This Week at the Moose - 11/15/13
On this day in 1969, Apollo 12, the second manned mission to the surface of the moon, is launched from Cape Canaveral, Florida, with astronauts Charles Conrad, Jr.; Richard F. Gordon, Jr.; and Alan L. Bean aboard. Thirty-six seconds after takeoff, lightning struck the ascending Saturn 5 launch rocket, which tripped the circuit breakers in the command module and caused a power failure. Fortunately, the launching rocket continued up normally, and within a few minutes power was restored in the spacecraft. On November 19, the landing module Intrepid made a precision landing on the northwest rim of the moon's Ocean of Storms. On November 24, Apollo 12 successfully returned to Earth, splashing down only three miles from one of its retrieval ships, the USS Hornet.

This weekend is All State celebration at Glendale Lodge. Friday night, they will be having a fish fry from 4:30 to 7 and a live band from 6 to 10. The general district meeting starts at 11 on Saturday morning. Saturday night, the rib eye steak dinner starts at 5 for $15 a plate with entertainment all night, including a Miss Arizona Beauty contest (looking for the Legionnaire with the prettiest legs). Sunday morning, any new Moose Legion inductees should be at the Lodge by 9 AM for the 10 AM ceremony. There will be breakfast Saturday and Sunday morning. If you want to attend the steak dinner, please reserve your seats in advance. You can purchase tickets from myself or contact the Glendale Lodge at 623-878-4940.

Thanks for all your support and I hope to see you all at the Moose!
