"I didn't know"
We hear this all the time. People's responses to missing news or an event. Some members are genuinely upset they missed an event that was fun!

We make many posters and 3 foot x 10 foot banners and hang them at the Lodge until it looks like a boarded up warehouse in Minneapolis.

New Bar Stools- Thank You to Donnie Machacek
We have received and put together 16 new bar stools for the Lodge. We would like to thank Donnie Machacek for making the donation from the BBLO- Bernie's Booya Lives On proceeds. The stools will need some "breaking in" to be as comfortable as the old stools! Come down and help break in the new chairs!

South Saint Paul Lodge did not purchase these. They came from direct donation from a generous member- Donnie Machacek!

We want to recognize the dedication and hard work from Donnie and his crew for making this generous donation happen.

Thank You!

We have providing meals to 35 families on average each year. Your giving makes a difference on those receiving this needed basket. The smiles we see on the receiving family accepting their basket is worth the weight in gold. Some have cried when we deliver baskets.

Please nominate a family to receive a bit of cheer for Thanksgiving that has experienced job loss, family member loss, illness, financial hardship, or other hardship.

We will be accepting monetary donations at the Social Quarters bar for providing baskets.

SOCIAL QUARTERS RULES
This has always been the policy of the Moose International but not enforced as well as it should have been:

The front door will be closed unless staffed by a Moose Member or an Officer. Membership card access is required.

The House Committee will be enforcing this rule.

* ONLY MEMBERS IN GOOD STANDING (NOT IN ARREARS) MAY PURCHASE ALCOHOL.
* GUESTS MAY NOT PURCHASE ALCOHOL.
* FOR LODGES THAT HAVE THEIR OWN GAMING LICENSES THIS ALSO TRUE FOR PULL TABS AND BINGO.
*THERE IS NO GAMING, WAGERING, OR SPORTS BETTING AUTHORIZED IN THE SOCIAL QUARTERS AT ANY TIME WITH EXCEPTION OF BINGO AT LODGE 1088 IS PLAYED WITH STATE PERMIT AND DISPENSATION FROM MOOSE INTL AS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC WITH ALCOHOL.
*GUESTS ARE ALLOWED ONLY TWO VISITS (non bingo) BEFORE THEY ARE REQUIRED TO FILL OUT A MEMBERSHIP APPLICATION.
* FOR ALCOHOL PURCHASES YOU MUST SHOW YOUR MEMBERSHIP CARD ON THE FIRST DRINK TO THE SERVER.
*If you are not current in your dues you will not be allowed to participate in Moose Horseshoe, Golf, Bowling, and Dart Leagues until your dues are paid current.

CHECK POLICY - Only members may write a check at the Lodge. The maximum allowable amount is $50.00 per Family (Husband/Wife). One check will only be accepted per day.

Why is this being done now?
1) If you go to any other Moose Lodge you are required to present your card to the server or pull-tab sellers. We should be no different.

2) Some members will not pay their dues because their membership card has meant little in terms of access.

PLEASE BE KIND TO THE SERVER. This is not their call as they are only doing what they are directed to by the House Committee and Moose International's Territorial Manager. We have asked the servers to use common sense in enforcing this.

We ask for your cooperation in this issue.

Reminder, we do not accept Business checks other than rentals or donations, 3rd party checks, or money orders.
With thanks,
The House Committee
