Riding season is once again upon us. Time to get the bikes
out of the garage, get them polished and shined and let’s hit the road.
Many of us are getting tired of being cooped up in the house and not
being able to hit the open road. There are many things to look forward
to for this year’s Moose Riders.
We are looking at some new ideas to try out this year to see if
we can spark some new interest and retain our current members. We
are currently in the process of checking out rates, times and availability
to go on the Proud Mary which is a boat that cruises Lake Raystown.
The event would be a dinner and cruise combo and would be open to
Moose Riders and we are also looking at including any interested
Moose members as well. We wish to make it a day of fun and
fellowship, what the Moose is all about.
Rides that we hope to do this year include the Traveling
Trophy ride in June, in which the Lewistown Moose regained the trophy
last year. We look to defend our accomplishment and raise even more
money for the charities this year. Those that can attend can join in on
the Loom-a-tic ride sponsored by our fellow Huntingdon Moose Riders.
There will be the Ride-4-Kids ride to raise money for the kids at
Mooseheart. A ride to Ocean City bike week in September…and many
more. We are hoping to do more riding this year even if it is just taking
off an evening for a ride to a local restaurant or ‘quick’ spin. Watch for
sign-up sheets and notifications of rides to come.
Of course we can’t forget the great support we get from our
own members. Last year we decided to continue Thursday “Wing
Nights” and it has proven to be a success. We have had great turn outs
all summer and winter and it has proven to be a great year round event.
We are even contemplating making it an “all you can eat” night. Let us
know your thoughts, maybe it would give us that push to pack the
The new liquor pourers that the Moose Riders have donated to
the lodge are finally here. After a long wait on backordered they have
finally come and preparations are under way to update the liquor stands
to a new and existing pouring system. Stay tuned to see them,
hopefully they become a conversation piece.
Mark it on your calendar for the Moose Riders State Rally. It is
being held in Curwensville, PA at the Curwensville Lodge # 268 and will
hopefully be a great turn out. Everyone said they had a great time at
our Moose last year and couldn’t wait until next year. The Curwensville
Moose has a great venue and onsite campground if you just want to
hang around the Moose all Rally weekend. Hope to see you there. Make
sure you get your registrations in and reservations made for your
accommodations. The weekend is August 19th, 20th and 21st. Watch our
lodge for State Rally Tickets to get your chance to win some big bucks!
I want to wish everyone to have a safe and fun packed
summer. Enjoy as many functions as you can at the Moose Lodge and
especially those Moose Rider functions. Be sure to come down to the
Moose any chance that you can. There are many new and exciting
things going on at the lodge. You will notice many “face-lift” items to
make the lodge nicer and more attractive. Thank you and talk to you
again in the Fall. Be safe, keep the rubber on the road and throttle to
the floor.

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.

These activities range from weekly entertainment from some of the best bands in the area on Saturdays for the adults to Halloween, Christmas and Easter parties for the children. Oh yes, don't forget the annual picnic.
