News Around the Lodge

   Supporting veterans is something that has always been important to the Moose. Our newest initiative the “Valued Veterans” program, has drawn so much interest from members, lodges and chapter. The focus of this program is on the recognition and support of Moose veterans with an emphasis on their ongoing service to their fraternal units and communities through the Moose. This approach simultaneously honors our veterans while also highlighting the Fraternity’s commitment to community service. Admittedly, this program may not be all things to all veterans, but we will strive to serve our veterans to the very best of our ability.
   Members can register directly as a Valued Veteran by pulling up their membership record and updating, by following the instructions. For a member who needs registration assistance, they can also call Member Services 630-906-3658.
   As we approach the Holiday Season, remember the Moose Legion motto “do some good thing for someone each day”. On December 24 the lodge will have Tom & Jerry’s from 10:00-4:00, then the lodge will close at 4:00 PM and will be closed on Christmas Day. Tickets are on sale for the New Year’s Eve celebration and we will be open on New Year’s Day. I want to wish all of you and your families a Happy and Safe Holiday Season.

Your Governor,

      Pat Thomas,

  • ORIENTATION
       There will be an orientation for members who would like to know more about our organization on Saturday, December 16th at 11:00 am. Any member who is interested, please attend. Both the Loyal Order and the WOTM Chapter will have officers at the meeting to give information and answer questions.

  • WOTM 863 Chat
       Hello Everyone and think snow, only if you want to, but some of us likes the way its been. Turkeys are put away for the year and now its time to start decorating for Christmas. December seems to be a busy month, so lets get started. Then we make New Years resolutions. We all know it is a good try but then we think of something else to take over. HA HA.
       Some questions have been asked and people want to know why we have raffles and where that money goes. Each month is for a different organization. The chariman is in charge of a fund raiser. That person raises money and that is used for what ever they want to donate to. December is Barb Mcquown's month. She is selling raffle tickets for a Christmas center piece and a candle picture that lights up. Her money will be used toward Higher Degree. The breakfast we have once a month goes to the general fund, unless a chairman needs to raise money for her chair to help with the money maker project. Our breakfast is $6.00 and all you can eat. It is held on the third sat of each month. The bake sale is every month as long as they have the fish fry. Half of that money goes to the general fund and half of it goes to send co-workers to convention. Ham loafs and pumpkin rolls are both fund raisers. So I hope this explains a little bit of what we do and where the money goes. When we do the childrens party, all supples and presents come out of our general fund. So what we do is very important for one reason or other.
       The children's Christmas party is approaching and it is fun to watch the little ones. They know that when Santa and his Elf comes, everyone of those children will receive a gift. The looks on their faces are good feeling to know that we gave effort and time to make it happen.
       So in closing, I want to wish everyone young and old, a Very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. Stay well and warm and God Bless each and everyone ..

    So until next month take care of yourself and each other.

              Till Next Month
              Peg Herron, Sr. Regent
