Thank you all for your great support the past few months. At the Semi-annual Conference in Norfolk The Virginia Moose Association recognized our Lodge several times for all of our accomplishments this past year.
It is getting close to Election time now, Jr. Past Governor Larry Rothgeb is chairman of the nominating committee. There will be several openings on the Board of Directors, you must have one year prior Board experience to run for Governor, but there are other positions to consider running for (Trustee, Treasurer, Prelate or Jr. Governor). The election is in April and the new officers term starts on May 1st.
There is now a suggestion box near the front entrance to the Lodge. Please feel free to write down your suggestions so the House Committee and Board of Directors can consider them at the meetings. Speaking of meetings, The last two meetings we have only had one or two members attend. The General meetings are the 2nd and 4th Monday of each month at 8:00 pm. Please put it on your calendar and come on out to help us discuss and vote on issues. People are talking about holding Dart Tournaments at the Lodge and sponsoring other local charities, but we need members to show up and vote on these types of things to get them implemented.
The New Market Entertainment Membership Drive ends after the Super Bowl, your friends have one more week to take advantage of it. Also, please remember to show your Membership ID when you enter the Lodge, be respectful of your fellow members, and swearing is not permitted in the Social Quarters.
