal is to maintain the level of membership set by Moose International for Lodge 343, which is Plus 1; we had 164 last year so this year's goal is 165. Today we are at 172 but we do have about a dozen who are expiring on April 1st. We need their renewals to maintain our goal level.
By the way, don't forget our Thursday lunches. They continue to be very popular. Looking forward to see you at the Lodge.
God Bless Mooseheart and Moosehaven ... and YOU.
