Dover Moose 443 & 557 May/June 2011 Newsletter

posted May 30, 2011, 8:13 AM by Dover Moose   [ updated May 30, 2011, 8:19 AM by Samuel Chase ]

As the Moose year comes to a close I think its time to reflect on all we have accomplished in the past twelve months. Our second annual touch a truck event was once again a huge success. We held our first annual motorcycle poker run to rave reviews. Our two murder mysteries filled the hall to capacity. We sponsored youth baseball, hockey, basketball and cheerleading teams and banquets as well as hosting the Heyliger awards for the second year. We donated over $30,000.00 to more then 25 different organizations and charities. We have seen a continued increase in membership. And we were chosen as the Non-Profit Business of the year for the City of Dover. A pretty good year in anyone’s book. With all of our various events and fundraisers, there has been one common and very important thread, and that is the continued hard work and dedication shown by our members. To me, the true measure of a successful organization like ours isn’t the amount of money raised but rather the number of members who give their time and talent whenever asked. That truly

is where our Lodge excels.

Mission Statement

2. To provide a family environment and education for children in need and in residence at Mooseheart, Illinois;

3. To provide for the needs of senior members at Moosehaven, Florida; and

4. To promote membership growth and financially strengthen our fraternity.

125 Club

As most of you may have heard, I am stepping down from the chairmanship of the 125 club. I would like to take a moment to thank all the 125 members who have supported me over the last couple of years and I would like to add special thanks to my wife Sherry Bishop, Debra Galinsky, Tammy Hussey, Kelly Hubbard and Jim Towle for all they have done to make my job much easier. The 125 party will be held at the Dover Elks on July 9

th from Noon to 6:00 PM. Once again karaoke with Jim Wood will be our entertainment and we will be holding contests in horseshoes, basketball and closest to the pin golf games and many other fun events. We will also be holding our first salad and dessert contest. More information will be available at the Lodge.

Finally, I would like to welcome our new 125 Chairman Chad Alden and his wife Amy. They both have been members for a couple of years and I feel they have a bunch of great ideas to keep the 125-club fun. Please come on down and take a minute to meet Chad and Amy. The next 125 club will begin on August 4


Once again thank you for all of your support. It has been fun.
