From July 12 to July 15, 2018 our Lodge sent me to New Orleans, Louisiana as a delegate to the Moose International Convention. New Orleans was hot and humid but still bearable. The Moose held its 130th meeting of the Supreme Lodge (LOOM), the 106th International Conference of the Women of the Moose (WOTM) and the 52nd anniversary of the Moose Legion Degree of Service International Conference.
The Director General, Scott D. Hart, our Past Supreme Governor, focused his delivery on our new campaign theme, “Moose On A Mission.” The Director General went on to tell us that our Moose fraternity has a lot to be proud of this past year. We celebrated: the 100th class to graduate from Mooseheart, our Child City; the opening of Centennial Hall at Moosehaven; the 100th anniversary of the “Pilgrim Degree of Merit;” and, our continuing efforts to help our local communities.
The Supreme Governor, Willard Kitchens, offered his thanks to all of us for our devotion and support to our two treasures, Mooseheart and Moosehaven.
Some of the other highlights are noted below:

We all have goals to attain.
As members of this organization our principal goal is for “Moose Charities,” i.e., Mooseheart and Moosehaven.
It is up to us to continue this noble endeavor. At our meetings each month we “pass the hat.” Those that are here put in whatever they can. I hope those of you who don’t attend meetings take it upon yourselves to send in a little also; every dollar helps.
My dear mother reminded me as a young lad about goals this way: “As you travel on through life my son, no matter what your goal, keep your eye upon the donut and not upon the hole!”
God bless Mooseheart and Moosehaven.
Meetings are on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of every month. Officers meet at 7pm and members at 8pm with complimentary refreshments provided. The next meeting is scheduled for Monday, September 24, 2018.
