Hello Mooses!
       Summer is coming to a close.  Hope y’all got out and
enjoyed the weather.  It’s been pretty nice!  Rain’s coming, but
don’t let that get you down.  As the clouds and precipitation
return, so do the events at the lodge!
       Speaking of events...October 6 will be our semi-annual
Dessert Auction.  This helps pay our property taxes, and is a
much needed fund raiser.  Also that night, we’re drawing the
winner of the 50/50 Roof Raffle.  At this time the winning half of
the pot is over $4000.00.  Tickets are still available, and are $5
each.  Prime Rib is back on October 6 as well.  First dinner  
since June.  There have been lots of people asking about it.  Get
here early to make sure you can get in on it.  This will be one
busy Friday!
       A word on the roof fund...since there’s been some
questions.  There are currently two groups of money that make
up our roof fund.  First there’s the Big 50/50 Raffle, which
currently has around $8000 in it right now ($4,000 for the lodge,
$4000 for the winning prize).  There’s also our roof fund that’s
made from donations, fund raisers (like the golf tournament), and
weekly 50/50 drawings.  We’ve got $6,800 in that.  So, when you
add those together, we have over $10,000 collected for our roof
so far, which is about 1/4 to 1/3 of what we need, depending on
which contractor and type of roof we go with.  If anyone ever has
any questions concerning this project, please don’t hesitate to
ask me.  We’re also still gladly accepting donations to the roof
fund.
       Another Friday dinner that makes a come back in October….
Steak Night.  Beginning October 20, I’ll be doing New York Steak
and/or Shrimp dinner every 3rd Friday.
       October 21 is another Shop & Sip.  Come browse the
vendors, and sip your favorite beverage...runs 5:00 - 10:00.
         Kathy is doing another Veteran’s Dinner November 11.  
Alvin Jones & Crystal Pool Revival will be the band.  More on
that in the next newsletter.
       Don’t forget to like our Facebook page
“@cowlitzvalleymoose”.  I post at least 3 times weekly as to what’
s going on here at the lodge.
       Lastly...a big congrats to Tim Nelson for putting on a very
successful Golf Tournament.  10 teams played, and we raised
around $2,800 for the roof fund.  Way to go!  Thanks to all who
participated, volunteered, and donated prizes.  Special thanks to
Rocky Allen for the Fishing trip, and Dave Anderson for the Hood
Canal retreat.  Those two auction items made almost
$500!             See you here!
