Serving our Members and Community
How to Get the News!
The board hopes that most of our members have logged onto our web site
( 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
Thank You,

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
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,

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 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
