Someone Else
We are saddened to learn last week of the death of one of our most valuable members, “Someone Else.” Someone Else’s passing creates a vacancy that will be hard to fill. Else has been with us for many years and every one of those years, Someone Else did far more than a normal person’s share.
Whenever leadership was mentioned, this wonderful person was looked to for inspiration as well as results. “Someone Else can work with the group.” Whenever there was a job to do, one name was always on everyone’s list. “Someone Else will do it.” It was common knowledge that Someone Else was always the one the organization relied upon to support a particular project.
Were the truth known, everyone expected too much of Someone Else. Now Someone Else is gone. WHO is going to do the things that Someone Else did? When you have a chance to articipate in our activities, REMEMBER…we cannot depend on Someone Else anymore.

Brothers and Co-Workers,

Before we talk about anything else, the members of the Loyal Order of Moose would like to give a great big thank you to the Women of the Moose, Chapter 902 for their donation of $1,000.00. THANK YOU SO MUCH! We also want to give a shout out to Trudy Stoddard, who on a monthly basis, donates $300.00 to the Downey Moose Family Center. THANK YOU!
Unfortunately, Moose International turned us down on the grant for the ceiling fans in the Hall. That’s okay. We’ll get it done. After all, we’re the Downey Moose. I’ve been given a couple leads to look into. I’ll keep you informed.
A few people made comments about some of the negativity in the last Announcer. I apologize for that. I felt it was necessary so that the membership doesn’t go down the wrong road and believe things that are not true. We are succeeding in what we set out to do—creating a Family Center for it’s members and qualified guests. A place where we have fun and fellowship.
On to other news. Our electric bill is going down. We’re still consolidating things. We’re negotiating with one of our beer distributors into installing the draft beer taps into the wall coming directly out of the walk-in cooler. In the meantime, we’ve discontinued draft beer and have unplugged the keg-arator. As soon as we get this done, we’ll be bringing back the draft beer along with a few specialty beers.
We’ve been having an increase in participation on Monday and Sunday afternoon activities and at our meals. On Friday, October 5th, we sold out of everything. WOW! Thanks to all who have been coming down. If you haven’t had the time yet, please try to do so. It’s a lot of fun and tasty, and even if you don’t participate, it’s a great time to just socialize.
We’ve also seen an increase in the number of people volunteering. One member read it in her Announcer and asked what she could do. She now volunteers on Friday nights at bingo. Others, with limited mobility, have also asked if they could help out and they are. Thank you all so much! It’s truly appreciated. Every little bit helps.
Membership is on the rise. Word is getting out about all the good things we’re doing within the community, the friendliness of the membership, the great food we serve and the variety of activities we have. We have to give a special shout out to the Camper Club for all the members they’ve been signing up.
Speaking of the Camper Club; Malinda, Delilah, Angelina and myself were able to spend Saturday, October 6th with them. What a fun and friendly group of Moose members. Their support of the Fraternity and especially our Family Center is unwavering. Thank you!
That same fun and friendliness of the Camper Club is coming back to the Lodge. We’re coming together, enjoying the activities, along with each other. And seeing activities going on in both the Hall and Social Quarters at the same time is terrific.
And have you looked at that calendar? Wow, it’s packed full of activities and events, just for you. Take advantage of them all. If there’s something you would like to see happen, let us know, we’d love to hear them.
