I would like to take this time to thank the Board of Directors, Appointed Chairmen, and all the volunteer’s for a job well done for the fiscal year 2021 – 2022.

Dear Members;


As of the time of this newsletter, it’s snowing here in Lynchburg. I hope everyone stayed warm and safe.

The convention in Norfolk was very good, with lots of current information and general laws reviewed.


I am proud to announce that Moose Lodge 715 won the Tommy Moose Auction this year, and a VMA board member will present this honor to our lodge at an upcoming membership meeting.

As many of you know, I underwent another surgery recently and am a little exhausted currently.

We have had a couple events lately and have many more planned for the “Season”.

Thanks to all that helped and participated to make these events successful.


I look forward to sharing the holiday season with all of our members and family's.

If there are any needs that you feel the Fraternity can assist with, please put it in writing and submit to any board member or leave a letter behind the bar.


Have a great month and do something good for somebody every day !!

THAT’S NOT MY JOB!

This is a story about four people named: Everybody. Somebody. Anybody and Nobody. There was an important job to be done and Everybody was sure that Somebody would do it. Anybody could have done it, but Nobody did it. Somebody got angry about that, because it was Everybody’s job. Everybody thought Anybody could do it, but Nobody realized that Everybody wouldn’t do it. It ended up that Everybody blamed Somebody when Nobody did what Anyboby could have done.

Dear Members;

I want to start by thanking the members that take time out of their schedules to attend our membership meetings; these meetings allow our members to stay informed of all the great things that our lodge has to offer and also gives you, the member, a chance to have a voice in activities at our lodge.

Remember that volunteers are always needed at the lodge.

And remember to:

I hope everyone has been able to find a cool place during this Virginia heatwave.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one that volunteered at the car show, what a great job by everyone. The show was a great success. I’m hoping the lodge will do another show in early fall, look for more information.

It’s great to See Everyone’s Faces Again!

July will be bringing lots of activities to our Lodge with the Moose Legion Car Show on July 24th including the Low Country Boil and Children ID kits, 50/50s and the cash giveaway for benefiting the animals in Campbell County.

With the 4th of July Holliday coming soon everyone please be safe and have a great time.

With the Covid restrictions slowly being lifted it nice to see some form of normalcy returning in our everyday lives.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Brother Jim Puckett for the outstanding job on the Facebook, Grover text message site and the lodge’s web page. Please everyone check it out.

Remember volunteers are always welcome and needed on committees or small everyday projects. And everyone that has volunteered a big THANK YOU!

Brothers and Sisters


There’s a lot of misinformation going around about the new meeting agendas. While there may be changes regarding the setup of the room there is still an opening and closing prayer as well as the 9 O’clock ceremony and endowment collection.

All of the usual business is still conducted. I wonder how many of those piping up actually attend meetings on a regular basis anyway? Maybe if more people would attend meetings they would be more informed to the actual facts instead of the gossip and word of mouth misinformation.


Our lodge is like a wagon. If too many people want a free ride and there’s no one left to pull it… we go nowhere.

Hope everyone is doing well and staying safe. Remember your mask and practice social distancing.


Also please remember when you sign a quest in, you are responsible for your guest.


Anything that guest does while here, you are responsible for. There have been guests that have been signed in and are not following rules. Their behavior while in the lodge reflects back on you and they, along with you can be barred.


We want to keep everyone safe and happy.


No dancing on the dance floor at this time due to the Covid. Please respect this, this is from the Governor of Virginia.


We still need volunteers at Bingo. If you can help on a Sunday or Wednesday please let me or Patty Bryant know.


Have a happy Valentine’s Day


Fraternally,

Your Governor Daniel Viar
