Governor’s Message
FROM THE GOVERNOR
TROY KING
October was a very busy month. I would like to thank Brian Carpenter for
bring in a Comedy Show, Julie and Darrel Johnson for chairing the Annual
Hopewell Moose Halloween party, Oktoberfest thanks to the Kitchen crew
and the VMA Pool Tournament thanks to all our members who helped
make this a success. Our lodge only succeeds with the support of all its
members. I cannot say that enough for making my first six month such a
success.The first week of November is dedicated to Membership Retention. To celebrate the
Moose Legion is sponsoring a “Get Acquainted” gather in the Ballroom on the 6th immediately
following the LOOM meeting. This will take the place of the normal Moose Legion meeting for
all LOOM members. Each new Moose Legionnaire will go through their conferral followed by a
small buffet. I am inviting all Fellow’s and Pilgrim’s to attend dress in their appropriate Fraternal
Jacket. This is open to all LOOM member and I encourage you all to stop by. Each member
that signs up a LOOM member on the 5th and/or 7th dinner from 5:30-8:00pm will receive a
free dinner and two drink chips from the bar. On the 8th at 1200 in the office I am asking each
Fellow and Pilgrim to join me in contacting the entire expired membership list for the month of
October and encourage them to renew their membership.
Let’s make November a banner month for Membership. If you want to get involved and make a
change in the Lodge, please join me on the 1st and 3rd Thursday of the month at 7pm in the ballroom. Volunteers are always welcome with plenty to do around the lodge.

ENTERTAINMENT
Entertainment Committee
Autumn is upon us and we have the frosty mornings, fall colors and falling leaves to prove it. Don’t
forget the shorter days and long, long nights. No
need to stay home wishing there was something to
do on those long nights, because there is. We are
having fun at the Hopewell Moose Lodge every
night of the week! Sunday and Tuesday nights are
Bingo nights. On Mondays, don’t forget the Queen
of Hearts drawing. The jackpot is growing and you
may as well be the winner! Wednesday and Friday
nights we offer fine meals and DJ entertainment for
your dancing and listening pleasure. The second
and fourth Thursday nights we have Trivia Night in
the Social Quarters to test your knowledge as well
as entertain and compete against your friends for
prizes. Check the calendar to find out which Saturdays we are having “All Karaoke Night.”
There is never a cover charge for any of our Social
Quarters Events!
We also have Ballroom events planned for the upcoming months. Advanced tickets are available for
ballroom events by calling the office and you can
reserve your favorite seats and tables at no additional cost. The ballroom seating chart is on our
website www.hopewellmooselodge.com, on the
entertainment page. Everyone come out for lots of
fun, great food, dancing and listening pleasure with
all your best friends.
Any last minute additions or corrections to the
calendar that miss the deadline for the newsletter
or www.hopewellmooselodge.com posting will be
posted on our Hopewell Moose Facebook page.

to “show their stuff.” The bar will be open and
food will be available. There is no cover charge

Nov 21- Jim Quick and the “COASTLINE
BAND” will return to the ballroom. Jim has
won the “Entertainer of the Year Award” for
the past 12 consecutive years, and guess what?
He is nominated for the “Entertainer of the
Year Award” again this year. He and his band
members are nominated for 7 other prestigious
awards. They play a blend of Beach, Country
and Southern Soul music. We may get the treat
of hearing a couple of “King Tyrone and the
Graveyard Ramblers” songs. BYOB. Come join
the Coastline Crazies for a night of FUN!!!
Dec 5- THE JANITORS from Virginia Beach will
take the stage. THE JANITORS emit an energy
level and sonic fullness that rivals larger bands.
Their tight blend of Rhythm and Blues, 60’s Soul,
70’s Funk, Country, and current Top 40 Dance
keeps people of all ages dancing from the first
note ‘til the last. BYOB.
Dec 20- The Women of the Moose will host a
special Christmas Dance featuring “THE ANTIQUES.” They are a local favorite that plays
the best of old time Country Music. This is sure
to be a special evening of dancing and listening
to the music we have loved for many years.
BYOB.
Dec 31- We will ring out 2014 and the new
year in with the sounds of our own Darrell
Johnson and his “VERTIGO BAND.” They perform a big variety of music that is sure to please
everyone. This special evening will begin with
the band starting the party at 8, and a champagne toast and a buffet breakfast that will follow shortly after the New Year has been rung
in.

Veterans’ Day
November 11, 2014
Tuesday, November 11th, is Veterans’
Day; a day we honor all veterans of all branches
of the armed services.
Please take a moment to stop and thank the
veterans for all they have done for the United
States of America and for the freedom we sometimes take for granted. The men and women who
have given so much and asked so little in return.
On November 11th thank all the veterans of
all the past wars and conflicts they served in and all
the young men and women serving their country
today.
Keep in mind – Real heroes do not wear a
cape and mask, They wear combat boots and
dog tags!
From the Officers and Staff of Hopewell Moose
Family Center
THANK YOU VETERANS!!!
November Dinner Specials
Senior Luncheon
On October 16th we had a total of 22 seniors who

our luncheon. And you cannot beat the price!
Come out and join us for fun, good food, and fellowship the third Thursday of each month at
12noon. A door prize is drawn during each event;
the winner for October was Charlie Kemp. Our
next luncheon will be held on Thursday, November
