West Nashville
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 has 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.

 BROTHERS AND LADIES

We do not or need to part our vehicles on the West side of our building.  

This is not only an inconvenience to people coming in and going out, 

but it is also a VIOLATION of our fire code.  

If you keep parting there, the fine will be yours to ooooo p< p>a

Thanks for your effort and cooperation on this matter.

GIMMIE 5 CHAIRMAN
Hello, I am Bob Spingler, West Nashville Gimme 5 Chairman.

I am sure that by now you have heard or read in your Moose magazine the facts about the Gimme 5 Program for the Moose.

We the Moose stand for kids and our seniors that was one of the precepts we all committed to when we joined the Moose.

We are in need of your help!  We are all facing the rising costs of fuel, utilities, food, and much more, so too is the Moose.  The long winter nights in the Chicago area takes toll on our budget.

The current program is asking that you set aside .05 cents in the morning and .05 cents at night each day or $26.50 a year for the next five years.  These funds will not be spent on current operations, but as a buffer to continue our support of our kids and seniors in years to come.  The total five year tax deductible contribution of $182.50 from all members of the Moose will achieve that goal.

I am asking you to do a few things now.  First, those with access to a computer, go on line to the following Internet pages and see what is going on in the Moose, http://www.mooseintl.org  or http://www.moosecharities.org  and read the stories of our beloved Mooseheart and Moosehaven.  

While you are there please make your first year donations of $36.50 or more to help our cause.  You can also mail your check to Moose Charities.

We will also try to have some small fund raisers at the Lodge in the future, we hop you will participate.  

I would like to sometime in the future have a day at the Lodge so I can explain the total program to those that are interested.  Also any questions may be addressed to Lodge221@mooseunits.org and we will answer them.

Please if you can, help us reach our Lodge goal.

 
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!
