Secretary's Message,
If you missed the awards dinner you missed a really good time, we moved the time up so we could accommodate our older members and this worked out good. We were done by 5:30 and next year we will have the same start time of 1:00pm. We had a class of ten new Moose Legionnaires and we had the International Moose Legion President Walt Zurowski as our guest speaker and his wife Peggie. Walt came in on Thursday afternoon and we took him to Joliet and Lockport, then on Friday we went to Elgin, St. Charles for lunch, Lombard, Downers Grove, Plainfield and Yorkville for dinner. Saturday we went to Batavia for the Awards banquet then we went to DeKalb and back to St. Charles. They had a great time and the Directors want to thank the Lodges for the hospitality they showed Walt and his wife Peggie.
This year we put together an AD BOOK for our Lodges, Moose Legion Committees, Chapters and any other person wanting to advertise in it. We started late on it and still had eight Lodges and District 2 put in Ads in the book. Our goal with this Ad Book is for it to cover the expense of the Awards dinner. We need your support in doing this so we can work towards our goal of being able to make this a free event in the future. Anyone can put an Ad in the book Lodge, Moose Legion, Chapter, Venders or anyone with a business. Hopefully we have a 100 % participation next year.
Applications we have 25 outstanding members to get conferred our next conferral is March 12 in Plainfield after their breakfast at 12:30. Sponsors I'm not sure if you are aware of this but in the Moose Legion you get a credit for signing the New member and 2nd point when he is enrolled, (not re-enrollments or multi members– as they are not required to attend the conferral.) So if you are just signing members and not making sure they get enrolled you are losing valuable points. I will be sending the sponsors a letter to remind them and hope they will get their Applicant to a conferral.
We are in our last quarter of this year and our numbers are dropping not just in membership but across the board. Participation in event, New Application signed up, Endowment fund, etc. The Directors are making phone call to the members in the arrears trying to see why they have not paid their dues. The answers we get are not all positive. We need your help if you know anyone who is in the Arrears please contact them and find out why they haven't paid their dues, if they have any questions that you can’t answer please have them contact me.
If anyone would like to have the Newsletter Emailed to them instead of having it mailed to them let me know
