Welcome to our Website and our Lodge - The SCMA Friendliest Place in Town - 2010 & 2011
From the Governor & the Publications Committee -

Welcome to the new Beaufort Lodge #1855 & WOTM Chapter #2319 Moose Pages website.

I hope that each of you will share this website address with those who may not have heard about our new means of communicating with our members and guest, and encourage them to visit and support our Lodge, our activities and all that Moose stands for.

The Beaufort Moose Lodge (founded in 1957) is a unit of the Loyal Order of Moose, a fraternal and service organization founded in 1888, with nearly 1.5 million men and women in roughly 2,000 Lodges and 1600 chapters, in all 50 states and four Canadian provinces, plus Great Britain and Bermuda.

Along with other units of Moose International, the Beaufort Moose supports the operation of Mooseheart Child City & School, a 1,000-acre community for children and teens in need, located 40 miles west of Chicago; and Moosehaven, a 63-acre retirement community for its members near Jacksonville, FL. Additionally, Moose Lodges conduct approximately $93 million worth of community service (counting monetary donations and volunteer hours worked) annually. The Beaufort Moose Lodge is a nonprofit organization devoted to community service.

Because Moose members give of themselves in service, we help brighten the horizons for communities throughout the Moose domain.

For more information, go to: http://www.mooseintl.org/public/LOOM.asp

Should you want to have an event posted to the Lodge calendar – please don’t hesitate to contact me at the Lodge and have your information considered for publication on our site.

We are continually looking for updates and information from the leadership in our LOOM, WOTM and from the Moose Legion to include on our website.

Give some thought to and discuss with your fellow members and officers YOUR ideas for our Lodge and our membership and any other ideas in regards to activities that you may have for the betterment of Beaufort Moose Lodge #1855 & our WOTM Chapter #2319.

PRIVATE POLICY

Recently we have had some questions about entering the Lodge after your dues have expired. This is the official answer from Moose International. If a member’s expiration date has passed, they are no longer a member in good standing and cannot enter the Moose Lodge. They cannot be signed in as a guest either in the Social Quarters or at any social function of the Lodge. They continue to be a member not in good standing until they pay their dues or they are dropped from membership one year after the last dues expiration date. If you pay your dues on line, print out the receipt and that will allow entry until you get your card.

Dear Members,

I am YOUR BARTENDER. When you come to the Lodge, I serve you drinks, snacks and sometimes food. I want you to have a good time while you are at the Lodge, BUT sometimes, as the night rolls on, you can be very loud or very quiet.

For those of you that don't know - IF YOU DRINK & DRIVE and cause an accident; the person that was hurt CAN SUE THE PLACE WHERE YOU WERE DRINKING. Huge amounts of money are being awarded in these cases, particularily if they go to court. So ......

PLEASE DON'T BE UPSET with me should I have to say to you ... "this is the last one that I am serving you tonight." It is NOT that I don't like you, or that I am trying to RUN THE LODGE. I am just doing MY JOB and I do care about the Lodge and its members (YOU) getting home safely. I will OFFER YOU ALTERNATIVGE BEVERAGES or FOOD and if necessary OFFER TO CALL YOU A CAB.

Why, because I CARE. I'd rather have you angry at me for cutting you off, than to have YOU HURT or KILL someone on the street. WE are a FAMILY LODGE and YOU are part of that family. As your bartender, it's MY JOB to PROTECT both you AND the Lodge.

All of you know what drinking can do to some people, and many of you may say "it will never happen to me." Just remember ... I'm going to do my very best to MAKE SURE IT DOESN'T HAPPEN TO YOU!!

So, PLEASE - next time I say "THIS IS YOUR LAST DRINK FOR THE NIGHT" - remember IT IS BECAUSE I CARE.

Thank you for your understanding;

YOUR BARTENDERS & The House Committee

P.s. I learned this information when I attended the Bartender TIPS class that is a requirement by Moose International.
