“Moose – Build Our Foundation.”
We are starting the second quarter of the Moose Year and we are also getting ready to start the new FBMA Year. I want to congratulate and encourage the new Association Officers, District Presidents and District Officers that will be starting in their endeavors at the close of the Annual Convention. I hope that your year is a big success.
Speaking of the convention, I surely trust that all have their reservations and pan on attending. We are doing something new this year with a Statewide Pilgrim Presentation of Friday night. We have done these before but never on a Friday of the Convention. Our Keynote Speaker for this event and the LOOM Official Visitor is our Director General Scott Hart. I am sure you will want to attend this event to hear Scott’s address.
The WOTM Official Visitor is Grand Chancellor Barb McPherson. I am sure all the ladies will want to hear her speak and I know she will have a great message for all and will share a great deal of knowledge. Be sure to make both Scott and Barb welcome at our convention.
Make sure to bring your donations for the Moosehaven Centennial Project to the convention. We are also collecting checks for candy for the Annual Halloween Parade at Moosehaven. Make these checks payable to Moosehaven and earmark for candy.
We had a successful last year in membership having a gain in the Association and I see no reason we cannot repeat that again this year. We need to make sure every unit has a local membership campaign and not just depend on the programs of Moose International and the Association. The more promotion the better so let’s just do it.
Remember that you can make a difference in the life of someone else, what a better way than to support Mooseheart and Moosehaven. Thank you for all you do for our children, seniors, your Lodge, Chapter and Moose Legion and your fraternity.
See you in Orlando.
