Myrtle Casey Senior Luncheon”
NEXT: 19th October
The Social Quarters saw 53 seniors attend last month. If you chose to eat somewhere else, you missed a great meal and fellowship. You do not have to be a senior to join us and eat!
I want to “Thank” all our volunteers who are working at the Queen of Hearts“. The Jackpot is growing weekly, so come on out – every Monday, with tickets on sale from 5pm-7pm. We are still giving away two (2) 50/50s Jackpots, Moose Bucks, and two Wednesday or Friday Night Dinners.

In other news as of right now we are 3rd in state for number of applications turned in and enrolled for this year’s campaign. Keep up the good work and maybe we can make it to 1st place by April.

Well, the plumbing in the men's bathroom is complete, new fixtures and tile have been installed. We are now on the final stage of the plumbing renovation. The line that extends from the bathrooms to the sewer is now being unearthed and will be replaced. While this project is going on, there will be times where the front lobby and entrance will be closed. The flooring in the lobby will have to be dug up, in order to expose and replace the piping. We will keep you posted of closure dates. There has also been a water line break, in the line that extends to the pool house. The water has been cut off and this project will begin once the current one is finished.
Now a few words about the kitchen, the last thing anyone on that staff wants, is for your meal not be well prepared and to your liking. The staff meets regularly to go over new menu ideas and better ways to prepare and serve our Wednesday and Friday night dinners. Take a moment to look at a menu from other lodges and you will find ONE entree only, compared to our 3 or 4. Please understand we are not running as a 5-star restaurant, nor are we charging 5-star prices. However, we want you to have an enjoyable dining experience, and we thank you for choosing to dine with us. Thank you for your patience while we strive to get it right. Comment cards are available at the front desk.
Lastly, it was decided that members wishing to hold parties in the game room/pool house/social quarters, and requesting food to be provided, will be responsible for the food cost, as well as a charge for kitchen staff. For example: a birthday party in the game room, where you would like the lodge to do chicken tenders, fries etc, would require one employee for 3hrs. minimum, x $12hr. These fees would be discussed and agreed upon prior to the event. For more information, contact the office 804-458-1755
Quarter BINGO, visit the Colonial Heights Moose Lodge for details.
It is with much pleasure that I would like to congratulate our brother, Troy King as the newest Territory Manager for Eastern Virginia . As one of Moose Internationals newest employees, you may see a little less of him around our lodge, but just know that he is now doing the good work for us and the rest of his territory.
Good job Troy and congratulations.

The Hopewell Moose Lodge, 2nd Annual Car & Bike show was another great success. With the assistance of our host, The Southern Knight Cruisers, our car show was an even bigger success than last year. With approximately 100 beautiful cars, bikes & trucks, more vendors & even more participants this year we have grown another great event.
With the help of the volunteers of the LOOM, WOTM, Moose Legion & our host, the Southern Knight Cruisers, we were able to raise $? to benefit our soldiers and their families through the Holiday Helpers Association at Fort Lee.
This was a wonderful event that was open to the public as another opportunity to showcase our lodge, our home, and our Moose family. All while supporting those that give so much.
The Holiday Helper Association strives to ensure the holiday season for wounded warriors and nominated military members facing difficult times is a memorable one by allowing them to shop at the Fort Lee Holiday Helper toy store free of charge. We also offer food vouchers to assist with their family meal, stocking stuffers, hats and mittens, homemade infant blankets, books, puzzles, a live tree if needed and so much more.
VMA Membership Campaign
for 2017 - 2018
Written by Calvin Green
Published: 01 May 2017
Supporting members is something that has always been important to the Moose. So, it is no surprise that our newest Virginia initiative, the "VMA Membership Campaign" program, has drawn so much interest from Loyal Order of Moose members.
The focus of this program is on recognizing the support of members within our state with an emphasis on their ongoing work to sign up quality new members and re-enrollment of great former members. Our new VMA Membership Campaign starts on May 1, 2017 and runs until April 30, 2018. Just pointing out the highlights of this program year's campaign you can receive one year's free dues, earn a "Super Sponsor" shirt, and take part in winning $2,500 in cash prizes. And, District Presidents not to be left out, you can win one year's free membership and be included in the drawings for the $2,500, if you have a plus membership within your district.

our very own,
Lodgic is an ambitious new plan to do more of what the Moose has been doing since 1888. We’re the Moose Lodge, a.k.a. the Loyal Order of Moose. We’re one of the original fraternal service organizations that shaped the 20th century in America, and we were doing great things long before Fred and Barney joined Bedrock’s Water Buffalo Lodge.
We’ve been supporting communities, inspiring working families, and caring for at-risk children for more than 100 years. Lodgic is an all-new way for a new generation to do the timelessly good things we've always stood for — to work hard, take care of each other, and have fun.
We can’t wait to begin making new friends in Champaign and other cities soon!
Fellowship Degree of Honor
A Fellow is someone who has been a leader and is now often an all-important mentor to newer members, helping guide them along a fraternal leadership path towards enhancing our existing programs. They continue to serve in various ways to keep their fraternal units strong, often through positive efforts in membership recruitment and retention.
Membership is generally comprised of those who take an active role in building membership, serving on committees and volunteering their time & talents in service to Moose programs. Those who serve as Chairmen of various committees and as officers in the: lodge, Moose Legion, district and associations are most often recognized and recommended for advancement.
The Committee, which is comprised of current Pilgrims and Fellows, met last fall to select the most qualified Moose Legionnaire for such a great honor. For 2017, the Hopewell Moose Lodge Fellowship Committee selected Gerry Mastrovito. Gerry has proven himself over the years by taking on the toughest positions in the lodge, serving with distinction, never faltering, increasing membership and volunteering at every opportunity.
The Fellowship Committee looks forward to Gerry taking on bigger and better things in the lodge, stepping up to serve on more committees, volunteering more of his time, mentoring members to take his position, while he continues to excel in the Moose. We are sure he will make us proud.
Congratulation to Gerry Mastrovito for earning your Fellowship Degree of Honor.
College of Regents
Special congratulations go out to Lynetta R. Parrish for earning her "College Of Regents" degree during the International Moose Conference held last month in Tampa, Florida. Thank you for your contributions to our Chapter and to Mooseheart & Moosehaven.
