      January 2022 

Happy New year to our brothers and sisters of the “Moose”. I hope everyone had a great holiday season. As we celebrated with family and friends, I’m sure we reminisced about the past year with gratitude, love, smiles and some sorrow. But here is 2022, full of hope and joy as we move forward with our Moose family. Yes 2021 was full of a lot of challenges and as Moose we endured and came out shinning. 2022 is going to be a very exciting year for the FMA as we host the Youth Awareness Student Congress, Moose International Convention and help celebrate Moosehaven’s 100-year birthday. There is work ahead of us to succeed in making these events spectacular. I know our members are up to the challenges before them, as it will take all of us working together in harmony.

Our new membership production is outstanding, but we still need to work on being friendly in our lodges as we work on retention. Always remember retention starts the first time a new member steps into your lodge. Welcome them to the “Moose” family. Thanks to Moose International offer with, no application fee for the month of December on line, gave us a big end of the year push. Thank you to everyone for their efforts with membership. With all of this working for us we will grow our great fraternity “The Moose”. And continue to support our children at Mooseheart and our blessed seniors at Moosehaven.

There will be some exciting events coming out of out full board meeting in January. Such as, our sports committee is working on some new events, including hosting the Moose International first Pickle ball tournament. There is also a fishing excursion in the planning stage. How cool is that. So please keep your eyes on our web site for these and other new events.  

“The Moose” is stronger as one moose because we have men and women in all roles of leadership working toward our success. I know I feel closer to my sisters and brothers with in our new “Moose”. Thank you all for your time and support, it really matters. And remember if you still have questions please talk to your territory managers, as they are here to help.

As president I wish everyone the gift of happiness as we help bring happiness and joy to Mooseheart, Moosehaven and our communities. See you at the lodge.   

Chuck Plourde, FMA President.

Regional Manager January, 2022

I  hope everyone  enjoyed the  recent holiday  season  and is  ready  to get back to work to make  our  lodges the best  they  can be.

We need to start thinking about getting those  nominating  committees  up and  running.  The  elections of  new  officers  for  our  lodges  are not  far  away. With our  talent  pool all but doubled with the  women included there is  no  reason you cannot  find good lodge  members  to  serve  in every  office  of  the board.

Registration  for  the Moose  International convention  is open!!!!

Go to  Mooseintl.org and get  registered.  We  should  have someone  from every  lodge  at this  wonderful location  right here  in Orlando Florida.   Let’s  show everyone a  big  Florida welcome.  After all, we  are  second to none and we  want everyone to know  it.

Now is  the time to  start fundraising events  in your  lodge  to help offset the cost  of  sending those  representatives.  You can have a  nice  event for  members  to  come to  and  help defer some of  the cost of  sending  those  members  to  the convention. Sounds  like a  Win  / Win to  me.

But before we get too  far  ahead of  ourselves,  remember  we will be having the FMA state  midyear  in  Orlando as  well.  This  will take place on  April  21st until the 24th.  We are  working hard  to  make these events  more fun  for  all  that attend. I’m sure registration  will be open on  the  Floridamoose.com  website soon  if  not already by the time you read this.

Until then  I  will see  you at  your  lodge or  some other Moose function.
 

Remember:   When you feel like quitting, think about why you started
