Unless you are a member of Colonial Beach Moose Lodge,it shouldn't concern you the reason they are closed for a week.
Funny all the nasty remarks made concerning this great Fraternal Organization. Are any of you aware of the great community service they do? Are you aware that they adopted families for Thanksgiving and Christmas? Do you know that they visit the local nursing homes and take little gifts to all the residents? Do you know that the Lodge as well as the Women contribute thousands of dollars to local fire departments, rescue squads, library, offer scholarships to high school seniors and also a nursing student? As well as national charities such as Alzheimer's Association, St Baldrick's Children's Cancer research and many more.
Not everyone is a member because they have a social quarters, if you are so interested in the Moose and not a member contact the Lodge and someone will gladly explain what we are truly about! Do you know that every Lodge and Chapter help to keep our child city Mooseheart running and our Senior home Moosehaven? Probably not because unless you are a member you do not know about all this.
People like to talk when things aren't perfect but see no thread of all the good the Moose does.
If the Moose is closed because of a missed meeting, yes the MEMBERSHIP should be aware of this BUT NOT THE GENERAL PUBLIC. Why? Because the Moose is a private organization that you have to be a member of to get these details and unless you attend meetings you should have no way of knowing.
Oh and just a reminder to all that posted on this thread, the Officers are humans and yes they make mistakes. Have each of you never made a mistake or forgotten to do something you were supposed to? If you say you have never forgotten to do something or made a mistake you know that is untrue!
Ponder these thoughts as you continue to slam the Moose. It's a shame people have nothing better to do than be negative about an Organization that works hard for the community as well as Mooseheart and Moosehaven.
Soonergal can you explain to me what MISS is? I AM a member and have no idea what MISS is or why they would have the authority to "shut us down".
