Do you believe in Santa? We do! Santa sent one of his helpers by the name of Rich Penza to our Lodge and Rich dropped off a 2012 Collectors Edition Fat Tire Beer Bicycle for The Mooseheart Challenge Committee to raffle off later this year. This is a valuable Felt Brand Bicycle and the New Belgium Brewery in Colorado only has 500 to 800 of these bicycles made every year. They are dated and numbered and every year they have a different style and color scheme and you cannot buy these bicycles in the store. We Thank You Rich.
The raffle of this bike will help us to reach our goal of $15000.00 and if we can reach our goal we will get a classroom named after The Mooseheart Challenge and The Woodstock Moose Lodge.
The committee is already looking at emblems, sponsor shirts, polo shirts, fundraising ideas etc. etc. etc. But the biggest fundraiser we have is the 45 mile bicycle ride, the 5k Walk and the just added a 25 mile bicycle ride (this is to attract more riders). Last year we had 18 riders and 24 walkers, and these volunteers raised many Thousands Of Dollars thru pledges.
We Need Your Help and your ideas. We Need More Riders and Walkers to achieve this great honor for our Lodge. Spread The Word to fellow members and friends, family and neighbors. Watch for more details in your Moosecall and postings at the Lodge. God Bless Mooseheart.
Thank you, Mooseheart Challenge Committee

The Mooseheart Challenge and The Woodstock Moose Lodge has a golden opportunity that few Lodges will ever have. Starting “right now” we are raising funds for The Mooseheart Challenge for the 2013 Bicycle ride and Walk. If we can raise $15,000.00, The Mooseheart Challenge and The Woodstock Moose Lodge will have a classroom named after us in the new and renovated school at Mooseheart. Lets face it, that classroom would be the “ultimate tribute” to all members, past, present, and future. Start talking to fellow members and your friends to encourage them to ride and/ or walk to help raise funds. Please let us know about any possible sponsors. If you know anyone who needs a tax deduction for 2012 or 2013 ask them to make a check out to Moose Charities and put in the memo Mooseheart Challenge and turn it into the office or give it to Bruce Bailey, Randy Thiede or Peg Plimmer and we will get it to Mooseheart. If you have any ideas to help raise funds and/or you like to help us, please talk to one of the people mentioned above. We are asking for your help and this would be a great honor for ALL OF US
Thank you, Bruce Bailey
Pilgrim Glen Fringer, Woodstock Moose Lodges oldest member at 92, and longest serving member (66 years this November) recently had the thrill of attending an Honor Flight to Washington D.C. on August 1st. Glen was among 97 WW II vets making a one day trip to D.C. Glen was a member of the Army’s 25th Infantry Division and served in the south Pacific from 1944-1946.
His son in law, Chris Burns, had heard of the program and filled out the application for Glen 6 weeks earlier. He was accompanied by his grandson Nate Burns, who said it was a great day for his grandpa and he was honored to be with him.
It was a long day for Glen. He was picked up to go to the airport at 2:00am on Wednesday and returned home at 1:30am on Thursday. Glen flew into D.C. and the group first visited the WWII Memorial where there was an emotional service for all attending. They also visited the Lincoln, Korean and Vietnam Memorials. They finished the day with a trip to the National Air and Space Museum.
On the return flight they had “Mail Call”. Letters had been gathered as a surprise for all on the fl ight. Glen received well over 100 letters from friends, family and strangers thanking him for the service to his country. He was touched by each and every one!
Arriving at Midway Airport there was a Welcome Home Celebration. There were 1000-1500 people waiting at baggage claim to greet the returning vets. Many of the vets, Glen included, were overcome with the sights and sounds of people cheering for them and waiting to shake their hand and say welcome home!
Glen said that it was the most wonderful day and was so happy he was able to be a part of it. He could not believe how many people volunteered their time and services for this one day whirlwind tour. He is incredibly honored that he was a part of this wonderful Honor Flight program and would encourage others to apply.
