Fellowship Degree

Membership is generally comprised of those who take an active role in building membership, serve on committees and volunteer their time and talents in service to Moose programs. Those who serve as Chairmen of various committees and as officers in the lodge, Moose Legion, district and associations are most often recognized and recommended for advancement.

November is Fellowship Honor month across the fraternity. The members of this degree are recognized for their services over the years through activities and programs. They also meet to discuss the possibility of recommending other Moose Legion members to be considered for the Fellowship Degree.

Recommendations are confidential until such time as the recommended Moose Legionnaire is selected and called by the Pilgrim Council to be conferred with the Degree of Honor. The opportunity to serve on the Lodge Fellowship Committee is one of the privileges of being a Fellow. This select group may meet as often as they like to socialize, raise funds for special projects or conduct other business beneficial to the Degree or to the Lodge.

The official regalia of a Fellow include a French-blue blazer featuring the Fellowship logo, coordinated necktie, white shirt, black trousers and black footwear. The regalia may be worn at any function of the Order and is symbolic of the character and strength that these men have provided to the Moose fraternal structure.

A Fellow is someone who has been a leader and is now often an all-important mentor to newer members helping to guide them along a fraternal leadership path towards enhancing our existing programs. They continue to serve in various ways to keep their fraternal units strong, often through positive efforts in membership recruitment and retention.

Moose Legion

These Moose Legionnaires feel an increased level of pride in membership. Opportunities to be leaders and to provide additional support for the Order’s philanthropic causes in relation to Mooseheart & Moosehaven are recognized through involvement in this degree.

Each lodge is encouraged to organize Moose Legion Committees. These groups hold various functions for the social enjoyment of the local members. By so doing not only do the members enjoy their membership even more, but additional support is generated for the lodge itself.

Additionally, an area of lodge’s band together and unify efforts to form Moose Legion jurisdictions (sort of like a district). These jurisdictions then hold additional functions for members, set up by the boards of directors elected by the members. They raise significant funds for support of Moosehaven and Mooseheart as well as general support of the state and provincial associations and indeed the fraternity itself.

The Moose Legion is known as being the “Degree of Service” because of the many programs it supports. It is also possibly even better known as the “Fun Degree.” Our members do like to enjoy themselves! Our mission is: “To have fun while providing greater service to the Moose fraternity.” Our motto is: “To do some good thing for someone each day.”
