Mother nature seems to be taking her good old time bringing on the riding weather. I think maybe she doesn't get out of the house much anymore and is just plain jealous of those of us on two wheels! Anyway, we're still early in the season and there are a couple of events to mention in the near future. Due to the numerous suggestions and veiled threats, we will be having our next Glow Party on April 25th in the social quarters. The Traveling Trophy ride will be hosted by the Lewistown Moose FC on Saturday June 25th. Kick stands up at 11:00 AM, the ride begins and ends at the Lewistown Lodge. The Moose Riders will be having a Cash Party on October 4th in the ballroom. The public is invited.
The Moose Riders will be doing our final Wing Nite for the season on Thursday April 3rd. The Moose Legion will be taking over for the summer with essentially the same format.
Moose Rider monthly meetings will be held April 21st, May 19th and June 16th, all Mondays at 6:00 PM. All Moose Rider members are encouraged to show up and lend their thoughts.
To everyone at Lewistown Lodge 143, the Moose Riders hope you had a safe and happy Spring 2014.

Hi Friends and Fellow Members
For all you cabin fever horseshoe enthusiasts, as soon as old man winter makes up with Mother Nature and we hit the 60 degree sunny day mark, horseshoes will be under way. Hoping to start middle to end of April practice sessions, which will turn into actual competition beginning of May. Plan on attending a work party to get the pits ready sometime in April. Please contact your new chairman of horseshoes, Stephen Dudick, phone number 717-994-0815 for details.
As you know I will be retiring, and as the chairman of the Sports Activities, my plans are to give this up as well. It is normally up to the new governor to appoint his committees, so to help him a little, if any member is interested in taking over as sports chairman, please let the governor know.
Later, Bob McCartney, Jr., Sports Chairman

Moose Riders Cook Books Are Now Available
Cost Is $10 And They Are For Sale In The Lounge

Proceeds To Benefit The Annual "Ride 4 Kids"

Saturday, March 6, 2010
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.

Gimme 5, a special "Endowment Fund"
"GIMME FIVE" -- What Is It? Nothing More,
or Less, Than A Simple Plan to Help Ensure
The Future of Mooseheart and Moosehaven.
Five cents – set aside from the change you
pour into your pocket or purse in the morning.
Five more cents -- set aside from the change
you empty from your pocket or purse in the
evening. Just that: a nickel in the morning, a
nickel in the evening, set aside and sent to
Moose Charities, for the kids of Mooseheart
and the seniors of Moosehaven. That's the
"GIMME FIVE" program -- it's really
nothing more than that. It's that simple -- but
participating in "Gimme Five" can be even
simpler: Instead of trying to remember to
physically set aside a nickel in the morning and
a nickel in the evening from June 2007 through 2012,
you can...-- Mail Moose Charities a check for
your annual "Gimme Five" contribution of
$36.50, or all five years at once for $182.50,
to Moose Charities, 155 S. International Dr.,
Mooseheart, IL 60539-1100.

This special "Endowment Fund", was put into place
back in June of 2007. And it was set-up as a five
year campaign, to help ensure the children at
Mooseheart, and the seniors at Mooseheaven continue
to have a safe and well balanced environment to
live in for many years to come.

(Any questions, please phone Moose
Charities at 630-966-2200.)

As the lodge and state co-chairman, Iam asking you to
please consider contrubuting to this special fund. I
update the "Wall of Honor" (in the front foyer) every month,
I would like to see the list grow. With 3000 plus men and women
members of this lodge and chapter, this list should be larger
than it really is, so please for the benifit of the residents of Mooseheart and Mooseheaven, please support this cause.

"Thank you for all you do!!"

Matthew Reik,
Gimme 5 Chairman
