From the Administrator….
Our fiscal year is now 3/4ths over. We are fulfilling our obligations to Mooseheart and Moosehaven and we have much to be proud of in our Lodge and Chapter.
I‘m sure everyone who enjoys mixed drinks has noticed that our bartenders are using shot glasses. All our drink prices are calculated on a 1 1/4 oz. volume. This allows us to keep our prices lower than public accommodations and competitive with other Fraternal Organizations. It is necessary to keep this beverage volume at no more than 1 1/4 oz. in order to maintain enough profit to pay our bills, build a back-up for upcoming equipment replacements, repairs and all the other items that are necessary to continue to keep our doors open.
Retention of members continues to remain a problem, not only with our lodge, but almost every lodge in the fraternity. We have continued to keep our dues at $45.00,even though Moose International allows us only $11.00 of each members yearly dues to use in the operation of the lodge. Thus it is necessary that we continue all our activities and insure that all facets of this lodge remain on a profitable basis.
