MOOSE RIDERS NEWS
The holiday season is over and believe it or not we have
been able to ride our cycles deep into the winter this year. It is hard
to believe that you could ride your cycle in December and not have
to worry about cold weather or cinders on the road. It was nice to
do that late season riding but I do believe we are soon going to get
back to reality. It is again the end of the year and my 1st year as
Moose Rider President has come to an end. We had our annual
officer elections and all positions have remained the same for this
year. Our officers are Kevin Stuck - President; Dave Baldyga – Vice
President, Christine Stuck – Treasurer; Jamie Barrett-Fetters -
Secretary; Jeff Fetters – Sergeant of Arms; Bud Balliet – Jr Past
President; and Steven Sunday Sr. – Chaplain. We look forward to
serving you again this year.
We ask you to support the Moose Riders and the Lodge in
this time of need. Our wing nights will continue throughout the
winter into the spring and we look for great attendance to support
our cause. We have wings of many flavors and 2 kinds of French
fries. We even have boneless wings that you can get if you don’t
like the standard wings. The wing nights are held every 1st and 3rd
Thursday of each month unless otherwise noted. We have a great
group of regulars that show up each time but would like to see
some new faces come out to try our great wings. Any suggestions
on making even better are always appreciated. The Moose Riders
take great pride in supporting anything they can in the community
and the lodge. Recently the Moose Riders have donated monies to
help the Lodge Bar purchase two metered liquor pourers that will
help us control expenses on alcohol and make it easier for the
bartenders to server our wonderful members. Watch for them
coming soon. Also over the holiday season the Moose Riders
donated over $600 to the local charity of Mother Hubbard’s
Cupboard to help them in their Holiday needs. This is the main
charity for the Moose Riders. They also gave toys collected at the
Glow Party and from donating members to the children at the local
shelter to enjoy Christmas. It is things like this that the Moose and
Moose Riders do that is so very important to the community.
Although you will not hear the rumble of the Moose Riders
and their motorcycles at the lodge in the next couple of months, we
are still present and doing great things. Watch the Moose Rider
board for upcoming events and ways of supporting their efforts and
efforts of the lodge. If you see a member that hasn’t been at the
Moose in a while, invite them back, take them out for a buffet meal
and remind them of the great benefits of their lodge membership
and all the other benefits that it presents them.
In conclusion, I would like to thank everyone supporting
me and my Moose Rider panel this year and look forward to
supporting you and our members in this upcoming season. We are
looking forward to the State Rally coming up in Curwensville lodge
this year and supporting their great efforts. Have a save winter and
look forward to seeing everyone and their shiny rides this spring!
Ride safe and ride hard. Moose Rider members, remember to get
your activity fees of $10 to Jamie Barrett-Fetters for the 2016
season.

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.
