Press release submitted by Wally Harkert


Greetings Community Residents

My name is, Wally Harkert and I'm with the Rock Island Moose Lodge 190, located at 4410 – 9th St. Rock Island. We would like to cordially invite you to the Lodge, on January 26th, 2013, for an informal Town Hall Meeting. This meeting is to inform the community residents of what the Fraternal Loyal Order of the Moose is all about. Our International Slogan for this year is," Heard of Moose", and many people have not, we would like to change that. We will explain what we support, community service events we do, and what we can offer for all. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at wlhrte6@yahoo.com. I have listed some useful information about our events we have planned for that whole day, below.
