Nov. 3, 2016 – West Bend, WI – Neighbors hearing the news that the West Bend Moose Lodge is under new direction are taking a moment to say thanks to Curt Carter and his family for all they did over the years.
“Every organization needs somebody to step up when no one is willing to do it and that person has been Curtis and the entire Carter family,” said Mayor Kraig Sadownikow.
Curt Carter and his family started at the Moose Lodge June 11, 2011. Over the years the family organized a free Easter dinner for folks so no one would have to spend Easter Sunday alone. The Carters also hosted the Kids Christmas Party and Shop with a Cop.
The Carters helped bring celebrities to the Moose Lodge including lawmakers State Senator Duey Stroebel, Congressman Glenn Grothman, Mayor Sadownikow, and they received a resolution from Gov. Scott Walker when the Moose Lodge turned 100 years old.
The Moose also could easily turn green and gold as it hosted Green Bay Packers LeRoy Butler, Paul Horning and Dorsey Levens.
“He did a lot and he spent more hours here getting things done; what needed to be done,” said Ellie Muraski, a Moose member since 1974.
The Carter family is still members of the Moose Lodge and they’re hoping to be part of its future success.
