Well, it sure has been a busy couple of months. Starting off with Thanksgiving, we were able to deliver 21 food baskets to the needy in East Orange County, because of the support of our members and a very nice donation of Non-Perishable food from the Sunrise Elementary School.
Next, on to the busy month of December!! We kicked it off with our "3rd Annual Meals from the Heart Event", put on by Renee and the Moose Rider volunteers. They prepared, assembled, and delivered, 74 hot meals to our community. This event was followed by the Annual "Children's Breakfast w/Santa". As always, Heidi did a FANTASTIC job coordinating everything. Along with all her elves, they created a "Winter Wonderland" and served a delicious breakfast for all to enjoy. This year we had 80 children in attendance to visit with Santa and Mrs. Claus! It is events like these that represent what the Moose Fraternity is all about. Thank you Heidi and Renee.
On to 2017. With a new year, we are faced with new challenges and one of our biggest now is membership. We are 30 members down from this time last year. Along with signing new members up, we need to work on retention. I will be posting a list each month of the expired members, if you know someone on the list, please help by giving them a call.
It is that time of year again to start thinking about the upcoming officer elections. In the next couple of months, both the Lodge and the W.O.T.M will be having elections. Information will be posted shortly. Please give it some consideration, for your voice is heard more in the meetings than it is around the social quarters.
