Why do people leave our beautiful Lodge?
Lately it seems we have been plagued by a few Moose members that come to the bar and just can keep their comments to themselves. They gossip about other people. They make hurtful comments about others. They make an environment that is hostile and not conducive to enjoying one's self at a very nice place.
Is it the pressure of the holidays? Is it self interest to make others feel bad?
All it does is make the person gossiping and making hurtful comments look bad. It is a direct reflection on YOUR character not the person you are talking about. Sadly, this is human nature and very common no matter the establishment or business.
We are a Fraternal Organization that is founded on the precepts of, "doing some good thing for someone each day." We cherish the children and seniors. That is our mission. We support local charity. We do a lot of good things every day. We are better than this.
As a patron of the Moose Social Quarters you are guest of everyone's home. As a member you have the privilege to be here and enjoy your experience. We welcome you and members of other Lodges with hospitality and friendship. It is fun to visit other Lodges.
We ask that if you can't say something good about a member keep it to yourself. Enjoy your refreshments and meal. We thank you! If you can't then you will be asked to leave. We enforce decorum. Since it is a privilege to be in the Social Quarters negative conduct will not be tolerated. You will be refused service and asked to leave.
To make it simple and avoid the negativity, keep your comments positive and lock up the negatives. Go home and spew the venom in a garage, in your car, a shed, or your home if that has to happen. Not at the Lodge. There has been too much profanity as well. Please refrain from profanity inside the Social Quarters.
We love this Lodge. Everyone has the right to love this Lodge to be free from harassment, hostility, and gossip. If your not part of the solution you are the problem and you will be removed.
