Brothers and Sisters,
February is upon us. Monday meals are back up and running thanks to great volunteers who step up and make sure there is something available to our members.
We had our special meeting to discuss purchasing a digital sign for the outside to let people who drive by know what is happening at our lodge. A lot of good discussion was had and in the end it was voted favorably to purchase the digital board. Thank you to the members who were in attendance to help with that decision. The Board’s function on is to bring ideas like this and member’s ideas to the floor meeting to be voted on by the membership. The final decision is up to the members, not the board. I encourage members to go to the meetings because you have the power to vote in or vote out ideas that the Board brings to the floor meeting for a vote. When a door closes a new door opens. Bruce Helberg is stepping down as administrator to pursue an opportunity that he told me “was too good to turn down”. I want to take this opportunity to personally say thank you Bruce, thank you for your dedication to the moose. The long hours and the work that goes on behind the scenes, goes unnoticed a lot of times. Your presence as administrator will be greatly missed. I wish you and Kimy the best of luck in the opportunity that lies ahead. And with that a new door opens. Mike Hughes has been selected as the new Moose Lodge Administrator. I look forward to working with Mike and hearing his ideas. His enthusiasm and dedication is going to be a great asset for the moose. Welcome aboard Mike. It’s never too early to start thinking about the election of officers. Nominations for new board members will be starting before you know it. If you are interested in helping the lodge by volunteering to serve as an officer speak with one of the current board members for information or questions. Stay warm and support your lodge.
Your humble Governor, Ben Adkison
Message From Your Senior Regent
February is upon us, and it is time to think about running for office. If you are interested, please write your name, the office you would like to run for and the date on a piece of paper. Put it in the box on the wall by the Women’s Office (to the North of the office by the hall), or hand it to any officer.
The first Nomination Committee meeting will be the 1st of February at 6:15, the 2nd will by the 15th of February at 6:15 and the 3rd on the 20th after Queen of Hearts. We need all offices filled, so please, if you are interested, put your name in.
I would like to thank Mary Hunt for cleaning out the Ladies Shed and getting all of the stuff out of the back shed. Thank you sooo much Mary. You are greatly appreciated.
“In February there is everything to hope for and nothing to regret”
Happy Valentine’s Day
Sr. Regent, Chapter #1133

We will be meeting on February 18th at 2pm. We will be showing some video’s including one from Mooseheart and one from Moosehaven; this will give everyone a chance to learn more about what the Lodge is all about, please bring your spouse, your children or even a friend. There will be some food and refreshment served after the orientation. Hope to see you all there.

Letter from the Administrator
Hello Fellow Members,
As most of you have heard, I have been selected as the new administrator for the Cheyenne Moose Lodge. I am very excited for this new opportunity and will work very hard to make OUR lodge the very best. The next few months will be a huge learning experience but with help from all of you I have total confidence that the Lodge will be back to what it once was. I would like to thank Bruce Helberg for the training and knowledge that he is leaving behind with me for an easy transition. I would like to thank the board for giving me this opportunity as well and I can’t wait for the challenges in the future. I invite all member to come out and support our Lodge as we have plenty of dinners and fun activities planned for the future.
