MOOSE RIDERS NEWS
Well the time has come, it is hard to believe it has been 2
years since I took over as the Moose Rider president. I can’t
say the journey has been an easy one, but it was a fun ride.
We have made many donations and done a little bit around
the Lodge to make it a little better too. We might be small in
numbers, but we have big hearts when it comes to donating
time and monies to local charities.
I’ll never forget the tear jerking moments while
attending the Isabella Rose rides. It was getting started when
I joined the club and I attended most of the rides to support
it. It is such a great cause that I hope they continue it well
into the future. It is a nice ride that moves from club to club,
but it is the true meaning behind it that is so great. My hat is
off to Mike and his daughter for what they have
accomplished.
I have seen a number of Moose Rallies come and go.
They are a great time with lots of fun, food, and fellowship.
And oh, did I mentioned the number of great looking bikes.
It is fun just to get away and join your fellow Moose Riders
for the weekend. I actually got the privilege of hosting the
2015 Rally. Although it was a lot of work, our group pulled it
off and it was a great weekend,
Mother Hubbard’s cupboard, what can I say. It is a
great thing that we raise monies for them and donate it. Not
matter how big or small the donation the people are always
so grateful whenever we can give them a donation to
brighten their day. It makes even a big burly guy like myself
melt whenever you can do something to make someone
else’s life just a little better.
Although I won’t be leading the meetings or in
charge of the Riders anymore, I am still going to be there for
one of the most known events the Moose Riders accomplish
month after month. Wing Night! We have taken it from just
a winter event to a 12 month event and it is growing and
growing as the word gets out. We have added new flavors
and even an All-U-Can-Eat option that is gaining popularity.
My wife and I enjoy doing it and talking to the new folks and
the regulars month after month.
So in closing, I wish the new board coming in much
success. I will still be on the board, but it is time for someone
else to take the handlebars. Ride hard, ride free. See you this
summer when the bikes are rumbling in the parking lot. Wish
everyone luck and Ride On. Thank you for your continued
support in the past. Go Moose Riders!

THE REASON WE ENJOY BEING MOOSE MEMBERS AND CO- WORKERS
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.
