Well it’s hard to believe that the summer is almost over. We
still have about 3 good months of riding yet, but then it will be time to
put the bikes away again until next year. Sad to say to this will be my
last newsletter as your Moose Riders President as well. The last two
years has been very busy and I didn’t really get to accomplish everything
that I wanted to do as your Moose Rider President, but I am very happy
to have had the opportunity to lead such a fine group.
Since our last new letter, we have had the Annual Traveling
Trophy ride once again. Thought it was not attended quite as well as it
could have been, we still had a great time with the folks that did show
up. We raised over $800 for the two food banks which is much needed
at these organizations. For the second year in a row the Lewistown
Moose Riders brought home the Traveling Trophy as a winner with the
most donations. The ride was a little over a hundred mile run from
Lewistown to Selinsgrove and back up through to Millerstown Lodge
and back through Hawstone to the home Lodge.
Also this summer we attended the Annual Isabella Rose ride,
which I think was held on the hottest day of the summer. It was also not
very well attended this year, but they may be in part to the change of
the date from previous years. Even so, it was a very touching ride and a
great fundraiser for the project. The Lewistown Moose Riders made a
donation to the cause of $1,000 which is greatly appreciated. I have
personally attended this event 3 out of the 4 years it has been held and
feel it is a great cause, not to mention a great group of folks to ride
with. This year’s event was held in Elizabethtown.
The Moose Riders also sponsored an event for the riders and
the Lodge members that wanted to attend. We rented the Proud Mary
boat at Raystown Lake for a cruise and fine dining experience. It was
not attended quite as well as anticipated, but the people that did go
loved the boat ride and couldn’t talk enough about the food. In fact, we
enjoyed it so much we are talking about going back for a fall fest ride in
October. This will not be funded by the Moose Riders for the whole
boat, but we are looking at getting a big group to go so it will be similar
to renting it. Watch for details.
Many of you have noticed some construction going on outside
the bar area of the Moose. For the mess, I apologize, however it has
pretty much come to a completion. The sheds were moved down back
to make better use of them for events held down back so things would
not have to be carried up and down the hill. This allowed the beautiful
view to the down back area from the parking lot that folks can see what
a beautiful lodge we have. In place of the sheds we have poured a
cement slab for motorcycle parking. The Moose Riders have sponsored
this for the Lodge to better serve not only the motorcycle riders to the
lodge, but also free up parking spaces for regular cars to park closer to
the door without having to contend with motorcycles. It is a win for
everyone. It is not completed yet, but the plan is to put up colored
dullard covers on the posts and put a fence behind the parking area to
give it some beauty and class. There will also be some flowers/shrubs
later on.
There are so many things to talk about with Moose Riders and
everything it stands for I could go on forever, however, the newsletter is
only so big. I just want to say it has been a great two years as your
President and I wish the next incoming president as much fun and
enjoyment that I have had the past two years. Wish everyone luck and
Ride On. Go Moose Riders!

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.
