November Message from Cletus McManama

At this time of year, we are reminded of how much we have to be grateful for and appreciate all that we have.

We are thankful for our Sisters who have stepped up during these very trying times and kept our Chapters going. Continue to do the work for Mooseheart and Moosehaven, never faltering in your duties.

Let’s make it a priority to stay in contact with our members. As this is Membership Retention month, consider spearheading a telephone committee. Let’s reach out to our delinquent members and bring them back into the fold. We need to remind them how important they are to our Chapters. Their participation will help us have a successful Chapter year.

May we always be thankful for friends and family, including our Moose Family. The friends I have had the pleasure of meeting along my Moose journey have shaped my life. Chapters are so vital to our Moose Organization; we need to share our experiences and explain to others how chapters assist our members, our communities and those in need.

Let us appreciate all that we have and never take the small things for granted. Maybe the smile you shared with a stranger brightened their day. It may be the cheer they need this holiday season, which may be difficult for some. We are truly blessed: it only takes a moment to make a difference in the life of someone.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving and may God bless each and every one of you.

Cletus McManama, Grand Regent
