From the Senior Regent, November 2021

Happy Holidays Co Workers and Brothers!

Congratulations to Co Worker Peggy Ussery for running both a very successful Christmas in October Craft Faire on October 16th, then chairing the delightful Christmas in October Women of the Moose stated meeting on October 19th! Way to go Peggy!

With Thanksgiving approaching, it’s time to talk turkey:

Remember your first day of high school? When you were excited to go, to start something new, but nervous at the same time? Excited to meet new people, but what if they don’t like you? Excited to try new things, but what if you fail at it and look like a dork? What table will you choose in the cafeteria? What if those who are already there don’t want you to join them and send you away? How embarrassing!

This is the same dynamic that a new member of the Lodge faces when s/he first comes to the Moose Home for dinner! And the first question asked after the food choices is: “At which table will you be sitting?” It’s like high school all over again!

So, if a member that you don’t know well asks to sit at your table — be kind! Allow them to join you! You might be surprised and might even make a new friend in the process!

Newer members, please remember that some of these people have known each other for years before they met you. Many of them went to high school together! They formed their posse long ago. So, instead of feeling left out, contact your own friends, invite them to join you for dinner at the Moose, and form your own posse.

At least it’s not cheerleader tryouts!

Wishing you all a blessed, happy, and healthy holiday season.

In Faith, Hope and Charity,

L.E “ Ellie Bowen”
