Also for the Junior Regent we need someone to step up- If you feel you can contribute to the Chapter and Lodge some time and energy to fill either of these officers seats. Please, see any Chapter Officer to get you started. These are important seats Again I would like to thank all those who were there and gave me a "Big" helping hand. I couldn't have done it alone!

Thank You

Thank you to everyone who came out to Celebrate Keith and his new appointment as Deputy Supreme Governor! A special thank you to Linda Either, Pat and Chuck DeValle, Kandi Knudson and Greg Miller, Jennifer Robinson, Brad Robinson, Jessica Brooks, Mike Fluman, Aaron Johnson, Carol Toozer, Rod McCain and Jerry Fox. You each worked a different part, some before the event, some during and some after. Thank you for helping me put my vision into place, from food to floor plan. I appreciate each and everyone of you!!! 

Sincerely, Bridget

Thank You

I would like to give huge thanks to Paula Shimizu, Joan Hilliker, Anne Pena, Patrick Norton, Peggy Mahoney and Marian Thompson for their generous donation of the ingredients to make the shrimp and sausage boil for my event in September. Way to be great Moose members guys!!! I also want to thank Kandice Knudson and Judy Duerr for helping me with food prep, serving and clean-up. And thank you John Darling for helping with dishes and Aaron Johnson for supplying the cornhole game. You all rock and are the greatest friends! Stephanie

 

Once again I would like to thank my Friday crew for helping me with my dinners.  I can't do it without you.  I am taking a small break to give other members a chance to step in and cook.  I really appreciate it when people stop me in social quarters and ask me if they can help.  It’s music to my ears.  Thank you all  for supporting my dinners. Its people like you that make my endeavors a success.  It is the first year that I really stepped forward and I really am enjoying it. On the sad side, there are three hundred women in our organization, why is it that only a small handful of us  ever show up for the womens meetings??  Meetings are a great source of finding out what the Moose is all about.  Every one is welcome.  It's not just about the social quarters.  Take some time.{meetings last about a half hour} and join us to find out what really is going on,.

PAULINE BIRGE, Jr. Regent

The Southern California Girls Ritual Team would like to thank everyone who came out to play Texas Hold 'em and help support our team in getting to Nashville.

The team was very proud to represent and bring the 1st place award back to California, Our Districts, Lodges and Chapters. Thank you to Garden Grove and El Monte LOOM for allowing us to use the hall, for what seemed like endless practices. We couldn't have achieved anything without your support!

Moose International Membership Campaign 2016-2017

"MOOSE - RAISE THE ROOF"

   

  “MOOSE - Raise The Roof” in 2016 -2017

Membership campaigns are created and implemented by the Membership Department at Moose International. Annual Membership Campaigns typically run from May 1 to April 30 and have a unique theme each year.

This year’s Annual Membership Campaign is Moose – Raise the Roof, which runs from May 1, 2016 to April 30, 2017. Last year we focused on growing our Lodges and Chapters – our foundation – in order to support our core values. Now it’s time to build on that success and push above those levels so that our communities can hear our celebration loud and clear.

The Responsibilities of The Chapter’s SENIOR REGENT


The Senior Regent is the presiding officer of all meetings of a Women of the Moose Chapter—including Chapter Night, Board of Officers, business meetings, and any other special meeting of the Chapter.

 

Major responsibilities of a Senior Regent also include:

 

Appointing all chairmen of Chapter Development, Standing, and Special Committees, as well as all Appointed Officers, the Ritual Director, and the Musician.

 

Signing the Secretary/Treasurer Chapter Minutes Book immediately after all minutes are read and approved by the Chapter.

 

Dividing the entire membership of the Chapter, and appointing every co-worker to serve on one of the eight Chapter Development Committees.

 

Note: A monthly joint meeting between the Lodge and the Chapter is encouraged, as it improves communication between the two entities and strengthens the entire Moose operation.

 

 

 

ACCOMPLISHMENTS OF THE WOMEN OF THE MOOSE

The Women of the Moose, with roughly 500,000 members in 1,800 member Chapters, comprise the female component of the Moose organization and have greatly contributed to the successes of Mooseheart and Moosehaven through the sponsorship of many projects.

 Part of the per-capita tax remitted by Chapters to the Women of the Moose office each quarter is earmarked to finance the operation of the Health Department at Mooseheart. This means the Women of the Moose is helping to maintain the hospital and staff responsible for the excellent care given to the boys and girls at Mooseheart.

The health center is well-equipped and incorporates complete dental care and orthodontia, provided by licensed consulting professionals. Complete eye care is also furnished, and corrective lenses are provided to students who require them.

A portion of the scholarships for Mooseheart graduates is provided by the Women of the Moose for many years. Since 1949, a special sponsor's music scholarship for four years of training in a music school has been available.

A nurse's scholarship fund is available for Mooseheart students who desire to enter hospital training schools. This fund is provided by voluntary contributions from the hospital committees in the Chapters; it has aided thousands of students in obtaining training in nursing.

 Supplying the libraries at Mooseheart with books and other materials originated in 1928 and has continued ever since. This is a project of the library chairman and her committee. Countless books also get donated to libraries in the respective communities of the Chapters.

One of the big projects each year is the holding of "Christmas in October" parties. Every Chapter collects gifts for the children at Mooseheart and for the elderly at Moosehaven. It is the generous outpouring of gifts and money from the Chapter co-workers that makes it possible for the children and elderly to have a joyous holiday season.

The Women of the Moose have been responsible for many improvements at Moosehaven. Most recently in the 1990s, the Women of the Moose have funded extensive renovations of Academy Hall (of which they originally funded construction in 1965) and of Cluster Hall (now renamed for Grand Chancellor Emeritus Vivian Borom). They have also funded the construction of a badly needed facilities-maintenance building, which was named in honor of Grand Chancellor Emeritus Kay Cancie.

The sea wall and concrete pier on the banks of the St. John's River, dedicated at the 1962 International Convention, were financed by Chapter donations. Additionally, Katherine Smith Hall, named after the first Grand Chancellor of the Women of the Moose, was dedicated during the International Convention in Florida in 1972.

In the late 1980s and early ‘90s, the Women of the Moose raised funds to renovate the Moosehaven administration building. The Women of the Moose also raised the necessary funds for a new computer system within the Paul P. Schmitz Health Center.

In 2003, after three years of depressed investments placed the future of Mooseheart’s independent schools in jeopardy, the Women of the Moose came through yet again–committing to a permanent $5-per-member dues increase, with all of that increase going toward the underwriting of the Mooseheart school operating budget.

In addition to the many projects sponsored at Mooseheart and Moosehaven, Women of the Moose Chapters have earned recognition throughout the country for their participation in community service work in the communities in which they are located. By the first decade of the 21st century, Women of the Moose donations totaled more than $7 million annually. It shows that the Women of the Moose are ever ready to lend a huge helping hand to help make the vision of the Moose fraternity into reality.

 

 

 

HISTORY OF THE WOMEN OF THE MOOSE

The Women of the Moose is the women's component of the Moose organization. Convening their first annual conference in conjunction with the Loyal Order Of Moose Convention in 1913, the organization was originally called the "Women's Loyal Moose Circle,” and in 1916 was made a subgroup of the Mooseheart Legion. Under its first chief executive, Katherine Smith, the group became independent and was renamed "Women of the Moose" in 1931.

There are presently more than 1,800 Chapters of the Women of the Moose in the United States and Canada, with a late-1990s membership of approximately 540,000. Each Chapter is instituted to promote the principles, ideals, and philanthropic purposes of the fraternity.

The growth and progress of the Women of the Moose are the result of the program of committees established in 1927. The committees provide activities that interest all members in the Chapter, and the funds raised by each committee assist in maintaining Mooseheart and Moosehaven.

Honors are awarded to Chapter officers, chairmen, escorts, and the Ritual Director who meet specific requirements during the Chapter year. These honors are referred to as degrees, and they consist of the Academy of Friendship, Star Recorder, and College of Regents.

 The Academy of Friendship Degree was first awarded in 1927, the College of Regents Degree was conferred in 1935, and the first Star Recorder Degree in 1946. The Academy of Friendship Degree is conferred in each state and province annually, and the College of Regents and Star Recorder Degrees are conferred annually at the International Conference.

The great accomplishments of the Women of the Moose are many and varied. Cooperation between the Lodges and Chapters is essential in providing for Mooseheart and Moosehaven-- and for participating in community services. Every community benefits when a Lodge and Chapter are located jointly within its limits.
