“Moscow Elks 249” up and running on Facebook

Thanks to Jerry Curtis and Bobbi Ross, we now have a new Facebook page!

Our Facebook page is called: “Moscow Elks 249” (no hashtag in front of the 249).  We do still have 3 old Facebook paes out there, but they do not work.

Please share our site with all the members on your contact list.

Bobbi and Jerry have put a few posts and pictures on the page already to get it started.  We will be using the page as an information page for all of our upcoming events and past parties, etc.   We will do our best to monitor the posts members share.  Per Elk’s guidelines, we will try to keep politics, religion, business, inapporpriate jokes and personal attacks off our site.

The current website “elks249.com” will remain as our main web page.  This will be the site where we can go to get the current lodge calendar, basic information about the lodge and other information about our lodge,its history and traditions.

From the Desk of the Secretary


 

Many of you received an e-mail from me giving information on special pricing for the October 19th Idaho Vandal Football

Homecoming game against Idaho State.  Tickets are only $20 and can be purchased at GOVANDALS.COM/TICKETS . Use the code “Elks”. If you are not getting emails from my office and would like to, please email your address to secretary@elks249.com.

We had our annual DDGER visit from our District DD, Bill Shields.  His visit went well and Bill was very complementary about the welcome he received and the condition and welcoming atmosphere of our  Lodge.  The fact that we had all our “ducks in a row” helped too!

As you can see from the accompanying articles, we are making a big attempt to have more things going on during the winter months.  With a membership of 400, we are constantly reminded that, even though a big part of our focus in on the golf course during the summer months, over half of our membership are not golfers and we must continue to
strive to offer events and activities for everyone!  So, we are doing our part and now you have to do your part by supporting the dinners and events coming up.  Taco Tuesday’s, Friday night steak/salmon dinners, Oktoberfest, Winetasting with other events to be announced— hopefully something for everyone.

If you ever have questions or suggestions, please do not hesitate to email me or call
the office at 208-882-2577.  If we don’t answer, leave a message and Barb or I will
get back with you.

Wayne Krauss,
Secretary, PER

Welcome to the Elks

Welcome to the Elks

Welcome to the Elks and I literally mean welcome “into” the Elks Lodge.

The chilled weather is a damper here of late but the Bar/Dining is still open for business.  Come on out and we will visit over that Bacon cheeseburger and a cocktail!!

It’s been a blessing to work these past 6 months and our future goal is to stay open throughout the winter months.  Your support is greatly appreciated.  My 1st challenge to you all is please RSVP for TACO TUESDAY night, which is the 8th of October, and bring a guest with you!  We intend to continue with further Tuesday night dinners as well as continuing our Friday night Steak/Salmon dinners.  This brings me to my 2nd challenge, please RSVP by 3pm on Fridays and don’t forget to bring a guest.

In closing, I remind you of our Craft Bazaar on Nov. 16th.  Tables are still available to sell your unique craft.

 

Cheers,
Bobbi Ross, Bar/Dining Mgr

Help Finding Past Facebook Administrators

Help Finding

Past Facebook Administrators

Help Sherlock Holmes find the past Facebook administrators.  We have a new FACEBOOK page being developed and need to remove the old sites as to not create confusion for our members as to which Facebook page should be used.  We currently have 3 sites we need to have the administrators remove before we can launch the new site.  They are: “Elks Golf Course”, “Moscow Elks Lodge”, and “Elks Lodge” for our youth organization.  If you are the administrator or know someone who was, please let us know by calling the lodge office.

Thank you,

New Moscow Elks Facebook Page

We are developing a NEW Facebook page in the next couple of weeks.  This page will be all about our lodge and its members.  Our Facebook page will include pictures and stories from events we have at the lodge.  We hope this site will become a useful resource for you to find out about upcoming events and lodge activities.  It will be a page where you can share your thoughts with fellow members.  It will also be a place where you can check out the fun things other members are doing.  Be on the lookout for an email telling you when the page is available.  We are really looking forward to having some fun with our new Facebook page.
