Going Green (er)
You may have noticed we are switching internal lighting in the Lodge. One of the compliments we always receive is how bright and clean our Lodge is!
We are changing the bar social area over to compact florescent lights and LED lights. This will bring a huge savings over the year as compact lights use 65% less electricity and dimmable LED lights use up to 90% less electricity. The initial purchase of the lights is a bit spendier, but in the long run we save.
We will be replacing the exterior lights so the lots are brighter and the horseshoe pit area will have brighter lights for later in the season.
With the help of Mike Beirmeier (Past Governor and Fellow) and Dakota Supply Group (also generous supporters of our Lodge) we are making a transition. Please thank Mike for his efforts. His efforts will save a lot of money for the Lodge.

1088 Phrases of the Year
"Don't dwell on what went wrong. Instead, focus on what to do next. Spend your energies on moving forward toward finding the answer" author unknown.
The greatest leader is not necessarily the one who does the greatest things...He is the one to get the (people) members to do the greatest things!
It is solely for our children and seniors and local community service. The rest is negotiable.
The TV's are off...did they for forget to pay the bill? In reality the bartender just didn't power them up for the day..
Moose Pride!! 1088 to the TOP!!

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.
We have given three weeks notice 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.
* OUR LODGE GAMING IS RUN BY THE FRATERNAL ORDER OF POLICE. GUESTS MAY PURCHASE PULL-TABS AND PLAY BINGO AT LODGE 1088.
* 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.
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 Regional 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.

Membership Drive Save $20.00 on the Application fees LOOM & WOTM also $10.00 on the Moose legion
For the Month of January, Moose International has eliminated the $20.00 application fee. Join now for $50.00 LOOM and $35.00 for Women. Moose Legion dues are just $15.00!! Receive free dues for sponsoring 2 applications!!
Questions see Jay Hunziker, LOOM Membership chair or Carole Tuckner, WOTM Membership chair (or any WOTM Board member). Moose Legion Mark Flascher.
"Why should I pay my dues?" As Steve Blaha put it, "you give to Charity every year. Think of your dues as nothing different! Your dues go to support our Children at Mooseheart and our Seniors at Moosehaven. Beyond that, you get the rewards of membership at a Lodge where you can have fun at events, drink at a reduced rate, and eat great food! That is the hidden benefits of membership. We are not just a bar. We are a social structure that has a great purpose. When you think of those kids and seniors, that alone should be reason enough to pay your dues!!" The Moose Lodge is the safest, friendliest, and most fun place in town!
