Time is flying by, the new fiscal begins May 1 the same day your new or slightly used officers begin their terms. I hope that your nominating committee will take their responsibility seriously and choose only the best people for the open positions and committees. Lodge and Chapter life will be so much easier if you complete your election process properly.

Now two words about retention. Try Harder. This is a difficult, time consuming job and it takes a special person or persons to be successful at it. You all have that person somewhere in your Lodge, Chapter or Moose Legion. Please use the help offered by the Higher Degree committees in your area. Call Buddy Dugger in the north or Bob Robinson in the south for more info. We all try hard to bring in new members, now we must Try Harder to keep them.

Have you looked at the calendar lately? It is jam packed with ways to have fun or to get educated. Want to go fishing, play pool ,golf? It’s all in there; all we need is you. The same holds true for Moose International sports. Bowling, darts, horseshoes, poker, golf and more. You can find a link to International in the Courier.

Education is a must for all of us especially if you hold a leadership role. You will learn how to perform your duties properly from your very talented instructors and the conversations and questions from your classmates and in many cases it’s required. See you there.

Are you making plans to attend Florida Days at Moosehaven? This is a great opportunity to visit the campus and enjoy a great party. It really is a bunch of fun. While you are making plans please don’t miss the Midyear conference in April. Education, fun, fraternalism all in one place. Sign up now. But wait, there is more. Moose International convention in Reno is the place to be. See the website for more information.

Let’s try to do something nice or offer an encouraging word to someone each day. It’s good for the soul.

Take care and be safe

What a fantastic time to be a Moose member. Our lodges are growing and evolving. We have the Florida Moose Association MidYear conference in April and The Moose International Annual convention at the end of June.  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. Now’s the time to have fundraising events in your lodge to help defer some of the expense of sending your representatives to both.

I want to thank everyone for shaking off what has and continues to be a very challenging past few years. The recent hurricane once again demonstrated the fraternalism that runs deep in our lodges. We here at the FMA continue to lead the way in raising funds for right here in Florida with our Emergency Relief Fund that helped so many of our lodges. We also support all of Moose International’s special projects at Moosehaven and Mooseheart. 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.

Our Moose fiscal year ends soon. Check where your lodge is and what it may still need to do to end the year as a Premier Lodge award winner.

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
