Our fraternal organization provides valuable service to our communities, care for children and teens in need at Mooseheart Child City & School , a 1,000-acre campus, located 40 miles west of Chicago and care for our senior members at Moosehaven, a 70-acre retirement community near Jacksonville, Florida. With a combined membership of over one million members in the Loyal Order of Moose and Women of the Moose, our presence is felt in over 1,500 communities across all 50 states and four Canadian provinces, plus Great Britain. The Moose organization contributes between $75 to $100 million worth of community service (counting monetary donations, volunteer hours worked and miles driven) annually. Moose Charities Inc., is a registered nonprofit,  charity, charged with the primary goal of providing the necessary resources for the continued support and maintenance of the Mooseheart Child City & School and the Moosehaven retirement community.

Due to the Corona Virus Mid Year Conference is canceled! All Moose calendar activities (i.e. District meetings, all training, sports events, etc.) are canceled until May 3rd 2020.

All Florida Lodges please note the highlighted section, as this currently seems to be the item of most relevance to Social Quarters operations with less than 50% income derived from food sales.

My Brothers and Co-workers,         April 4, 2020

Supreme Governor Rodney Hammond has released an e-mail advising the Fraternity that the convention in Milwaukee has been canceled.  The announcement will be posted and you will all have an opportunity to read what the next steps Moose International will be implementing.

We are starting the month of April and I personally do not see any light at the end of the tunnel for the COVID-19 virus and, just my opinion, believe we have a ways to go before it is completely under control. The Florida Governor has issued a number of directives and I encourage all of our members to heed these directives of social separation as at this time it seems to be the only thing slowing the spread of the virus. 

For those lodges that have been doing clean up, painting, remodeling, etc I applaud you, it’s great to see the Moose spirit of cooperation and working together is still there.

I am sure there will be more information to come from Moose International concerning the “virtual convention” and it will all be posted.

In the meantime I ask you all to be safe, be strong and stay well as we continue to fight this dreaded virus 

Fraternally,
Charlie Geary
President, FMA

Create Our Future   One Moose - 3/23/2020

By now you have heard the FMA Mid-Year Conference was cancelled because of the Coronavirus plaguing our Country and the World. Many of you are working in your Lodges with Clean up and Improvement Projects, so when this disease is brought under control you will come back stronger than ever.

 Both the Chapters and Lodges continue to increase their Membership Numbers and I am confident we will go to the Moose International Annual Convention in Milwaukee as the largest Association in the Fraternity. We will also have the “Bragging Rights” of having attained our Plus One Goal Number.

 We have suspended class room training through May 3, 2020, but this is an opportunity to use the On-Line Training to complete the required training. By completing your training you will be able to do a better job in the operation of your Chapters and Lodges. 

 We need to keep focused on what we do and remember why we do it. We need to make sure we make every Lodge and Chapter the best they can be. We need to do only things that support Mooseheart, Moosehaven and our Communities. If we do that our Fraternity will grow. Mooseheart and Moosehaven needs your support through these trying times more than ever.  

 Thanks for all you do in support of the Lodges, Chapters, Moose Legions, Council of Higher Degrees and our Fraternity. Never lose sight that our efforts are for the Support of Mooseheart and Moosehaven. God bless Mooseheart, Moosehaven, the Moose Fraternity and most of all you.

Hello Fraternal Friends,
I hope everyone is already registered for our FMA Mid-
Year Conference coming up shortly. You don’t want to
miss sharing in this historical moment in time as we have
our first ever Joint Association Conference! Our Joint
Full Board meeting was filled with many great leaders full
of enthusiasm and inspiring ideas on how to make this
run smoothly and be one of the best ever. With all the
changes taking place we have so much more to learn. A
very important proposal will be presented to our Brothers
at our MI Convention in Milwaukee. (I hope you
have already registered for this also. I know hotels are
going fast.) It is so important to get true and accurate information
on the One Moose proposal. In attending the
conference, you will get all updated information from
Director General Scott Hart and the ‘Stand as One’
Committee as well as reports from all our hard-working
committee members.
As you are working on nominations for your new officers
and chairmen, please keep in mind they must be strong
and dedicated as they are going to be processing possible
changes to come. It will be important that correct and
accurate information and Moose International communications
be shared with all Chapter members.
Congratulations to all who received your Academy of
Friendship call cards! Increasing membership is so vital
to our future. Your commitment a dedication has advanced
you into the first honor of the Women of the Moose. 
I hope you are as excited receive it as I am to
preside over your ceremony. I can’t thank you all enough
for your dedication and commitment to our great
Fraternity.

Laurie Nelson, Deputy Grand Regent                       3/1/2020
