I wish to thank each and every member who stepped up and helped with our third annual “Moose Angel Project”! This is a
project developed to help ensure less fortunate children in our area will have a good Christmas. By which area churches,
businesses, organizations and individuals ask their customers or members to participate by selecting an angel from the tree,
which has a child’s name, age and suggested gift on it, then goes and purchases the suggested gift, returns it un-wrapped and
then I delivered the gifts to the organizers for processing and wrapping and then distributing to the area children. When I
delivered the gifts to the organizers, WOW what a site to see, a very large room filled with wrapped gifts waiting to be
distributed to the children. I spoke with them and ask roughly how many children are affected through this and she said 1100
– 1200 children. I’m just glad to know that we, members of the Lewistown Moose Family Center, helped put a smile on 75
children’s faces this Christmas!! THANK YOU ALL!! If you were unlucky to hear of this project too late, well we will be
participating again in 2014 and I will ask for more names, so please watch for the Moose Angel board in the social quarters
around November 2014.

Dear Co-Workers,
We start this newsletter with the details of the month
of October and the Mooseheart and Moosehaven activity night
events. The evening started at 6:00 pm with a meal of tossed
salad, meatball sandwich, rice pudding, and ginger bread.
Chairman Lisa Baitsell and her committee decorated the tables
with red tablecloths and in the center of the tables were battery
lighted candles in a Christmas wreath, and placed at each table
setting was a Christmas pin. The meeting followed with a
special endowment fund collection for the children at
Mooseheart and the seniors at Moosehaven so they may enjoy
the Christmas season.
November was College of Regents month and we
honored all the Co-Workers who hold the College of Regents
Degree. Chairman Nancy Hill and her committee served ham
and chicken salad sandwiches with chicken noodle soup and
cupcakes. Nancy decorated the table with Thanksgiving as the
theme she place a Thanksgiving tray in the center of the table
and a paper turkey on top. The meeting followed with special
recognition to Nancy Hill and Catherine Lindenmuth on
receiving their Red Stole.
December was Community Service month and ProTem
Chairman Bonnie Musser decorated the tables with a
coffee mug filled with candy and sitting on a Christmas pot
holder. She served a meal of applesauce, pot roast, bread with
butter and for dessert we had a variety of cookies along with
coffee. The meeting followed and all who attended had a good
January will start the nominating committee meetings
for the new officers. Anyone interested in becoming an officer
or chairman you may talk to an officer for more information

Cold weather has moved in and the bikes are put away for the season,
however, there is still warmth in our hearts and good deeds to do in our
Moose Lodge and Moose Rider charities like Mother Hubbard’s Cupboard. I
would first like to thank our outgoing President, Gary Wolfe and all that he
has done for the Moose Riders of Lodge #143, I’m sure that his great
leadership of the club for the last 2 years will be greatly missed. I am hoping
that I can continue the great Moose Rider tradition.
After saying that, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Kevin Stuck,
a local resident born and raised in the Lewistown area and a Moose member
for the last 13 years. I am also an active Legion member and sit on the
Moose board as a 3-year Trustee. I am very honored to be elected as the
new Moose Rider President and hope I can live up to the standards and
make the Moose Riders grow and continue to do many good things in our
region and our Lodge.
Watch for our ongoing events such as Wing Nights every 1st and 3rd
Thursday of the month. They kicked off in October and every week has
grown with stellar turn outs. We would just love to fill the social quarters
with folks eating our wonderful wings. We have introduced 3 new flavors
such as Chipotle Ranch, Hartley’s Salt and Vinegar, and Kickin’ Bourbon
Molasses. They are to die for! Oh, and don’t forget the awesome fresh-cut
french fries and sweet-potato fries. We also are kicking it up on the 3rd
Friday of each month with our Glow Parties. These are a great time to come
out in your Glow-In-the-Dark attire and have lots of fun dancing, listening to
music, and spending time with friends all under the black lights.
In the months to come, we are gearing up for our State Moose Rider Rally
that will be held at the Lewistown Moose Lodge this year. It will be a fun
time had by all with games, vendors, food, fellowship, and much, much more.
Oh, and don’t forget the Motorcycle ride!
We invite all members to join our fellowship of Moose Riders, all are
welcome, bike or not. We have social members as well. Meetings are held at
the Moose Lodge every 3rd Monday of the month at 6:30PM. In the warmer
months we meet down back on the “Back 40” and enjoy the outdoors.
In conclusion, I am looking forward to my first term as Moose Rider
President and I am excited for the year to come. Please come out and
support us and let’s all make this year a success. Keep the wheels on the
road and your hearts filled with Moose thoughts. See you at the next Moose
Rider meeting!
Kevin Stuck
Lewistown 143 Moose Riders President

There are many reasons we here at the Lewistown Moose Family Center have joined with our members and co- workers all over the world. We as memebers all have accepted the challenging task of providing for the children at Mooseheart and the seniors at Moosehaven. The men and woman of the Lodge achieve this by supporting faternal programs and functions of Moose International. If you have ever had the chance to meet a child with no one or no where to turn to would you try to help?
If you would, you have the heart of a moose member . We change these kids lives by giving them a place to live , food to eat and an education . The family values these kids learn and the friends they make, will start them off on the right path to become respectable leaders of tomorrow.
