Can you believe the Glendale Moose Lodge is turning 90? Yes, 1928-2018. Just think of it, for 90 years we have supported Mooseheart and Moosehaven. What a legacy! There have been many, many changes over the years. Members, Officers, fundraisers, celebrations of life, some good, some sad, but we continue our dedication to our mission: “It’s for the kids.” Today, more than ever, it is important to stay the course. The pressures on our economy don’t leave much room for charity anymore. All too often those in need are cast aside and forgotten. So as Moose members it becomes our responsibility to help. Your membership dues and individual donations are crucial to this endeavor. Happy Birthday Lodge #641, and God Bless America.
Meetings are on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of every month. Officers meet at 7pm and members at 8pm with complimentary refreshments provided. Monday, May 14th meeting has been cancelled. The next meeting is scheduled for Monday, July 23, 2018.

GLENDALE MOOSE LODGE!
HOW DID IT BEGIN?
Glendale Moose members, what do you know about Mooseheart? Yes, it is our Child City whose purpose is to support needy kids—children at risk. However, do you know that:
On October 27, 1906, James J. Davis, age 33, was enrolled into the Loyal Order of Moose as its 247th member. He had a vision of a child city whose purpose would be to help needy children. A place where these children could be housed, clothed and fed; a place where they would receive the education and vocational training needed to succeed in life. He also was aware that it would be quite expensive and funds would be required annually to accomplish this. Davis felt that with enough members, it would be possible to attain. He convinced other members of his vision and collectively they traveled throughout the US and they got others to become Moose members. By 1909, membership grew from 247 members to over 30,000 members. James J. Davis was named the fraternity’s first Director General. By 1913, through his leadership, the membership grew to over 400,000.
