Craig officially became a Moose Lodge member a few weeks ago. The ceremony was not "hooky" and they do not wear funny hats! The initiation was held on the same night as their steak night dinner and we were given two free passes. The dinner usually cost a whopping $10.00 each, so the dinners canceled out the $20.00 application fee. As a welcome gift we were also given a pass for dinner for four sometime in the next 90 days. This is to encourage us to introduce another couple to possible membership. We are not sure who we should invite. I think most of our friends are a bit to "foodie snobbish" to appreciate the good down-home-ness of the lodge.
Last night we went to the hamburger night with the couple that were our sponsors. We enjoyed it. Again the cost was very low. $3.50 for a nice big hamburger, fresh hot fries, and a slice of water-mellon. A glass of beer or wine was $2.50.
Our Lodge is not a very fancy place, but it is clean and friendly. Here are a couple of pictures:
