So, I am a member of the local Moose Lodge. In fact, I am a board member of our local chapter. While it is true that it is a great place to get cheap drinks, it is not the only thing it has going for it. Moose Lodge’s all around the US and Canada and even a lodge in England all help support Mooseheart Child City. Mooseheart is a city in Illinois that provides children that have no where else to go with a home and school and support. There is never a question when a child is in need. The reasons kids are there varies widely. Mooseheart gives them a very structured community. All children must take ROTC and learn a trade once they are old enough so that they can make a living once they leave there. They have sports teams, every after school activity you can imagine. It really is a wonderful place. And this is of no cost to the children or their families. Everything is provided for them. Any member of the Moose is allowed to visit there to see what goes on, and they are encouraged to do so. I believe there are people there that will give you the grand tour when you visit.
And the Moose also have a retirement community for their members called MooseHaven near Jacksonville, FL. Again everything is provided for the people that retire there. Housing, food, activities, you name it.
Becoming a member of the Moose helps with both of these endeavors, as does any function you might attend or drink you may drink at your local lodge. The Moose are a very giving group and of all the lodges I have visited, people have been super friendly in every one of them.
If this is something that interests you, please check out their website www.mooseintl.org for more details about it, or find your local chapter and check it out. I am inviting anyone in the Orlando area to join me for an orientation meeting. I will be happy to go with you, and would be happy to sponsor you!
Have a Scentsational Day!
