A Note from the Director General
What’s the best time of the year to be a Moose? My answer would be May and June. You’ve got the Blessing of the Bikes, Mooseheart Commencement, Pilgrim Conferral and our International Convention in Las Vegas. Plus we are just starting out the new Membership Campaign year – Create Our Future!
Because of your generosity our children at Mooseheart have a bright future and our seniors at Moosehaven have some of the best years of their lives ahead. Did you know that we set an all-time Moose Charities record this past year with 915 League of Guardian members? These incredible givers donated individually $1,000 or more in support of our Child City and our City of Contentment. If you’ve donated to Moose Charities, you get my vote for a “Most Awesome Member” Award!
Speaking of voting, we have a very important General Law Amendment coming before our delegates in Las Vegas as well. Creating a smoke free environment for all our members, guests and families to enjoy is a priority. We have to move beyond the fear of what might happen if current members cannot smoke in the Social Quarters anymore. There is also a need at a number of Lodges to provide a suitable outdoor smoking area. The Supreme Council Lodge Grant Program could be the answer to solving this issue for your Lodge by providing funds to construct outdoor accommodations for smokers. To qualify for a grant, just have your Lodge represented at the International Convention.
Together we’ll create a better Moose for generations to come. Thank you for being part of the solution and caring enough to roll up your sleeves and make a difference. Enjoy the next two months and I hope to see you on the Mooseheart campus or in Las Vegas soon!
