Hello Fraternal Members,
This will be my final post as President of Eureka Lodge 636.
The nominations committee will soon meet to select a new Board of Officers for the 2023-2024 year. If you are interested in being part of our governing board, please contact Jim Walker, our Lodge Administrator.
I would like to extend a big thank you to our Lodge volunteers, folks who give up so much of their time throughout the year to keep this great Lodge running. We sincerely value your time. Thanks go out especially to Dan Rickman and his crew who have donated many hours cleaning the grounds around the Lodge property.
WHY IS VOLUNTEERING SO IMPORTANT?
We rely on our volunteers to help us raise funds to keep our Lodge afloat and support MooseHeart and MooseHaven. Just a few hours each month cooking, cleaning, or hosting an event can make a HUGE difference to our Lodge's success. We cannot function without your help; the officerscannot do it alone. What's that old saying? "If everyone does a little, no one does a lot."
I'll wrap this up with a friendly reminder about protocol. Please keep in mind the rules of our Lodge when you bring guests in to visit. A guest may visit the Lodge only twice - the third time they must become a member. Guests must be signed in by a member plus you are responsible for that guest's behavior, and children must be supervised.
If you don't like they way our Lodge
works, Volunteer and change things.
If you don't like the way our Lodge
looks, Volunteer and fix things.
If you don't like the meals, Volunteer to
make a meal once a month.
Instead of sitting around complaining...
Welcome to the new Moose Year! New, you ask? Yes, our Lodge & Fraternal calendar starts May 1st each year. To start out the new year, the Eureka Moose Lodge is 432 members strong! Many thanks to those that sponsored new members during the past year!
Did you know?
The Moose fraternity has a child city and school called Mooseheart. Mooseheart is a residential childcare facility, located on a 1,000-acre campus 38 miles west of Chicago. The Child City is a home for children and teens in need, from infancy through high school. Dedicated in July 1913 by the Moose fraternal organization, Mooseheart cares for youth whose families are unable, for a wide variety of reasons, to care for them. Some have lost one or both parents; others are living in environments that are simply not conducive to healthy growth and development. Whatever the reason, the men and women of the Moose, through unparalleled generosity and volunteerism, furnish the resources necessary to care for children in need. The Moose fraternity provides children with a wholesome home-like environment and the best possible training and education.
On April 26th, the Eureka Lodge elected the following members to Lodge Board of Officers:
President - Steve Caprile
V.P - Shelia Miranda
Treasurer - Fernanda Rhead
Chaplain - Heidi Heim
Trustee (1 Year) - Ed Dare
Trustee (2 Year) - Lucinda Lovett
Trustee (3 Year) - Tim Milton
Thank you to those that "threw-their-hat" into the ring wanting to be a Officer for 2023-24!
