Dear Brothers and Coworkers:
Once again Richmond Lakeside 1714 has received the Premier Lodge Award thank each and every one of you all to work towards these honors.
Congratulations to Jerry Nuckols for winning the Governor’s Award of Excellence. Good Work Jerry and well deserved.
If you have not heard our Brothers and Coworkers are having a tough time with the major floods that wiped out an entire town. The Moose Lodges that survived are acting as emergency shelters. A truck went up last week and as far as we know there are no more scheduled, but we have heard there are so many needs. The Territory Manager for West Virginia, Jim Hale, has put out an SOS to all Members. If you would like to donate please send a check made out to The Salvation Army, marked in Memo: West Virginia Flood Relief and mail to Jim Hale 1320 W13th Street, Nitro, West Virginia 25143. The Special Olympics North America Softball Invitational in Troutville, VA has 32 teams this year and will be held August 19th thru 21st. If any of you are in the area that weekend, I understand it is a wonderful event.
Fraternally Tim Rea, Administrator
