Sellersville Moose Family Center #1539 Women of the Moose Chapter #471 Serving our Members and Community How to Get the News! The board hopes that most of our members have logged onto our web site (www.sellersvillemoose.com). We have had a lot of positive feedback. The site has been up and running (no pun intended) since our last newsletter. When you see all of the information that is available to you 24/7, we think you will like having instant access to what is going on in our lodge. The board feels that this is the best way to keep our members informed and up to date. You can see any changes as soon as they are made. Your input about the site is important to the board. We cannot make the site better, more user friendly, or informative without your help. Please contact us with suggestions. One of the ways you can help the lodge is by printing your own newsletter if you have access to a computer. This would help the lodge save money. Printing and mailing almost 2,000 copies of the newsletter is very costly. We are asking members who have access to the internet to opt not to receive a printed newsletter. The complete newsletter will be posted on the web site. This has some advantages for you: 1. You will see the newsletter as soon as it is finished. 2. You can print out the entire newsletter or any part of the newsletter that you need. 3. You can review the newsletter periodically to see any last minute changes to the schedule of events at the lodge. In this issue you will find a cutout to send back to the lodge. Please return promptly with your decision. Thank You, The Board Sellersville Moose #1539 I (name)__________________________________, give permission to remove my name from the mailing list. I DO NOT want to receive a printed copy of the MOOSE NEWSLETTER. BRING THIS TEAROFF OR MAIL IT TO THE LODGE A Message from the Governor Brothers, Ladies and Co Workers, The year appears to be moving entirely too fast. Here it is May already. We will be serving our Mothers Day Dinner on the 11th. We will once again have our three settings at 12, at 2, and 4 P.M. The signup sheets are at the bar and we ask you to pay for your tickets when you sign up. The Moose Legion will have their breakfast on Sunday May 18th from 9 to 12 noon. Once again they will have eggs to order as well as the normal buffet. Please come out and support this event. The new officers will begin serving their terms on May 1st. Check the board by the door and see who they are. You may want to wish them well. The lodge is sponsoring a bus trip to Mooseheart in October for PMA day. If you have never been to Mooseheart, here is a wonderful opportunity to visit and see how your endowment money is spent. There are flyers in the lodge advertising this trip. We will be holding the annual lodge picnic in June. Check the calendar for the time and date. We have ordered a new speaker system for the lodge and by the time you read this it will have been installed. We are planning several fund raising events over the next few months, to rebuild our cash on hand. Replacing the roof was quite expensive. Thank you for supporting your lodge in the coming months. Fraternally yours, Charles E Staley Governor Administrator’s Message Spring is here and our new summer menu will be starting within the next week or so. Our Chef’s Corner both in the newsletter and also on the web will be bringing you suggestions for your back yard BBQ’S. In the Chef’s Corner on the web you will be able to get coupons for dinner specials and Moose Soup to go. The moose web site is there as an extension of our newsletter and is not going to replace the newsletter. But if there are members that would like to just have the ability to go online and print only the pages they want, they can. It will save the lodge money and it is faster than waiting for the mail. Remember the address is www.sellersvillemoose.com. This month’s user name is moose and the password is still five. I would like to again thank the R.A.C for the new TV in the social quarters. This group of guys is just the best. Their support of this lodge has gotten us where we are today. There will be upcoming town hall meetings in regard to dues and other issues within the lodge. Please watch the board for times and dates. This is where both men and women can be heard by the board members of both organizations. Please attend at least one a year. In closing, I wish all a very happy and safe summer. Please share your thoughts with us on how Sellersville Moose Family Center can be the best in this Fraternity. Fraternally yours, Phillip Febus Administrator Women of the Moose News Message from the Senior Regent Chapter 471 Dear Co workers, Spring has Sprung for us all. As the Chapter’s newly elected Senor Regent along with the new officers it will be an honor to serve you in the forthcoming year. I trust we will all work to ensure we have a successful and wonderful year. Our Chapter Meetings are held on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month. Start time of 7:30 PM. The officers and my self would welcome your presence at these meetings, so you can see how the Chapter operates. This is an opportunity for all Co Workers to offer suggestions, ideas and comments.

Sherrie and I would like to thank all those who assisted in making the Easter Egg Hunt a hit for the 100 plus kids who attended. A great time was had by all.
