Mission Statement
The mission of our Organization is to strive for excellence in four areas:
1. A fraternal program and community service within our Lodge and Chapter system;
2. To provide a family environ-ment and education for chil-dren in need and in residence at Mooseheart, Illinois;
3. To provide for the needs of senior members at Moose-haven, Florida; and
4. To promote membership growth and financially strength-en our fraternity.
Guess what? It’s snowing again! It seems to me that it just hasn’t stopped since Christmas. No disrespect to all you ski-ers, but enough already! Well, the end of the Moose year is fast approaching and we are a little behind on our new mem-ber goal and our retention has seemed to have slipped. Let’s get back to the grindstone and see if we can get some of those members back that may have wandered off. Is there some-thing you all would like to see that we are not currently doing? Please, by all means, drop me a note in the Governor’s box and I will bring it to the next officers meeting. I take all inquir-ies and suggestions very seriously. Each and every one of you is very important to me. Let’s get the push on and retain our status as the best lodge in the Northeast and let’s never forget to always be the friendliest place in town! It’s so easy to do! Just lean over and say hello to someone you’ve never met before!
Please continue to support our weekly Bingo night at the Sea-coast Bingo Hall. It is our lifeblood. This weekly evening, manned by an amazing group of volunteers is how we are able to support all the great causes that we support. I promise you, you will have a lot of fun! Look for the two coupons for $5.00 off a package in this bulletin!

From The Administrator:
A few things have come up that I wanted you all to know.
First thing is we will no longer be accepting checks in the Social Quarters for cash. We have had a
greater influx of bounced checks and this is to protect you as well as us. We will accept checks for
dues and other event payments.
Second thing is that we are trying to go as green as we possibly can. The folks with e-mail addresses
have already seen that they get their newsletters and web blasts at a much more timely
If you have an e-mail address or have changed your address please e-mail it to us at
lodge443@mooseunits.org. This address can also be used for mailing address and phone number
changes too.
The last thing I’d like to mention is that we are still running Bingo at the Seacoast Bingo Hall in
Somersworth. As you all know we do a lot of great things in our community, but we can’t do it
without bingo money. It takes quite a few people to run the games and sell tickets and our volunteers
are dwindling and we are looking for more help. You don’t need to be there every week, but
if you could make it 13 out of each 26 weeks it will help us out and will get you invited to a meal
at a local restaurant. This has always been a good time and you will get to meet a lot of great
Thank You in advance for all the things you will do,
Dolph Toigo, Administrator

would like to eat, we are ask- ing for you to bring a

From the Senior Regent
THINK SPRING! Winter is finally starting to come to a close and I don’t know about you, but I
am ready for warm weather, BBQ, and all sorts of fun events at the lodge.
We have some great breakfast fundraisers coming up, March breakfast will be for the March of
Dimes and April’s breakfast will be for the American Diabetes Association. Come on down and
have a delicious breakfast while supporting these great causes.
As always the continued success of our Chapter and Lodge revolve around introducing new
members to our organization and encouraging ALL our members to attend meetings, learn about
our fraternity, and volunteer their time and most importantly to have fun.
We have a lot of exciting events coming up; please continue to check the information board in the
social quarters to keep up with all the events going on.
Fraternally Yours,
Abby Field

An Open Letter to They...
I have been a member of this lodge for several
years now and I have heard a lot about you.
Whenever I hear anything about the paper towels
being empty or the toilet paper, I am always
told it is you “They” that does that. Even when
there is an errant paper towel on the floor, or a
piece of popcorn or coaster that has fallen off
the bar, I am always told, “hey – don’t worry
about that - “They” will get it” I’ve also heard
that when the snow needs to be shoveled or a
chair in the social quarters needs to be fixed,
that it is you too! Ole reliable. They. Well, I for
one appreciate you They. And I think it’s high
time you reveal yourself so that we can all thank
you. For you (They) do a lot of things around this
place to make it better and I for one want to
personally thank you for all that you do.
Sincerely—Anonymous - MID # 4231.375
