As the year tapers down and the holidays ease towards us, all we can say is another year has gone by quickly. Spring sprung, Summer has come and gone, fall is here, winter around the corner and I have just got comfortable with writing the year 2013. This year is going fast.
This year has been a challenge with torrential rains,. We took it on the chin and made it with minimal side effects. The Marlboro Moose building stood up and survived through all this. Enough about the weather and now a little note to thank all the members that gave time volunteering and other resources to make the Marlboro Moose Lodge a pleasant and comfortable place to entertain and unwind with friends and family. We strive to make your lodge a place you can enjoy some leisure time.
Now is the time to talk about Membership, Voluntarism, and being Active in our Lodge. MEMBERSHIP IS THE BACKBONE OF THIS ORGANIZATION!!! That means current members must actively recruit qualified members to be a part of your lodge. VOLUNTEERISM IS IMPERATIVE TO THE SUCCESS OF THE MOOSE ORGANIZATION!!! This means giving of your time and skills for the betterment of your Lodge. BEING ACTIVE IN YOUR LODGE. That is the combination of Membership and Volunteering for the good of the Lodge. We need to do both to make our Moose Lodge successful and prosperous. To put it simple come and enjoy your Lodge, Social Quarters, and help maintain the integrity of this organization by signing new members and volunteering
Financially our Lodge can use your support. We know times are hard and money is short. If you are going to socialize, why not do it at the least expensive and safest place in town. We strive to keep the prices reasonable and below the other local establishments. The only way we can keep these low prices is if the membership come to the Social Quarters for entertainment and food, promote the use of our Banquet Hall. You can also support your lodge financially by supporting Lodge Events and Fund Raisers (i.e.; Crab Feasts, Breakfast, Bull and Oysters Roasts, etc.) or Playing Pool, Card Games (including the Queen of Hearts). Probably the best support our members can accomplish is to PROMOTE the use of our Banquet Hall for Events (for weddings, parties, dances, auctions, etc.) and recommend events or ideas you would like to enjoy attending.
Again, Thank you for your continued support and we look forward to see you for the rest of 2013 and as we head into 2014.
Fraternally, Rory M. Lohman, Administrator
