We have a Winner!

$100 Winner!

Ron found his Membership number in the Antlers!

Congratulations Ron Benish and thank you for taking the time to read our outstanding monthly newsletter!  The $100 pot is a big thank you for reading the newsletter, finding your membership number hidden within and coming to the next lodge meeting after the newsletter comes out to claim your prize money.  The prize pot starts over in August with $25 in the pot!

The Newsletter Number Game 

The Membership Committee created a membership game incorporated into our monthly Antlers Newsletter.  Members who read the monthly lodge newsletter might find their membership number hidden somewhere inside. When the member finds their number, the member comes to the next Lodge meeting to collect $25 in person, in cash.  The pot builds if it’s not claimed each month to a maximum of $300 in one  year!

    • Only can be claimed at the next Lodge meeting after a newsletter is printed.  Generally the second Tuesday of the month after a newsletter comes out unless there is only one meeting in the next month, (July, August & December)
    • You must be present at the meeting to win.

How it works: a member number will be chosen at the second Tuesday of the month Lodge meeting by our Esquire. ((28311)) It will be recorded and then sent to the newsletter editing team to be hidden somewhere in the text of any article in the Antlers newsletter for the month after the number was drawn.  If you see your number in the newsletter bring it and yourself to the next lodge meeting after the newsletter was printed to claim your prize – and don’t forget your membership card!  You need to be a member in good standing to attend the meeting and therefore to claim the prize.

We’ve hidden a membership number in this text as an example. Did you find it?

The goal is to encourage members to receive the lodge newsletter, read the Newsletter and attend a meeting (even if it’s the only meeting of the year they attend to claim their prize!).  Our lodge sends out over 1500 emails with the newsletter linked to inside and generally it is opened to be read by about 300 members that received it.  Conversely know that the newsletter is also printed and mailed out to almost 500 members each month at an average cost of $1.20/member.  Affording to mail it everyone is a tremendous cost to the lodge so we appreciate those that receive it by email and are hoping to find an exciting way to get you all to read our lodge newsletter – the primary form of communication between the lodge and the member.
