Hello my sisters and brothers. I want to start off with a heartfelt thank you for all your hard work for our Mooseheart children and our seniors at Moosehaven. Our membership is looking great: yes retention should be better, but we are making the progress we are looking for. As of the beginning of February, we are showing a gain of 3616 members. WOW, that’s great. Most Florida Lodges are showing an increase in membership. This is a result of your hard work with the tools we have been given by Moose International. Please remember to keep up your friendly manner in our Lodges to make all our members, new and old, welcome in their Moose home. This will help close that back door.
We should be going into March with excitement of what is ahead. First, we have Florida Days at Moosehaven, hosted by the FMA of course. Your District President has the tickets on sale at $10.00 each, which include BBQ lunch and a chance to win some money. Come out and celebrate with our residents at Moosehaven. If you have not been there, this is the best chance to see Moosehaven in its glory. Remember, they are turning 100 this year.
Then we spring into action for the FMA 62nd Mid Year Conference April 21st thru the 24th. Remember, this conference is an educational and informational meeting. Registration is open on the FMA website along with a link for room reservations at the Rosen Plaza Hotel. We have an exciting agenda for all. Our workshops are all set in place for a wealth of information. Please attend as many as you can. Remember, knowledge gives you the power to succeed. We have also added a 5/25 club event on Friday night, with entertainment, for club members. Please check out the agenda as it is presented and make your plans as soon as you can. The hotel fills up fast.
Our Lodges should have already begun the election process. Please follow the “Election of Officers” handbook. It spells it all out from nominations to the elections and remember your Territory Manager is there for your guidance, so please use them. They are here to help.
As I come to the end, I also want to excite you about the Moose International Convention that will be in Orlando June 30th through July 4th. With Moosehaven turning 100, there will be a lot of excitement in the air. And remember, #1 Florida should be 100% represented by every Lodge in FMA.
Thank you for your support for our children at Mooseheart and our seniors at Moosehaven. Like Terri and I, once they are in your heart, they are there to stay.
God Bless from Terri and myself and we will see you at the Lodge.
Chuck Plourde, FMA President.
What a fantastic time to be a Moose member in Florida. We have the Florida Moose Association Mid Year conference in April and the Moose International Annual convention at the end of June — both right here in Orlando, Florida. I hope everyone has already gone online and registered for both. If not please do so. We want to show everyone that we are so very proud to be a Moose and even more proud to be a Florida Moose.
But the greatest part is both are right in the middle of our beautiful state. Everyone can attend even if it’s just for a day. So come take advantage of this excellent opportunity and get to know other Moose members from all over as you enjoy the festivities.
I want to thank everyone for shaking off what has and continues to be a very challenging past year or two. Our membership is growing, our Lodges are prospering and you all have been supporting Moose Charities in a fashion that can only be done by the members of a great fraternity. I want to end this by saying thank you for working hard every day to improve our Lodges and our fraternity to make them the best they can be.
Roy Rawlings, FMA Liaison
