  Presidents Message September

As our FMA year comes to an end, we start a new beginning with a lot to look forward to. We will “Make it Happen” in the 2022-2023 moose year. As the Florida Moose members always come through to achieve even greater heights. This year went fast, which make if clear that when you are happy doing what you love to do time does flies faster. For me that was the honor of being your president. I have never felt prouder to be “Moose” than representing the greatest association of the Moose. The members of the Florida Moose Association never stop amazing me. Thank you for that honor.

      We need to keep our ducks in a row to stay with this positive direction. Activities in our lodges is one of the main keys to our success. The Lodges, Chapters and Moose Legions who have activities going on are the ones on top. So, when you compare you lodges numbers and find them not changing, then change the activity. Show everyone some fun and they will come, I promise you.

      Congratulations to the new Fellows and the Golden Gavel recipients coming out of our convention. Well desired by all. Thank you for your efforts as you support our children at Mooseheart and our seniors at Moosehaven. I also hope many of you went to the pilgrim ceremony Friday night at the convention to congratulate this year’s newest Pilgrims. Our staff does an outstanding job.  

      Please remember as you read this edition of the Courier it has been a year since we started the Booster Program for the courier. So, if you were a supporter last year it is time to renew, including me. And if not, please consider being a booster. It can be you personally, as a Lodge, Chapter, Moose Legion or your private company. This helps get lots of Moose news around the state.

     I’m sure we will come out of the annual convention with a renewed sense of pride and commitment to our mission. Please share that wealth of information at your lodge. As it is meant to be shared and you as attendees are our ambassadors

    I will share a quote from Bob Saindon; “If it is says Moose on the outside, It must be Moose on the inside” That really sums it up. Thank you, Bob.

    My wife Terri along with all the welcoming moose members across this great state of Florida has made this past year above memorable. Thank you all and hope to see you at the lodge.

Chuck Plourde, FMA President.

Regional Manager September, 2022

It was certainly great to see everyone at the recent FMA convention. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did.

If you didn’t make it please consider coming to the Mid-Year conference. I feel we have succeeded in making our conventions more fun and the meals more enjoyable. Both will continue to improve.

It’s a great time to get together with old friends and make new ones. I can guarantee that Mid-Year will also include another fun night with the 5 / 25 club. Make your plans now and start having the fund raisers in your lodges to be able to send your representatives.

I want to thank each of you for your efforts to make our lodges the best they can be. Please continue to do so and let’s try to put an emphasis on retention. Let’s get text messages and emails out that include the Quick pay link.

Thank you and see you soon.

Roy Rawlings, FMA Liaison
