Moose Legion - Going the Distance

Moose Legion Going the Distance in the Final Dash

The Final Dash is in the final stretch. We are rounding the last turn and the race is on. Will we achieve our first Moose Legion membership increase in six years? We are close but the final result depends on each jurisdiction doing its part.

Conferrals and mini conferrals need to be put together now to allow our candidates that have submitted applications to be conferred and complete their membership obligation - thus allowing the Secretary to enter an enrollment date for them. Having the apps is great - but they need to be conferred and reported as enrolled to count on our active member stats.

Then there are those members who may need a friendly reminder to renew their membership. We have to retain these members so that the new members advancing to our ranks will indeed increase our strength. Often it is as simple as a short friendly phone call reminding that member of their importance to our cause of serving childhood and senior members. Each member is important. Le's be sure they know we appreciate them.

Moose Legion Projects for this fiscal year

We are very proud of the accomplishments of our Moose Legion jurisdictions across the North American continent for the wonderful job of raising and contributing funds for our annual fundraising programs. They of course include: Student trips from Mooseheart to visit our seniors at Moosehaven - The President's Project to update the Fieldhouse PA system - the annual Youth Awareness Scholarships that we take pride in furnishing - the funds being raised for the $10 million dollar Mooseheart School renovation - contributions and competition to build the Endowment Fund - various donations made by Moose Legions to their various local charitable programs in their individual provincial & state associations and so much more!

Is there pride in all of this for our Moose Legion jurisdictions and indeed for the individual Moose Legionnaires? You bet there is! We are proud of the philanthropic support the Degree of Service has given in the past century in support of this tremendous fraternal organization known as Moose and in support of all that it stands for in our society today.

Most Moose Legions have already completed the obligations for this fiscal year and we sincerely thank each of them and their members who made that happen! We urge those remaining to wrap up the contributions early in April by submitting those final checks so we can clear the books and be able to start fresh in the next fiscal year beginning May 1st. We thank all for your support.

Moose Legion Annual Conference Call

If you have not yet registered for the annual Moose Legion Conference and International Convention of the Loyal Order of Moose - now is the time to go online at this website (www.mooseintl.org) and click the link showing the Jersey Boys / International Convention and complete your pre-registration (and save a few bucks by doing it online too!). You will want to plan to attend the Moose Legion Breakfast and general session on Friday, June 20th, as well as sessions on Saturday and the Ritual Awards Luncheon on Sunday along with all the general and special sessions of the Supreme Lodge Convention itself. We look forward to seeing you there!

 

 

 

 

Cordially & fraternally,

Bob Neff, PIP & Director

Memo from MICHAEL Mock, President Moose Legion
March 2014

Depression, that's what it is, plain and simple. There are so many Moose Legions that I've not had an opportunity to visit this year and my time in this office is getting very short. My mother told me a long time ago not to wish my life away and as I get older I know exactly what she was talking about. Blink your eye and a month goes by, a second blink and it's six months later and the next instant you realize that the International Convention in Las Vegas is in just a couple of months and I have so many Celebrations I still want to visit.

 

Our Spring Moose Legion Celebrations will be here soon and you still have an opportunity to donate to the Moose Legion President's Project for 2013-14 which is the Mooseheart Stadium PA System upgrade. As of January 31, 2014 our Moose Legion jurisdictions have given $21,926.78. There are still many Moose Legions who have not decided what they want to contribute and the finish line is in sight, we need that final push to prove that the Moose Legion will Go The Distance to raise the full $25,000.00 we pledged.

 

Congratulations to those Moose and Moose Legion members who have won on The Final Dash campaign. Have you sponsored a member since February 1st for a chance to win some cash? This is another thank you for asking your friends and associates to join the LOOM or for asking a Moose brother to elevate to the Degree of Service. Remember to check the website - you could win cash!

 

To the members of Hampton Roads Moose Legion #199, thank you for a wonderful week-end. The hospitality was great and for the first time in my Moose career I was proud to see a Moose Legion Celebration registration exceed 500 members. That is nearly beyond belief! To Gary and Bob, thanks for shipping me the banner that was used at your celebration. I have it displayed in my garage for all to see and to charge my Moose batteries whenever needed.

 

Thanks to all members everywhere for what you do for our children at Mooseheart and our seniors at Moosehaven. We must always keep them up foremost in our thoughts. I believe that James J. Davis would be proud.

 

Thank you for all your support as a member, as we make our Final Dash to Go the Distance in building the Degree of Service in this, our Moose Legion Centennial Year!

 

Fraternally yours,

 

Michael D Mock

International Moose Legion President

2013-2014
