Moose Lodge 2221
Campers and Members
 Parking New Policy
Effective 1/1/12

Due to the limited parking and the increased liability on the Lodge, the Board of Officers have decided to limit the time that campers and other types of personal vehicles can stay on Lodge property to fourteen days (2 weeks).  We regret having to take this action but felt is in best interest for all our members and our Lodge.

 

 

Notice:  Due to safety and health
department regulations pets are to remain outside of the Lodge away from entry doors.  Dogs should be kept on a leash in the rear or to the side of the Lodge.  Service dogs are allowed indoors with their owners.

Also, the Board wants to keep a safe, friendly environment for our family members and children.  Please be mindful of others with your language in the social quarters.  We ask that parents keep control of their children while in the Lodge.  

Starting November 1st children are to leave the Lodge by 9 pm Sunday - Thursday and by 10 pm Friday and Saturday unless there is a social event going on.  Then they must leave soon as the event is over.

THE PURPOSE OF 
YOUR
MOOSE LODGE  

 

THE PURPOSE OF MOOSEHEART 
  THE CHILD CITY

   

The purpose of your Moose Lodge is not operating your social quarters.  Your social quarters are a privilege of membership.  The purpose of your Moose Lodge is Mooseheart - the Child City, Moosehaven - the City of Contentment and Community services, "The Heart of the Community".  Our core community service projects are:  Safe Surfing, Special Olympics, Tommy Moose and Youth Awareness.

  See our next newsletter for details about one of these projects.

 

 

Do you know when you joined the Moose Fraternity that YOU became a Dad or Mom or Grandparent to approximately 250 children residing at Mooseheart?  Do you know when you joined the Moose that YOU accepted part of the responsibility to feed, clothe, house and educate these 250 children?  This is THE PURPOSE for YOUR Lodge to exist.  Please ask about the Endowment Fund. 


More details in your newsletter.

In Memory of Bob Spingler

Written by Larry Mullens,
Past Governor and Moose Charities Chairman

 

Bob served his country in the United States Navy and is an honored Veteran. Bob and Nancy Spingler were previous members of the Moose Lodge in Waverly, New York.  Bob was a Past Governor of the Waverly, NY Lodge.
 

Bob was a Comptroller for Ingersol-Rand and was transferred to Tennessee to a Corporate Office near Hendersonville.
 

Bob and Nancy found West Nashville Moose Lodge and became active in our Lodge and transferred his membership to Lodge 2221. He joined the Ritual Staff and was an excellent Ritualist.
 

Bob served on our Lodge Board of Officers in several offices and was the chairman of our Audit Committee for many years.
 

Bob was a Loyal Moose, a Moose Legionnaire, he held the Fellowship Degree of Honor and was honored with the Pilgrim Degree of Merit
 

Bob Spingler was a leader, a mentor, a teacher, a trainer and a friend.


When Bob retired from Ingersol-Rand he used his accounting skills to help all Tennessee and Kentucky Moose Lodges and WOTM Chapters with their bookkeeping problems. 

He taught classes in Lodge Leadership Officer Training and Social Quarters Management and Lodge Committee duties.  He taught Lodge Administrator classes and 2-HOTT classes.
 

Bob was elected to serve as President of the Tennessee Moose Association and held all Offices of the Executive Committee.  He also served as Secretary of the Tennessee Moose Association for nine years.
 

Bob served on the Moose International level as a member of the  Mooseheart Board of Directors, the Moosehaven Board of Directors and the Moose Charities Board.  When Bob passed he was serving on the Moose International Supreme Council.
 

Bob Spingler was respected, admired and loved by many Moose members and friends and associates. I had the privilege to know and associate and work with Bob Spingler.  
 

May you rest in peace my friend and Moose Brother. 

 

 

 
  I will be writing articles about several other West Nashville Moose Lodge outstanding Officers and Leaders,  so our Members can learn some of the history and know who made our Moose Lodge 2221 possible. May you enjoy and learn from  these articles

GOOD SEARCH
What if Mooseheart or Moosehaven earned a penny every time you searched the Internet?  Or how about if a percentage of every purchase you made online went to support our cause?  Well, now it can!

GoodSearch.com is a new Yahoo-powered search engine that donates half of its advertising revenue, about a penny per search, to the charities its users designate.  Use it just as you would any search engine, get quality search results from Yahoo and watch the donations add up!  The more people who use this size, the more money that goes to our children and seniors.

GoodShop.com is a new online shopping mall that donates up to 37 percent of each purchase to your favorite cause!  Hundreds of great stores including Amazon, Target, Gap, Best Buy, eBay, Macys and Barnes & Nobel have teamed up with Good Shop and every time you place an order, you'll be supporting your favorite cause.

There is a website: http://www.goodsearch.com that will donate to your selected charity, Moose International.  You can even put it on your toolbar so it's the same place your current search engine is located.  Why not donate ever time you search for something on the Internet?  It will only cost you the time to install the search engine.  The directions are very easy to follow, so go to http://www.goodsearch.com now.  After you install Goodsearch, don't forget to install the toolbar so it's always on your page on top. 

You can always check out the website and see how much we got donated to Moose International.  The site is Goodsearch.com.  If you have another charity you think would be good for this program, just let them know.  Year to date $44.77, based on 100 people doing 2 searches a day is $750.  Shopping $500 a year, donate 3% equals a total donation of $2,230.  There are only 73 supporters, let's spread the word.  The West Nashville Moose can make a difference if we try

GOD BLESS YOU!
