2015 is coming to a close. I want to take this opportunity to thank those who have done so much to advance the mission of our organization: To Chuck Moore, thanks for your tireless efforts at the Pancake Breakfasts. To Bill Morrison, thanks for wearing and performing with the Tommy Moose costume. To John McCoy and Louis Gabriele for the fantastic photos of our Tommy Moose events. To John Gutierrez, for all your work in arranging the hall and efforts in the kitchen. To Kevin McGrath for adding festive decorations to our events. To Christine Morrison for her accounting and computer expertise. To Terry Hill for her unwavering dedication to our Lodge and the creation and management of our website and “Call of the Moose” which, by the way, will be submitted to Moose International for award consideration. To Horst Enke, Lodge #641’s 2015 “Moose of the Year.” To Governor Richard Burrola for his 110% support. To Jack Wunderlich, Frank Rubino and Al Garcia who make my job a labor of love. Happy New Year to all. Thank you.
 
Fraternally,
Don Thompson

Why should I remain as an active member of the Moose Fraternity? Actually, who would ever even want to become a Moose member?


Well, there are many reasons; allow me to mention a few. If you believe in providing children in need with an education, room & board, medical care, a family environment, friendship, activities to participate in, programs that provide these children with ethics, morals and values, then you have all the reasons for continuing to stay active as a Moose member of your Lodge. Furthermore, we should all be trying to find individuals who believe in this mission to become members of the Moose.


If you believe in providing our senior members with a life of contentment, room & board, activities that help to keep them active and healthy in their everyday lives, programs that provide them with a vision of usefulness in their senior years, then you possess all the reasons to remain or become a Moose member.


If you believe in helping and supporting our local communities such as Toys 4 Tots, Salvation Army, our veterans, local schools, Fire Dept. and Police Dept. and many more, then you possess all the reasons to be a member of the Moose Fraternity. Supporting the needy children at Mooseheart and the senior Moose members at Moosehaven is a privilege.

On September 27, October 25 & November 29, 2015 the Glendale Moose Lodge #641, in cooperation with The Knights of Columbus Council #1920, hosted pancake breakfasts for members of Glendale Fire Stations. During the breakfasts, the Battalion Commanders were presented with "Tommy Moose" dolls--one dozen for each station. "Tommy Moose" is a friendly, playful, cuddly moose doll whose sole purpose is to bring comfort to children in times of stress, uncertainty or anxiety, calming them and giving them a soothing object to refocus their attention toward while emergency aid takes place.
