From the President April 2021

                                  

To my Brothers

Here we are in April only a short thirty days till the end of our 2020/2021 Moose Year and the start of Moose.  Yes things are changing we will be truly ONE MOOSE, where all members are the same. I believe as we move forward our new Moose will only become greater, stronger, while protecting our children at Mooseheart and seniors at Moosehaven.

It was great to see our members at the FMA Mid-Year Conference, a lot on information was provided by Moose International on One Moose as we will become the MOOSE. Our District President’s reports were great; these people work hard to delivery information of changes and programs within Moose at each district meeting. Their time and work goes on all month long throughout the year.  Then all our Chairpersons day after day giving of their time to promote our causes, they are the best. I personally want to thank all of you for your hard work and caring for Mooseheart, Moosehaven and each other.

Look out Cincinnati and the Moose International Convention:  The Big Green Machine is coming and with it come the Largest State Association within the Moose! We are not only Moose Proud we are Florida Moose Proud, the Best of the Best, Second to None, We are ONE MOOSE!

We still have work that must be completed our financial commitments to Mooseheart the “MAC” building for our children for a better education and Moosehaven our very own Florida Residential Home for our seniors. This three year 2-2-2 commitment was almost One Million Dollars. I challenge every Lodge, Chapter, District and Moose Legion to come up with a project to raise funds for the MAC & Florida Home. Any amount will help us to complete our commitments. Please remember to remit the collected funds to the Florida Moose Association c/o Dan O’Neil, Secretary. We can make it happen with all of your help.

Thank You all for everything you do to provide for our children, seniors and each other see you at a lodge soon. God Bless.

Larry Cundiff Regional Manager March 2020

 I think we all agree 2020 was a year we hope to never repeat. St. Patrick’s Day a year ago we received the State Executive Order to cease operations and the following year was one of Challenges. As always the Florida lodges and chapters met these challenges with innovative ideas to keep our Units operating. We have brought our Membership and Financial Programs into the internet. The changes produced challenges, but as always you addressed them and were successful. We are still signing members and the Retention Committees are contacting members to encourage them to renew their dues. Florida has always been a strong finisher at the end of the year and we continue this trend. We are a month away from the implementation of the ONE MOOSE Concept and FMA continues to lead the way. We have approved the Association By-Laws and Policies in March. The changes to the Membership and Financial Programs are essential to support the One Moose Concept.

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, Lodges and our Communities. If we do that our Fraternity will grow. God bless Mooseheart, Moosehaven, the Moose Fraternity and most of all you.

 April 2021

Our FMA Mid-Year Conference was a huge success.  We say thank you to those that joined us and for those unable to, we missed you.  We look forward to when we ALL can be together again soon. Hopefully with the vaccines becoming more available things will continue to improve and we will have no attendance restrictions for our September Annual Conference. Stay tuned for more on that in the coming months.

Before our conference began many members enjoyed fun night on Thursday by playing Bingo, Texas Holdem, Spin the Wheel for a Bottle, and a Lunar Plunge.  I participated in the lunar “NERD” plunge this year, it was a first for me and I have to say it was fun.  It just goes to show that YES, we work hard to help raise funds to support Mooseheart & Moosehaven and we have a lot of fun doing it. 

Our WOTM session was a bittersweet moment,  I enjoyed being the Officer in Charge and feel that we had a great session. Although when adjourning the meeting it hit me that this would be our last WOTM session held at our conferences.  During our Academy of Friendship Ceremony, we had 118 new FRIENDS that were conferred.  Congratulations to All and we hope that you continue your involvement and earn all degrees for the WOTM.

With us becoming One Moose on May 1, 2021 we will have general sessions at our conferences going forward where all members will be in the same sessions.  Let us embrace this change and take to heart our new theme for the coming year - “Stronger Together”.

The WOTM have mentioned that “Rally Days” will take place each year going forward.  Here in Florida our Chapter Advocate, Gloria Petrea will be in charge of organizing our “Rally Days”.  Gloria has selected a committee to work with her on this and I am sure we will be hearing more information as it becomes available.

Finally, MEMBERSHIP is the hot topic for all of us.  Sure, with the pandemic restrictions it has been a tough year but we as Moose Members are even tougher.  We have a few weeks left in this 2020-2021 Moose year, so let us do a final push to help increase our membership.  I would like to encourage each coworker to offer their assistance to make calls to those in arrears, invite a friend or family member to join, consider giving the gift of membership for a birthday or holiday gift and most importantly to remember we must work together in all that we do.

In Friendship,

Rhonda Shockley – Deputy Grand Regent
