    Our daughter is getting married May 9th and we planned the reception for the Moose lodge just down from the church, I just got a call this afternoon where the lady said the Moose was closed for good today, we have near 275 rsvp's for the reception, a caterer planning on preparing a sit down for them, D.J. hired, I have been on the phone pleading with the moose district office guy to let us go ahead and use the building friday(to decorate) and saturday for the reception, I think they are going to let us--I am really hoping---when the lady told me this on the phone I just stood there not saying anything--kind of in shock---they are supposed to shut off the power the 6th, I have made a couple of calls trying to stop that, I offered to pay a couple of days utilities to hold it off---I am going fishing tomorrow and try to forget this mess---I haven't worked up the nerve to call my daughter yet.

    Tell 'em to elope A Rod. Send the RSVP's an invitation to the chivaree when they get back.

    Saves ya a lot of bucks.

    I talked to the District rep for Moose Lodge and he is going to try to let us use the building even though they are officially closed.

    Does the church have an Annex or Fellowship Hall that could be used, if all else fails? Were pulling for you, I hope all goes well.

    The problem is seating 275 people---I think I have called the right people to keep the electricity on so we can pull it off--talk about stressfull.

    Glad to hear that you will be able to have the reception.
