Brothers and Coworkers,
Our lodge will be hosting the Pennsylvania Moose Association Youth Awareness Congress at our lodge on November 14th and 15th. We expect at least 60 students and their chaperones to attend. This event gives these teenagers a chance to hone their skills in preparation for giving talks to 4 - 9 year olds in their communities about various social problems. These motivated scholars will compete against each other for a chance to go to the International Congress in Orlando, FL and a chance at a first place win worth $12,000 in scholarship money. Please welcome and encourage these future leaders if you see them in our lodge home.
This issue of the newsletter is being mailed to all our members. I would like to remind you that if you wish all future newsletters mailed you can submit that request and your mailing information to my office, but don’t forget that the newsletters are also available on the websites at the top of every issue, as well as in the social quarters.
Membership info: 1) Don’t wait until the end of the month that your dues expire to renew. It takes Moose International up to two weeks after they receive your payment to get you a new membership card. 2) Lodge members can now sponsor chapter applicants and vice versa. and
3) Further, with the July, 2014 change in sponsorship policy, all individuals over the age of 21 are now considered candidates; therefore the guest policy of two visits before membership is required applies to all individuals, including lady friends of male members and gentlemen friends of female members.
Please remember to update your membership records with Moose Int’l or at the lodge if you have a change of address, name. phone number or email.
