As of




From the Desk of the Administrator


As most of you may have heard, beginning August 1st,  cross sponsoring is now available.    What this means to you:


A man may now sponsor a woman for membership in the WOTM Chapter, and conversely a woman may now sponsor a man in the Lodge.   The procedure is no different;  if the application is for a woman the application goes to the Chapter and if it is for a man it goes to the Lodge.  There are no changes in fees or the approval process.


This does bring about a whole new scenario.  Since anyone can sponsor a man or a woman, all guests now become prospective members.   Therefore they are only allowed two visits; after that, they must join or they no longer can come in as a guest.  The only exceptions are minor children of members, or the spouse of a member.  They can always come in as a guest.  They must be signed in.


As you can imagine, the logistics of implementing these changes are going to be a work in progress.  Please be patient as we try to make this transition as seamless as possible.

           Congratulations to John Hinkle!     

If you’ve ever been to the lodge early in the morning, you’ve probably seen John Hinkle in there working.  In fact, any time of the day you might catch him doing something - receiving groceries, changing light bulbs, setting up for Friday Fish Fry,working in the kitchen, repairing whatever is broken, pulling weeds, doing the set-up for the women’s meeting, engineering a creative way of helping the Lodge run smooth -whatever is needed, and always with a smile and a positive attitude.   John was recognized for his efforts at the annual Arizona/New Mexico Moose Association Conference on August 29 as Glendale’s Moose of the Year 2014.
