Nov. 3, 2016 – West Bend, WI – Some change in management at the West Bend Moose Lodge as an effort is underway to grow membership, make needed repairs to the building and get on a solid financial path.
Lodge Treasurer Al Bath of Kewaskum is the new administrator taking over for Curtis Carter. “Curt stepped down,” said Bath. “This will give me a position to help the lodge grow.”
Bath has been a member of the Moose Lodge for four years. Another appointment includes Steve Rohde as the new kitchen manager. “He was unanimously voted in and a great asset to the lodge,” said Bath.
Rohde, who just retired from a career in law enforcement, said he always felt comfortable in the kitchen and behind the grill. The Moose Lodge is already rolling out some new menus on taco Tuesday, burger night and Friday fish fries.
Bath said there may be some minor changes in the price of the food but the quality will go up. He said other changes will happen “little by little.”
Bernie Kiefer is in his third year as governor of the Moose Lodge in West Bend. “Right now my goal is to empower individuals a bit above what has been done in the past,” he said.
The West Bend Moose Lodge was founded in 1911. The lodge is committed to community, to Mooseheart in Illinois, and Moosehaven in Florida. The organizations are designed to take care of the children, their future education and senior citizens.
