To refresh memories, the Glendale Moose Lodge located at 357 Arden St. in Glendale, CA was sold and escrow was closed in July, 2014.
The new officers were installed in April, 2013. At that time we discovered that the Lodge was in a serious financial situation. The Lodge was in debt with two large loans and with very little income coming in. The Lodge was having financial problems paying its monthly bills. We made some changes in the Lodge operations and through the efforts of Don Thompson, the Lodge Administrator, were able to recover some funds owed to us by insurance. We were able to continue to keep the doors open for another year. But the writing was on the wall—sell the Lodge property and save our charter or lose the property. Consequently, we sold the Lodge property, paid off all of the existing debt and invested the remaining funds. Today, the Lodge is in a very healthy financial position.
In December of 2014 we relocated to the Knights of Columbus building in Glendale, CA. We held a “Cook Your Own Steak” night and a couple of community activities. We provided several free breakfasts for our local firefighters and police officers.
In June of 2016 we relocated to the Memorial Hall at 4011 La Crescenta Ave. in Glendale, CA, where we have a lease until June 2019. We have held a few activities here. We held a Christmas Dinner Dance, an Italian Night Dinner Dance, and a couple of other dinner dances. We held memorial services for our Brothers Al Garcia, Frank Rubino and George

CALLING ALL VETERANS: Go to the Moose International website: www.mooseintl.org to identify yourself as a "valued veteran" if you have served in any branch of our country's military.
On October 21st the Lodge hosted an Italian Dinner Dance. Members enjoyed a dinner of penne pasta with tomato sauce, sausages, garlic bread, salad and dessert. After dinner they danced to the Generation Gap Band.
The badge worn by Police and Fire personnel is not a symbol of authority but rather a symbol of dedication by the person wearing it to protect you and yours from harm.
Their selfless desire to serve our communities deserves our admiration and respect.
Just like we thank our troops for their service to our country, when you have the opportunity, thank those wearing the badge for their service to you and your community.
I am positive such a gesture would be overwhelmingly appreciated by those who put themselves in harm’s way every day.
Don Thompson, Administrator
