Happy Mid Summer Marinette Moose Lodge Members!! Hope your summer is going well, relaxing, enjoying the weather and making memories!! As I write this, the electrical in the campground is hopefully coming to a completion and our electrical problems and upgrades are done. I personally would like to thank our volunteers for the work on the playground dismantle, and also the reconstructing of it. Huge Thanks to Dave Behrens for the heavy equipment and labor. Thank you to Lana Bero for arranging and helping to get the equipment!! Speaking of playground, I’ve been hearing let us do more for the children, I agree!! Tom and Lana have the Dale McDonald fishing tournament in the works, also children’s Olympics. WOTM have children’s bingo during family picnic, these are all excellent steps towards different functions to keep our youth busy. Have ideas please present them to the board. We have some busy weekends coming up, please keep a look out for an activity or event on our calendar that might interest you or your family. Car Show, Brisket Cook Off, Pajama Breakfast, Haunted House, and Fireworks just to name a couple off the top off my head. I know everybody hears me preach about this, but volunteers make this lodge run!! I would love to thank everybody that has stepped up in the last month and helped out in any sort of form! Our BAMSAR Fundraiser showed what this lodge is about with raising over $6000… Thank you Holly Schlaud for your huge heart for giving!! Another person that has stepped up with work inside the lodge and also his knowledge, Scott Hannon, Thank you! for all the help and advice in the last month. His heart is truly invested in our lodge!! To all our lodge crew…. Thank you also for all your hard work!! In these next couple months, my schedule is full, I took on some extra projects and work, but I made a promise to the membership and you have my commitment to help and run this lodge with our amazing board!! To all our members, please volunteer and help make our lodge a family fraternity that will be here a long time!! Without help we won’t exist. Also one last and important note…. please drive slow and safely through the campground and through the lodge parking lot, we have horseshoe leagues on Thursday nights, and we have children all the time playing in the playground and campground!! Stop for stop signs and slow down!!
Have a Great July, Donnie Lorenz (President)
