WICHITA — A year after moving to a new spot, the Loyal Order of the Moose 138 has closed.

"The lodge was dissolved," says administrator Tom Chendorain.

Members met last week to decide the fate of the lodge, which Chendorain says suffered a "lack of support of the membership."

The lodge has been in various places around Wichita since 1952. The international fraternal and service organization, which supports a number of charities, was founded in 1913.

Last year, the lodge moved from its home of 20 years behind Club Rodeo on East Kellogg to 3130 W. Central near Central and Zoo Boulevard.

Chendorain says the move had nothing to do with the closure.

"No, it was just a matter of poor membership support over the years."
