2018 Supreme Council Grant Recipients

The Supreme Council has extended the Lodge Grant Program for a second consecutive year, dedicating funding of $1,000,000 in renovations and repairs for lodges in need for 2018-19. Originally, the Grant Program was scheduled to run for three years with the final projects being completed in 2017; however, after examining the overall success of lodges who had participated in the program, the Council decided to extend the program for a second additional year.

Thank you to every lodge that applied and congratulations to the recipients. We look forward to seeing photos of the completed projects. View the full list of the 2018 Supreme Council Grant Recipients here.

International Open House Day – October 27th

Moose International has designated Saturday, October 27, 2018 as “International Open House Day” for lodge homes throughout the Fraternity. This date corresponds with Founder’s Day, which celebrates the birth of James J. Davis, the driving force who brought purpose and meaning to the Fraternity during its earliest stages.

All lodges and chapters are encouraged to conduct events that will bring friends, family and local residents in touch with the Moose, our lodge homes, and the work we do on behalf of children, seniors and our communities. Additionally, lodges and chapters that conduct an Open House on this day may use the event as one of their activities for Member Retention Week. Simply indicate your participation on your form following Retention Week.

The General Governor’s Office has issued a blanket dispensation for all lodges and chapters to hold events on that day that are open to the public, as long as the Moose’s general guidelines for public events are followed. Alcohol may or may not be served, based on the structure of the event, but cannot not be sold to members or non-members during the event. Lodges and chapters should refer to Section 46.13 of the General Laws for guidelines to public events, such as Open Houses.

**Note, if October 27th is unavailable to conduct an Open House, the blanket dispensation allows lodges and chapters to hold the event a week earlier, on Saturday, October 20th.

To order applications / Heard of Moose? brochures for this event, email the Catalog Sales department. Applications / brochures come in packs of 50 and are free minus the cost of shipping, which will be applied to your monthly statement.
