A Note from the Chairman of the Board
Brothers and sisters. You do not achieve the Higher Degrees of the Moose Legion and the Women of the Moose without giving of your time, energy, and sustenance selflessly. You are the people that have led by demanding work and example. This arduous work keeps our lodges and chapters moving so they can give much needed support to our communities and our children at Mooseheart and seniors at Moosehaven. I thank you for your past efforts.
Congratulations to all of our new degree recipients.
The towns, states and country are experiencing tough times, and so are we all. It is now that we, the new and old members of the higher degrees, must reach down even further and continue to provide the leadership, guidance and education to our officers and membership to help ensure a bright future for our communities, our children, and seniors.
As it says in the Fellowship conferral, “There is a destiny that makes us brothers, none goes his way alone. That which we send into the lives of others, comes back into our own.”
I ask you to continue this oath and the oath we all took when we were enrolled “To increase and strengthen our defending circle.”
If every brother or sister in the fraternity would sign one new brother or sister, we would not need to worry about retention.
But you, the members of the Higher Degrees, are those special individuals who have the ability to “Make it Happen.” Why? Because we care.
Please reach out and convince others about the importance to continue our Fraternity’s dreams for our children at Mooseheart, seniors at Moosehaven and community service in our lodge regions.
As I travel, I look forward to highlighting the great things our lodges do to support our communities, along with meeting the fine brothers and sisters of the Moose.
Thank you and God Bless the brothers and sisters of the Higher Degrees of the Fraternity, God bless Mooseheart and Moosehaven, and God Bless the United States of America and Canada.
