Just wanted to say Happy Holidays to all of you and your families. It's been a great year here at the lodge and it wouldn't be possible without your continued support and attendance to our many functions and dinners. The lodge has increased its membership and we have many new faces around here; Let's all do our part in showing them the ways of the lodge. This can only be done if we lead by example. I challenge all members to pick someone to mentor and let them see how we do it at the Moose, show them how to behave in the social quarters, help out with setting dining area up, and volunteering at our events. This will take a lot of stress off the people who continually volunteer all the time, you know who you are, thanks again. Things to look forward to in 2015: more live music on weekends; Queen of Hearts; Karaoke; and great food from our kitchen volunteers headed by Jayme Pena who has done an amazing job for our lodge. Also let's give Seth Casey a hand this coming year as he is your new Governor of Lodge 1417. I, Joseph Albertson am now your Admininstrator and can't wait to give my full attention to one title and make this lodge and social quarters a lot of fun and a profit we can be proud of. Once again, Happy Holidays to all of you, from me.
