Hello all!
January and February have proved to be a challenge with these cold temperatures. Our group got together January 24th at SS Peter & Paul Church and made what felt like a bazillion gobs for the gob fest January 31st at the Galleria! We raised nearly $2,300!! Unbelievable!!! This is our 4th year at gob fest. We were setting up and had people asking to buy the gobs by the dozen. They said they were there last year and knew ours were good! How great is that??!! What a complement to our crew! We always have such a great time up there. I think our table has the most energy. We’ve made some friends over the past few years that it’s fun to see and compete with! We look forward to next year!

We hosted a Valentine’s Dance February 14th with the amazing Nixon Pit Crew entertaining us. We had a great showing especially considering that we were in the middle of a blizzard and some serious white out conditions. Thank you so much to all who showed up. It was a lot of fun with a great crowd!

March 14th is the Pittsburgh Penguins bus trip. The bus leaves the Moose at 9 am. If you’re signed up, don’t be late. Better yet, come early and have breakfast. The WOTM are hosting a breakfast that day starting at 7AM for $6 a person. If you haven’t had breakfast at the Moose you are missing out!

On April 20th we are hosting a Studio PM painting event. It is a wine and cheese theme. Cost is $40 a person. You must be signed up and paid prior to April 15th. The ladies from Studio PM bring everything you need to paint a canvas portrait. You don’t have to be a talented artist to participate. I’ve gone to two of their painting events and had an awesome time. Your $40 includes everything you need to create your artwork. It also includes the wine, cheese and refreshments. It’s going to be a really fun time.
May 9th is the Bark for Life at the Windber Park. More details to follow in the next newsletter
Thank you so much for your continued support of our relay team.

God Bless,

Tom Beard Memorial Scholarship – 3rd Annual Pool Tournament

Mark your calendars - The 3rd Annual Tom Beard Memorial Scholarship Pool Tournament will be held on Saturday April 11!

Tom Beard was an active member of the Windber Moose, Moose Legion and MooseRiders; among many other community associations. Community Service was very important to Tom. He lived his life and dedicated his time toward helping others.

The memorial scholarship was started in 2012 to preserve his spirit of giving and is awarded to local high school seniors who, too, have a proven commitment to community service. Each year, a deserving high school senior that shows exemplary acts of community service will be awarded this scholarship.

In its first 3 years, the Tom Beard Memorial Scholarship provided $12,000.00 in scholarship monies to 8 deserving seniors. Tom is missed by so many and this is a great way to keep his memory and work alive in all of us. Your support of the Tom Beard Memorial Scholarship is greatly appreciated.

Watch for more details on the lodge board.
