ESKEW’S ESSAY
Congratulations, Jim Galloway, for winning the $50
Thornton’s gift card in our membership drive!
We want to let you know of some changes that the Board
is considering. For the last several years, we have seen a
steady decrease in attendance for the live music nights.
While Wednesdays remain relatively strong, Fridays and
Saturdays have declined considerably. We've tried a wide
range of entertainers and have seen no improvement. It has
become more difficult to warrant live entertainment three
nights a week. Therefore, the Board is considering the
elimination of either Friday or Saturday live music.
Sundays and Thursdays have always been the nights for
Karaoke, with Thursdays the better of the two. A suggestion
made by a couple of members was to move Karaoke from
Sunday to Saturday. Since a lot of our participants are still
of working age, it might be logical to have a Karaoke night out
without having to work the next day.
Ready for some good news? By the time that you read
this, the new carpet should be installed in our Lodge. We
were approved for the grant of almost $21,000 and this will
be a great start to renovating the Lodge. Hopefully, we will
have final plans for the lounge renovation at this time too.
The KY Singles Dance Club has signed a six month
contract for dances on Sunday nights. Their guests love our
ballroom and bar and several have become members.
We have also hosted the Louisville Poker Society. This
group wants to use our card and dining rooms for their
events. This has led to new and transferred members.
Just a reminder - Moose members are encouraged to
bring guests to our Lodge for fun and entertainment. You may
bring the same guest two times to see the Lodge and enjoy
the activities. They must be signed in by the member and may
not make purchases. If the guest comes a third time, they
must join the Lodge. These are the rules set by Moose
International to satisfy our qualification as a “not for profit”
organization.
As a Board, we are committed to keeping your Lodge a
true destination place; a place where members are
comfortable and safe, can enjoy themselves and feel as
though they have ownership. We are constantly trying new
activities and we welcome your suggestions. There is a
suggestion box in the hallway, or you can come to our monthly
Lodge meeting every third Tuesday. Suggestions should
include current members and their guests, what day for the
activity and the name of who would oversee the event. I will
also take suggestions via e-mail [email protected]
Thank you!

Happy New Year to all of you!
I sure love this Lodge and Chapter of ours. I have met so
many interesting people from all walks of life. Each of you
have something to contribute and continue to do so, whether
it be volunteering, increasing and maintaining membership,
attending meetings, being a committee chairman, planning or
donating to fundraising efforts. THANK YOU!
WOW! December was a busy month! First, I want to thank
everyone who came out to help decorate the Lodge for
Christmas. It looked great as usual. The Children’s Christmas
Party was wonderful. I want to send a huge THANK YOU to
everyone who helped. And thank you, Santa Claus, for taking
time to stop by. It wouldn’t be Christmas without you.
The Mitten Tree was a giant success. Thank you to everyone
who donated money or items. Because of you, we helped the
children at Mooseheart stay warm this winter. Thank
you, Barbara and Jerry Russell, for delivering the items.
Also, congratulations to Barbara Russell, who was the winner
of the bracelet for our Membership Drive!
Nominations and elections of WOTM Board of Officers for
2015-2016 are on the horizon. Please consider submitting
your name for one of these positions - Senior Regent, Junior
Regent, Secretary/Treasurer, or Recorder. Your Board of
Officers is necessary for the Chapter to continue. If you are
considering one of the four positions or want to nominate
someone who you think will be an asset to the continued
success of this Chapter, please contact any of the current
Board members. We will be holding three nomination
committee meetings in February, elections in March, and
installation in April. Check the calendar for dates and times.
It is important for all Moose members to be involved in our
Lodge and Chapter. If you have not been involved in the
organization and would like to do so, come to a meeting. That’s
a great place to start. It’s also a place to meet people and
make new friends. If meetings aren’t your thing, you can still
volunteer to help. “Nobody can do everything, but everyone
can do something.”
YOU CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE!!!
See you all at the Lodge!
Kelly Hamsley, Senior Regent

WOTM SUNDAY DINNERS:
The Alexander Steak Dinners have been a excellent addition to our dinner
menu for three years now, but they have decided that they need a break.
So, February 8th will be their last dinner. We want to thank Carl and
Chrissi and their family for giving of their time and energy to bring such a
wonderful dinner. We hope that you will let them know how much you
have enjoyed it as well.
That being said, we need people to help us with the dinners. First and
second Sundays are offered as a fundraiser for the Women of the Moose
and we need volunteers to make that happen. Would you be interested in
helping us one Sunday of the month to serve dinners to your friends and
family? Please speak to one of our officers and answer any questions you
may have.
St Patrick’s Day is Tuesday, March 17 and we are having a party in the
ballroom! This has been a special event for the Moose since we’ve been
around and usually a real hoot. Doors open at 5 pm with $6.00 admission.
Dinner is 5:30 to 7:30 pm with corn beef or ham dinner plates for $5.00.
Ricky Powell and the Sax Man will entertain us for dancing, with some
special St Pat’s theme songs. Drink specials by Shane all night long. So,
PUT ON THE GREEN and join in the fun!
See you at the Moose! Keep dancing!

TOP GUN POKER
PINOCHLE
We have a poker tournament at the Lodge every Friday and Sunday
evening. This is an enjoyable and inexpensive way to spend an evening
with your friends at the Lodge and a great opportunity to meet other
members. Come out and join us. You might win, but we know you will
have a good time. On Friday and Sunday, the tournaments start at 6:30 pm
and end at 9:30 pm. Recent winners include Rick Rachford, Sue O’Bryan,
Kelly Hamsley, Bobby Crabb, Annette Slayton, Brenda Hendren, Linda
Nason and Chrissi Alexander.
The pinochle group has been meeting since 1984. Frank & Lois Howell
and Dave & Evelyn Wild were part of the original group to help set up
each week. Many of you may recognize Lois Howell from the poker
games and Evelyn Wild still plays pinochle each week. The group meets
for a tournament on the second and fourth Fridays of the month and would
love to have people come play. They also meet every Sunday afternoon at
2:00 pm, which is a good time to meet the members and if you are a beginner, learn to play. Please come out and join them. Some recent winners
include Bob Baechle, Junie Whitworth, Ernie Batliner, Evelyn Wild,
Marva Rudolph and LaVerne Effinger.
KING OF THE MOOSE
We also have King of the Moose poker tournaments, which follow the
same rules as Texas Hold ‘Em. We play at 6:30 pm on the second, third
and fourth Wednesdays and every Saturday. You’ll see this on the
calendar as well. Recent winners include Kelly Hamsley, Trey Kamer, Pat
Hamsley, Gil Kaelin, Bobby Allen, Sam Brown and Denise Allen.
