Hello everyone,

Well, we have another relay year in the books. We raised a total of $10,216.12! It was another good year. Thank you to everyone that contributed. It most definitely takes a village. Carol and I announced last newsletter that this was our last year as team captains. Sadly, no one has shown interest in taking over the team. It’s not too late! If you’ve thought about it just come talk to us. We are still planning on being team members. We won’t leave you hanging! The gob festival alone makes it worth sticking around!!
I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone that has participated in the Windber Moose Relay for Life team events over the past 6 years that Carol and I have been team captains. I look back and have so many fond memories. We’ve had a blast with so many good people. I’ve made new friends and have loved every minute of it. We had 10-hour gob baking marathons. We battled a snow storm to dance with our sweethearts on Valentine’s Day! We wore ugly sweaters, not once but 3 times!! We cheered on the Pittsburgh Penguins and put our cowboy hats on for the hoe down! We painted fine art comparable to Picasso! This is just to name a few. So I say thank you for the great times! I look forward to many many more!!
People say that one person can’t change the world. I don’t agree with that. I believe that one person can change their corner of the world. Hopefully those corners come together to make a better world for all of us. A world without cancer.

God Bless,
Susan Shaffer

Sponsor Recognition

Congratulations to brothers, Rick Burgess, Michael Ashbrook, Jerry Simmers, Jonathan Beskid, Gus Palmar, Chuck Sturtz and David Waltimire. These brothers sponsored new members during July and August. They got a drink a day for being the “Bull Moose” until the next member sponsored another new lodge member. Increasing our numbers is one of your obligations of membership.
These sponsors added nine new members to the lodge’s membership roll.
