FMA President message May 2022
Wow what a great Moose year. Our very first complete year as” Moose”, men and women working together side by side. We accomplished a lot with those few words, “working together.” Florida has a plus in membership for the 2021-2022 moose year! Congratulations to everyone. New membership production was off the charts, and yes; we still need to do much better with retention. A clean, Friendly and active lodge is the key.
As I am writing this before Mid-Year, I want to thank the members that attended and encourage everyone to bring back the wealth of information you learned at the conference to your lodge. Please remember, all the Moose International videos present are available on the MI web site. They are a great tool to bring to your lodge and show on your monitors for all members to see. Our community service project for the veterans clothing created a lot of interest. I’m positive it was very successful.
We now need to focus on the new Moose year. Election should be completed and new plans for a successful year for your lodge, chapter or jurisdiction. Please give a warm welcome to your new officers and support them as we need to continue to work as a team. It is inspiring to men and women on the same board of officers. Moose Proud!
With this new year, we as FMA members get to host the Moose International Convention right here in Orlando. Let us show them the “Big Green Machine” is here for them with a 100% representation from every lodge in the FMA. Our Children at Mooseheart and our seniors at Moosehaven are depending on us to keep building on the greatest fraternity “The Moose”. Remember, Florida seats are front left of the convention room. The 100th year anniversary of Moosehaven will be celebrated on Saturday the July 2nd During the MI convention. Busses will run from Orlando to Moosehaven for everyone to attend.
With all this moose excitement happening here in Florida it easy to miss something. So, on behave of the FMA executive Board of officers I am taking this time to tell you as members of the FMA and the Moose fraternity your dedication to Mooseheart and Moosehaven is beyond words. It is true sisterhood and brotherhood at its best. God Bless each and every one of you.
My wife Terri and myself are still in the process of our moose hopping, and what great times we are having, so we hope to see you at the lodge. We love our Moose family!
Safe travels and I hope to say hi in Orlando.
Chuck Plourde, FMA President.
I hope everyone that was able to join us for the FMA MidYear enjoyed themselves. I know I always look forward to the chance to gather with members from all over the State-Renew old friendships and create new ones.
Please take advantage of the very unique opportunity to once again gather at the upcoming Moose International Convention right here in Orlando. Just a short drive for any of us, it’s right in the middle of our great state. Do not have the time or opportunity to be there for the entire event? Be sure to join us for a day. Attend a session and get to meet the Moose International leadership and hear them lay out their plans for the future of our great fraternity. Meet members of your fraternal family from all walks of life and from every corner of this International organization.
The last time we had it in Tampa we had the bragging rights of being able to say that every lodge in the state was represented. If you have ever been to an International convention you know that everyone from Florida sits to the front left of the stage and are expected to make noise. So let’s be sure that we get someone from every lodge there to not only make that noise with the pride of knowing that every lodge is represented, but also that every lodge will be starting the fiscal year with the knowledge that because they were represented they will have the opportunity to be a Premier Lodge. They will also be eligible for whatever grants that Moose International may be making available to lodges that were there.
Don’t call it a dream. Call it a plan.
As always, Thank You for working hard each day to make our lodges the best they can be.
Roy Rawlings, FMA Liaison
