IMPORTANT NOTICE TO ALL MEMBERS
Be prepared to show your Moose membership card at any time. Moose
International has told all Lodges to have a stricter policy pertaining to
having members show their cards. You
will have to show your Moose membership card, with expiration date, when
entering the lodge for the Friday night meal, all lodge sponsored meals and when
signing up for the drawings. On Friday nights and for lodge sponsored meals, the
chair person sitting at the sign up table will ask to see your card. Please have
it ready to avoid any confusion. The bartenders can ask to see your card at any
time and will ask for it when
you sign up for the drawings or when you redeem your entertainment. You need to
carry the card at all times. You
must have it or you will be asked to go get it.
If your dues are expired, you are not allowed in the lodge for any reason, not even as a guest (General Laws 50.2, Section 10 from Moose International).

Lodge 1516 is made up of a large number of members. It is these members that make the lodge the place that it is. We need your help in continuing one of the main attractions to our lodge…the Family Night Meal on Friday night. We are always in need of cooking crews of 6-8 people. Each crew is asked to be at the lodge around 5:00 p.m. Each crew needs someone to take orders, a fish fry-person, a grill person, a fry-person for French fries, etc., a person to plate the orders and deliver them and a dishwasher. Extra hands are always good at delivering meals and bringing the dishes to the dishwasher. At the current time, there are eight crews, which means you cook every 8 weeks. If we could have 9 crews, you would cook once every 9 weeks, which means no one gets burned out. Please submit your 6-8 person crew list along with the captain of the crew’s phone number to the bartender and we will get your crew scheduled. Thank you for your assistance with this matter!
A PIECE OF THE SOLUTION
One sure way to continue the great lodge we have…NEW MEMBERS!!!! Men’s quota for the 12-13 year is 84. Women’s quota for the 12-13 year is 67. Ask a friend to join today!!!!!
