Hello Lodge Brothers
As of this writing, Selinsgrove Lodge #1173 has twice failed to have a membership meeting in the past four weeks due to a lack of a quorum (7 members constitutes a quorum). The IRS can revoke our non profit status for failing to hold membership meetings, effectively ending the life of the Selinsgrove Moose.
This lodge has nearly one half million dollars in assets and does one quarter million dollars in business annually. And yet we can not put seven members from a list of 850 plus in the seats for a forty five minute meeting.
Everyday I hear on the news how someone embezzled thousands to tens of thousands of dollars from organizations like Vets, fire companies, little leagues etc. due to lack of oversight by the members and those groups having to close up shop.
Don't let this happen to your lodge. Please come out to a meeting every once in a while and protect your interest in the lodge. Meetings are held the 2nd and 4th Tuesday each month.
