ANTLERS & TALES Loyal Order Of Moose Louisville Lodge #5 Family Center 502-499-8875 WWW.MOOSELODGE5.COM 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! Paul Eskew, Governor FEBRUARY & MARCH 2015 Governor: PAUL ESKEW Senior Regent: KELLY HAMSLEY KELLY’S KORNER 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!

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.
