A Note from the Chairman of the Board

As we come together to celebrate this holiday season, please remember our mission to help those less fortunate than us. Keep our children at Mooseheart, our seniors at Moosehaven and the communities we serve in your thoughts, words, deeds, and actions.

Someone said, if we make a difference in one life, we have done a good thing. Well, you, my Moose family, have made a difference in countless lives by your giving of your time, energy, and substance. Think about how you have impacted and continue to impact our children, seniors, neighbors and friends each and every day. Keep up the great giving and compassion you share.

I am very thankful for my cousins, my Moose family, and the great friends I am lucky enough to have. I wish each and every one of you and your families a Merry Christmas and a happy, healthy New Year! God bless you all!
