Supporting veterans is something that has always been important to the Moose. So, it is no surprise that our newest initiative, the “Valued Veterans” program, has drawn so much interest from members, lodges and chapters. The focus of this program is on the recognition and support of Moose veterans with an emphasis on their ongoing service to their fraternal units and communities through the Moose. The program’s tag phrase captures this well: “Moose Members Serving Then . . . and NOW!” This approach simultaneously honors our veterans while also highlighting the Fraternity’s commitment to community service. The International Heart of the Community Committee approached the planning of this program with passion, enthusiasm, and personal insights, as several members are veterans themselves. The goal was to deliver more recognition and support to our own members who are veterans and to provide Lodges and Chapters with the necessary tools to make the best possible impact on all who have served.

When this ambitious program was previewed at the 2016 Moose Convention in St. Louis, many voiced strong opinions about elements they wanted to see included in the program. Obviously, the main focus of the Moose is our fraternal programs, including Mooseheart, Moosehaven and Heart of the Community activities; and though we don’t have the expertise or resources to be a full-fledged veteran’s services organization, we know we can still provide recognition and support to our veteran members who have made a positive impact on society through their service and through our Fraternity. Admittedly, this program may not be all things to all veterans, but we will strive to serve our veterans to the very best of our ability. Our members’ strong sentiments only confirm that they are passionate about this cause, and do want to see the program succeed – and therefore, we are confident that it will. Suggestions and/or questions can be emailed to Cherie Mondrella. Review the rest of this section of the website to discover more aspects about the program including how you can “opt in” if you’re a veteran, or how you can participate even if you are not.

Want to know what you can do to help your lodge??
There is always things that need to be done down at your lodge. It doesn’t take a lot of time, and doesn’t have to be a huge project.
Did you know that volunteers maintain the grounds, plant & water the flowers, upkeep the courtyard area? These are all things that can be done without asking. If you see the flowers need to be “tended” to, or you see stray items laying around, please take a moment to help keep your lodge sparkling. We can’t do it without your help.
We also need a cook for Thursday night meals. This is our family karaoke night and we really would like to keep the dinners going. It doesn’t need to be every Thursday, how about once a month? Please reach out to Jack if you would like to volunteer or know of someone (or even yourself) to help us out. We need you!!!

Please Take Note...
The Loyal Order of Moose is regarded as "The Family Fraternity" because we offer affordable family-friendly activities at the lodge and in the Social Quarters (SQ). In accordance with this policy and OLCC and Lottery restrictions, minor children, under the direct supervision of a MEMBER (or qualified guest) parent or guardian, are welcome in the SQ (anywhere but at the bar or near the lottery area) when we have pot-lucks, jam sessions, weeknight meals, "Family Karaoke" on Thursdays, Sunday Breakfast, BBQ's and other activities, until 9:00 PM (or later on Family Karaoke night only). Children under 21 are allowed (per Department of Justice Guidelines) to play Bingo if they are supervised by a MEMBER parent or guardian (Adult non-members are not permitted to play Bingo). Of course, it is the responsibility of the parent or guardian to monitor the conduct of the children and to drink responsibly, if at all.

You, the member, regardless of the part you play in the order, are the MOST important factor.
This was written in 1987 by Moose International and it is as true 27 years later as it was then!
You, the member, regardless of the part you play in the order, are the MOST important factor. Although we elect our officers as our leaders and have chairman who perform their duties, we need the talents and abilities of each member of this order.
Every member who joins the order does so for a specific purpose. Some enjoy the structure of the meetings and want to take an active part in becoming an Officer or Chairman. Some may be interested in serving on a committee but do not want to attend meetings regularly. You the member are an important part of this com-mittee because you bring new and interesting ideas to the group.
Some enjoy attending the social activities such as dinners, dances, karaoke (added since 1987) doings arts and crafts etc. Others join to participate in sporting activities such as bowling, golfing, pool, shuffleboard, card games, etc. These member display the pleasure they derive by taking an active part in the social activities of our order.
Some just joined because they believe in the concept of our order. They may never attend a meeting or social function, but they pay their dues because they too want to support our Twin Cities.
Regardless of your reason for joining, you are an extremely important asset to this order.
Regardless of the role you play, your talents and abilities are appreciated. Remember your dues help support our children at Mooseheart and our seniors at Moosehaven.
You have chosen to be a member of this order. Enjoy every minute of your membership, using your talents to their fullest.
Be proud to you, the member! Let everyone know that you are a member of the greatest fraternity in the world—THE MOOSE and you are proud.
Remember: A member who works with their hands is a laborer. A member who works with their brain is a craftsman. A member who works with their hands, their brains and their heart is an artist.
Keep in mind:
God has given you two ends
With a common link
With one we sit
With the other we think
Success in life
Depends on which we choose
Heads you win
Tails you lose
The message is simple. You the member, regardless of what your role in this order are IMPORTANT to OUR kids at Mooseheart and our seniors at Moosehaven. We need to retain your membership so we can provide for the care of future generations.
