Message from the 202 Secretary – Gerry Ricke
.There will be a Moose Legion Educational Class on March 12th at Lake Pan 1179. Registration starts at 8am and class starts at 9am. The class can go well into the afternoon. Cypress pays the $35 registration fee for all 202 members. Just another way Cypress supports the Lodge Moose Legion Committees. Please let your Assistant Secretary know if you plan to attend. The class is for ANY Moose Legionnaire, but those aspiring to be a director must have the class every 2 years.
A challenge to all Lodge Moose Legion Committees to sell more Celebration Tickets than Golden Triangle 874 (32 Moose Legionnaires) has been accepted by Zephyrhills 2276 (190 Moose Legionnaires). This looks like it will turn out to be the classic “David and Goliath” scenario.
Thanks to all the Lodge Moose Legion Committees for doing “Booster” Lodge Sponsorship Boards and selling those Moose Legion Tickets. The Super Sponsor list has been updated to insure accuracy by Financial Director Terry Crislip and Jane Ellis. Thanks Terry and Jane!
Cypress supports the individual LMLC’s in numerous ways. Cypress has paid all the LMLC’s share of the 2015-16 Mooseheart Camp Ross repairs assessment of $2455.75, the Youth Awareness Scholarship assessment of $517.00, and the Presidents Project assessment of $202. Cypress picks up the enrollment fee of $10 for each candidate which adds up if we meet our quota of 135. Beverages paid for by Cypress help promote celebration pre-registration and meeting attendance. Cypress assists the LMLC obligation for endowment which will be $5555.64 for this year.
Just reminders as we pre-register for Golden Triangle, I have a LEESBURG address, please check the pre-registration form. Also please ensure that you have all the correct information on your envelope, adequate postage, as well as a return address. I have also added “email verification” to the pre-registration form. If you include your email on that form, I will email you that I have received your pre-registration. If you have mailed your pre-registration and not received email verification within a week of dropping it into the mail please email me. The deadline is NINE CALENDAR DAYS before the celebration to MAIL the pre-registration form. If you miss the USPS deadline, please EMAIL me your info and I will pre-register you as C.O.D. and collect your money at the registration table.
Pre-registrations are easier everyone to have things ready in advance and makes for a smoother registration process. Less waiting in line means more time for FUN!!! PLUS, you save $16 per couple by pre-registering.
As you sign new members please include a legible name and Moose ID #. Please make sure they have met the eligibility requirements of 6 months as a lodge member or have signed one member into the lodge. In your retention efforts remember once a Moose Legionnaire, always a Moose Legionnaire. Don’t forget to contact me if you retain a member.
Ain’t it great to be a proud Moose Legionnaire!
