Charitable Gaming Changes - PLEASE RECONSIDER...

  The many Moose Lodges across our country help those in need...  Children (Mooseheart), Elderly (Moosehaven) Veterans, Rescue Squad, Fire Department, Fire Department, our Public Library, just to name a few organizations we have helped recently!  We are a Civic Community based organization.  We use our gaming money to give back to our community.  PLEASE do not take this away from us.  

  Increasing this amount to 40% will not only take away from these needy organizations, but will also cause layoffs and many smaller Lodges will be forced to close their doors.  PLEASE revisit this agenda and reconsider the long-term affect these increases will have on many rural communities such as ours....Appomattox, VA!!!
