|Moose Community Service... Is all about taking
care of our Children, Seniors and our local
community. Every year we donated funds to the
Mooseheart Endowment Fund, Moose Charities
and a host of other very worthy events and
programs. During the year we put on an Easter
Egg hunt for hundreds of kids and we cook and
color over 12,000 eggs for the Counties Easter
Egg hunt. We support the Special Olympics,
Safe Surfin, the Tommy moose Program and
this past year we manned a Red Cross shelter
operation during flooding for 11 days. Twenty
five of our members supported the Relay for
Life and we cleaned up a portion of highway 99
every month. Through countless hours and
personal expenses, many Moose members
spend time supporting many worthy causes in
our community. We would just like to say thank
you to all of our Moose members who spent
time supporting our community and our kids
and seniors! You really make a difference.
It should come as no surprise that the fraternity
that cares enough about children to make
Mooseheart a reality enters the 21st century with
protection of children who use the Internet as a
As of the beginning of 2008, the Moose have
entered into a partnership with the Safe Surfinâ€™
USA Foundation, a Virginia-based organization
which has been a leader in attempts to keep the
Internet a safe place for children to explore.

|The "Proof of Our Value":
The Moose fraternal organization was founded in the late 1800s by Dr. John
Henry Wilson with the modest goal of offering men an opportunity to gather
socially. It was reinvented during the first decade of the 20th century into an
organization of men and women that could provide protection and security for a
largely working-class membership. For a quarter-century the Moose had
directed its efforts almost completely toward Mooseheart and Moosehaven.
With discharged WWII Veterans driving Moose membership to nearly 800,000
members, Moose International Director General Giles set out to broaden the
organization's horizons. In 1949 he conceived and instituted what was to
become the third great Moose endeavor of the modern era, the Civic Affairs
program (later renamed Community Service). Giles explained his rationale:
"Only three institutions have a God-given right to exist in a community, the home,
the church and the school. The rest of us must be valuable to the community to
warrant our existence, and the burden of proof of our value is on us."
The kaleidoscope of all that is Moose Community Service was organized into a
“Five-Point Program” in the early 1990s, then expanded in mid-decade to the
“Six-Point Program” with its familiar logo at top. The Community Service
program has since flourished into a myriad of humanitarian efforts on the local
Lodge level, as well as fraternity-wide projects including the Moose Youth
Awareness Program, Tommy Moose Program, and Youth Sports. As of May 1,
2008 the Moose International Six-Point Program covers service and donations
to Special Olympics and the Bedford Virginia based Safe Surfin' Foundation
which seeks to safeguard our Children from Internet Crime and educate the
public about Internet crimes against children.
The Moose International Department of Fraternal Programs recognizes
outstanding community service efforts by individual lodges. During the latter
part of May each year, the International Community Service Committee meets to
judge all lodges that have earned four "Superior" ratings during the recently
completed fiscal year. The top Lodges are recognized as recipients of the
annual awards and a plaque of appreciation indicating the Lodge name and
number and the level of award achieved.
Community Service is a vital part of our organization. Not only is it important to
our Lodge, but it is important and meaningful to the ones that we help. Even the
smallest of things we do such as driving an elderly person to the doctor or
volunteering to cut their grass or doing repairs, counts as community service
and the Lodge gets credit with Moose International. So remember to let the
Community Service Chairperson, or the Lodge office know of any service or
volunteer work that you do or have done. The basic information that is needed
is the number of members involved, number of miles driven, and the number of
hours spent on the project.
All activities and events referred to on this
Website and in our Moose newsletter are
available to members in good standing and their
qualified guests only.
