Hey Folks, the Chapter will be having another Winter Warmth
Campaign, beginning Aug 7th and running through the month
of Oct. So as you are clearing out your coats and blankets
for the summer – think about helping a family or a child stay
warm this winter.

I just want to take this opportunity to inform you that this will be my last newsletter for the Lodge. Tom & I have been members of this lodge for 25 1/2 years and it has been a roller coaster ride over the years. We have seen this place flourish and we have seen days that we wondered if the doors would be open. We are so grateful for the things that we have gotten to experience over the years and the friendships that we have made. I am sorry that Tom did not get to make it to see his dream come true which was to be the Department President in August of this year, he would have been a good one & I am so proud of him. I know that Tom was proud of all of the accomplishments that I have made over the years, as Star Recorder, Academy Friendship & College of Regent. I have to say until I visited the Mooseheart campus back in 1996, I had no idea what and why we were doing all of this. Seeing all of those kids faces and the beautiful campus where they live put this all in perspective. However, now that Tom has passed away my life has changed and it is time for me to move on and begin a new life.Therefore, at the end of July Tom and I & Mousse will be moving to Tampa, Florida to begin a life with Tom’s family. So with that said, I wish you all the very best and May God Bless each and every one of you, this is NOT Good-bye, this is until we meet again, wherever that maybe.

September 1st marks two years since I became your Administrator. I would like to thank everyone for supporting our Lodge and making us financially solvent once again. It’s a great thing to see us all working together in order to get things done. Our celebrations and parties are awesome. But that’s not the reason our Lodge exists. In the coming months our Lodge needs to concentrate on doing community service. If we do this, our Lodge will become more visible in our community and our membership will increase. I look forward to working with all of you in this area..
