I’m a couple of months into the job and still have a ways to go in making things better. I have been working hard with the Officers and House Committees to address many issues that have been troubling the Lodge for many months. Taxes, IRS, the roof, heating units, and just getting up to speed have taken some time. I believe those things are behind me. I’m back to working on food menus and pricing, beverage pricing, and renting the hall.
Sis and I have started working on the menu and have already added items such as nachos, poppers, mini tacos, southwest egg rolls and more. The Thursday chicken dinner is back and looking food. If it’s your birthday during the month, come in on the 3rd Thursday of the month and enjoy the buffet for free. Starting in May, we will not be having the Friday night buffet, but instead will be having a Friday/Saturday night dinner platter special. To see more about the food specials join us on Facebook, www.facebook.com/frederickmoose.lodge and the website http://lodge371.moosepages.org/, we are posting lunch specials and dinner specials each week.
Also in May, we will be adding a few monthly drawings. We will add a $5 dollar monthly drawing to be held on the 3rd Thursday of each month. We will also add a 50/50/ drawing to be held on the 1st Thursday of each month. (1 ticket for $5, 4 tickets for $10 or 10 tickets for $20.)
I’m working establishing a Corn Hole League and it looks like we can get started on May 8. This will be a Thursday league out by the pavilion. I am also working with Moose International to hold a Regional Corn Hole tournament. We hope to hold that event the last weekend in July.
We are looking at the possibility of adding a new jar for the bar area. This would be a $1 game, larger than our current “Moose” jar. This jar will have an unlimited progressive jackpot and 2 chances to win the progressive in each jar. More details will be out in a few weeks.
If you have any questions or suggestions just contact me, I’d love to hear from you!
