  Presidents Message November 2022

The very first thing I must do is to thank the members of the FMA for electing me as your 2022/2023 FMA President. It is great honor to represent all of you and I will do my very best to continue to lead us into the bright future before us. None of this would have been possible without the support of my wife Deb and my mentors who have and continue to guide me along the way and try to keep me out of trouble.

This will be an exciting year. There are so many new and interesting events coming up along with the successful standards. Give pickle ball and pool a try. How about corn hole, or darts, or let’s go fishing. These are just a few of the fun things going on along with all the great events put on by the Lodges, Chapters and Moose Legions. Besides the joy of spending time with friends, these events raise funds for our children, our seniors and much needed improvements on each campus.

Once again we have a very successful group of Chair people. Thankfully some have been doing this work for some time and a few are new but very competent. It is this dedicated group of people that, day in and day out, keep the FMA informed and running in the right direction. If you have an idea or an event that could be beneficial and fun please see me and I will get you to the committee chair person. Have you noticed that our appointed officers and District Presidents now have women and men as leaders? These men and women are our future leaders and deserve our full respect, support and a big thank you for stepping up. I heard that the holidays are coming. So what do we get for the wife, the kids, who do we over tip, how do we get the pine needles out of the rug? Why is the tinsel following the cat and why did the dog pee on the tree? Again!! Seriously why not give the kids, relatives and your best neighbor a membership. The price is right and, as you know, the benefits are extraordinary.

In closing Deb and I want to send our sympathy and understanding of the grief many of our members are suffering through as a result of hurricane Ian. We will heal, we will take a deep breath and we will come back better because we are Moose Strong and “We will Make It Happen.”

By now everyone knows of the devastation left behind by Hurricane Ian. Many of our lodges are damaged. We are still accessing at this time.  Thank you for your immediate response and aid. However, as we know, its been 4 years since Hurricane Michael hit the Panhandle area and we still have two lodges rebuilding.

Many of our members are doing their best to get their lodges up and running and helping the community while dealing with the loss of their own property and a huge upheaval in their own lives. Let’s keep them in our thoughts and prayers as the long days of recovery are just starting.

So please if possible give to the Florida Moose Association Emergency Relief Fund. In this way we will be able to help now and in the long term as the lodges rebuild. Donations should be sent to State Secretary Dan O'Neal at PO Box 2863, Sanford, FL 32772. Make checks payable to the FMA and earmarked for the Emergency Relief Fund.


Let your light shine as an inspiration to humanity and be the reason someone believes in the goodness of people
