Treasurer's Corner
Hello everyone. I hope this newsletter finds everyone in good health.

I have a few things that I would like to share with everyone. We will be closing the Lodge on Monday’s starting the 10th of July until October because of the lack of business. This is a decision made by the Board of Officers and it was a hard thing to do but what everyone needs to remember, this is a business and we are not here to continue to lose money. The Board of Officers were going to change the time of the LOOM meeting but decided to leave it the same. The Lodge front door will be opened about 15 minutes before the meeting and you will enter to the Great Hall only. The Social Quarter will not be open. I am sure some out there will not like this move but like I said this is a business.

We are making some other changes in your lodge that we hope will bring some more of you back in, we have cleaned up the Karaoke area and will be making it much brighter. We are bringing in another dart machine and placing it in the Social Quarters. We plan on starting a dart tournament as soon as we get that area all cleaned up with new paint and decorations. I would like to thank Becky for doing the painting and Sam for donating the paint.

We are doing the 4th of July party just like we do every year. We will be doing everything in the Great Hall because the weather is so crazy this time of year. The side bar will be open for this event, serving cold beverages to everyone ( for a fee ). There will be cold drinks for the kids and bottled water that will be free along with the Hamburgers, hot dogs, bake beans and coleslaw. If you can bring a dish to share also that would be great.

For those that don’t know there will be a vote this weekend to stop smoking inside all Lodges in the Fraternity. If this passes this will go into effect January 1,2018. That means there will be no smoking inside any Lodge. We were going to build a smoking area after we but that got shot down by the membership. That whole meeting was to discuss ways to help the lodge but instead turned into a shouting contest. Our current lodge is over 40 years old and is in need of a lot or repairs that we can’t do or can’t afford to have repairs done. Volunteers are doing the best they can but they are getting tired of just patching things up, I know I am. We have over 600 male members and I believe over 400 women members in our lodge but can’t seem to get more that 12 people to show up when we do a clean- up around the lodge. That is pretty sad. I know some will say that’s because they did know we were doing it but if you was supporting your lodge you would know. I would like for you to think about something for a minute. If you come out on Friday night for dinner think about the people that server you and cook your food. Every one of these folks volunteer’s to do this for you. If it was not for these people and the ones that cook on Wednesday and everyone else that does in fact volunteer think of the things that would not be going on in YOUR lodge.

There is a lot of things we could be doing and I hear people talk about what other lodges do but they have support from their membership in order to do this. A lot of this sound negative and is but we need to get the word out. We need you to start coming out. If there is a problem or a reason why you are not coming call the lodge and talk to me, Pam or one of the Board of Officers so we can address the problem. We have been ask to put out a suggestion box for this also and we have. Please feel free to put you concerns or complaints in the box if you don’t want to talk to us. That is all for now. I hope to see you at YOUR lodge soon.

Thank you all, I hope you have a safe and happy 4th of July.
