Hello Mooses!
    Can’t believe this is the last newsletter this year!  Time sure
has flown by...and now we’re staring straight into the holidays.
    Lots of great stuff coming up at the lodge…
    The Women of the Moose are having their annual Purse
Auction November 3.  All sorts of purses, with all sorts of prizes in
them.  The proceeds go to local children’s charities too!  Also
serving Prime Rib that night.
    Kathy’s doing the Veteran’s Day Dinner & Dance again on
November 11th.  Chicken Fried Steak Dinner is free to veterans,
and $10 for everyone else.  There will also be a very impressive
Flag Ceremony, lots of raffles, and dancing!  Music provided by
Alvin Jones & Crystal Pool Revival.
    Tami Axon is heading up the Holiday Bazaar again this year.  
This happens on Sunday, November 19.  Lots of vendors, and I’ll
be cooking burgers and such for lunch.
    Anyone with kitchen experience...we have the 1st & 3rd
Tuesdays open if you’d like to volunteer in the kitchen.  Let me
know if you’re interested.
    The 50/50 Roof Rafffle was a huge success.  The lodge’s half
was $5740.  This amount added to our existing roof fund, brings
our total to about $15,000.  We had two preliminary bids, and this
amount puts us about halfway to the lowest bid.  When we get a
little closer, we’ll get more serious about quotes.  Thanks to all
who have donated, bought tickets, and sold tickets.  A special
thanks to Sandy Provolt who chaired the Roof Raffle, and made
it such a success.  We’re still accepting donations to the roof
fund, and we’ll be having some fundraisers in the future as well.
    Our Dessert Auction went well.  We made $1632 to help with
the property taxes!  Lots of fun, and lots of great desserts.  A
round of applause to all who donated and bought desserts...and
a big thanks to our Auctioneer Ed Reeves.
    While I’m thanking people...all the volunteers who helped with
the Prime Rib dinner in October did an exceptional job!  I know
they were somewhat overwhelmed with the amount of people,
but they got it done.  This was the largest Prime at the Moose
that I can remember.

       See you here!
