January Message from Cletus McManama

Greetings from the Grand Regent.

As we bid 2021 goodbye and welcome in 2022 may this year be our best year yet. We are now in our first year as One Moose, working side by side with our Brothers and Sisters. Maybe you are an Officer or Chairman for your Lodge; if so, I say thank you for stepping up to assist your Moose home, but let’s not forget our Chapters also need your leadership and guidance.

January is our time to set up our nominating committee.  This committee is one of the most important ones of our Chapter. This committee will select our leaders for next year. Make sure you are selecting the people who will lead us to a successful year, just don’t put people on the ballot because they are your friend or a warm body. Evaluate their qualities – will they put in the time and effort necessary to make sure we reach all of our goals?  Remember we cannot do the work we need to do for Mooseheart and Moosehaven, as well as all our others projects without dedicated members and effective leaders.  For more details please refer to the Women of the Moose General Laws beginning on page 52, Sec. 83.

Just remember a New Year means a new chapter.  I hope 2022 is everything you want it to be. Let’s always work together for the good of The Moose.
