On January 1st, 2020, the General Law provision of Section 48.2 went into effect that prohibits smoking/use of tobacco products in our lodge homes. The provision reads: “The use of any tobacco product or smoking device (including e-cigarettes) is strictly prohibited at any time in the social quarters or lodge home. The use of any tobacco product or smoking device (including e-cigarettes) is allowed on lodge property in lawful outdoor areas or areas for which the General Governor’s Office has provided a dispensation.” The membership of the Order overwhelmingly approved this provision at the 2019 International Convention, and expect that they can now enter any Lodge to enjoy a smoke free experience, and that their smoking brothers and qualified guests have been appropriately accommodated.

Any violations of Section 48.2 will be handled by members of the Moose International Field Staff. Complaints can be forwarded to the Moose International General Governor’s Office for follow-up.

Our new check cashing policy is each member can only cash $50 dollars per day.

Due to the abundant increase in checks being cashed at the Lodge and ATM use we will be depositing checks more frequently then before. It's possible it could be every other day based on the number of checks cashed. Please keep that in mind when cashing a check at the Lodge.


The jukebox is not to be played during any meeting being held in the back dinning hall. We appreciate your cooperation and understanding

Parents, grandparents or guardians are reminded that children under the age of sixteen (16) are not permitted in the building after 10:00PM.


Please note that officers have no official authority within the social quarters. It's the responsibility of the on-duty bartender to maintain decorum/order within the social quarters or unless an officer of the day has been designated. This officer is not permitted to consume alcohol while serving in this capacity. The bartender could ask any officer to assist with maintaining decorum/order as they see fit.
