|The Fellowship Degree of Honor is an honorary Degree of the Loyal Order of Moose. It was first created on August 7, 1918. The Degree is conferred only
upon Moose Legionnaires who are recommended by the Fellows of their Lodge and approved by the Pilgrim Council.
The selection process begins during the month of November, which has been designated by the fraternity as Fellowship Degree Honor Month. This is a
time when special activities are scheduled within Lodges to pay tribute to these dedicated fraternalists. It is also the time when the Fellows of the Lodge
gather to review the service of members of the Moose Legion within their Lodge and, providing the Lodge has received a recommendation form from
their Regional Manager, select a Moose Legionnaire to be recommended for elevation to the Degree of Honor.
The recommendation is highly confidential and is never revealed until such time as the recommended Moose Legionnaire is selected and called by the
Pilgrim Council and subsequently conferred with the Degree of Honor. The opportunity to serve on the Lodge Fellowship Committee is one of the
privileges of being a Fellow. This select group may meet as often as they like to socialize, raise funds for special projects or conduct other business
beneficial to the Degree.
The official regalia of a Fellow is a French-blue blazer featuring the Fellowship logo, coordinated necktie, white shirt and black trousers. The regalia is
worn in its entirety or not at all. The regalia may be worn at any function of the Order and is symbolic of the character and strength that these men provide
to the Moose fraternal structure. A Fellow is also entitled to wear the Fellowship medallion, available through Moose International Catalog Sales and
may be worn at any function of the Order.

|BECOMING A MOOSE LEGIONNAIRE
Congratulations - If you have met the qualifications necessary to become a member of the Moose Legion – the
Degree of Service.
What is the Moose Legion?
Dedicated members of the Loyal Order of Moose continually look for ways to provide even greater service to our
children at Mooseheart and our senior members at Moosehaven. The Moose Legion provides a venue for these
enthusiastic members to direct and lead special programs that accomplish this fraternal mission.
Who belongs to the Moose Legion?
Moose Legionnaires come from all walks of life and occupations. They are leaders in their communities and they
prevail in positions of responsibility and leadership within the Moose fraternity. Each Moose Legionnaire believes
strongly in doing some good thing for someone each day. Membership in the Moose Legion is the stepping stone to
the Honorary Degrees of our Order – the Fellowship Degree of Honor and the Pilgrim Degree of Merit. Being called to
receive these Honorary Degrees within the Loyal Order of Moose is only possible through recognized achievements in
the Lodge and Moose Legion.
Why should I consider joining the Moose Legion? Membership in the Degree of Service offers you additional
opportunities to serve childhood and old age, and opens the door to you and your family for theme parties, sporting
events, community service projects and other unique activities available only to members of the Moose Legion.
Moose Legion Celebrations are held at various Lodges within the jurisdiction of your Moose Legion, and serve as a
means to share ideas and enjoy good times with fellow Moose Legionnaires. Leadership skills may be developed
through the Moose Legion Committee of your Lodge or within the Moose Legion jurisdiction.
How do I join the Moose Legion? Simply complete and sign an application for membership available from any Moose
Legionnaire or click here. Then submit the application, along with the required fee and dues as shown on the
application, to the Moose Legion Secretary or drop it by the office. You will be notified as to the date, time and
location of the next Moose Legion conferral ceremony. Questions? Email YubaCityMoose@Gmail.com
|The official logo of the Council of Higher Degrees is the standing Moose overlaid on six (6) interlocking rings representing the degrees of the
Order. The color of the rings denote the degrees: Pilgrim is gold; Fellowship is French blue, Moose Legion is purple, College of Regents is black,
Academy of Friendship is blue and the Star Recorder is green.
Composition Of Higher Degrees
The Council of Higher Degrees consists of:Members of the Pilgrim Degree of Merit, the Fellowship Degree of Honor, the Moose Legion Degree of
Service, the College of Regents, the Academy of Friendship and the Star Recorders.
Council is a separate and autonomous unit of the Order. The purpose of the Council of Higher Degrees is: To be actively involved in the retention of
Lodge, Chapter and Moose Legion members.
To promote and support the programs of Moose Charities.
To honor all newly elevated members of the higher degrees.
To honor the memories of deceased members of the Council of Higher Degrees.
To promote the programs of the Loyal Order of Moose and Women of the Moose.
To encourage fraternal and social unity, benevolence and charity among all members of the Order.
|The Pilgrim Degree of Merit is the highest honor that can be bestowed upon a member of the Loyal Order of Moose. This Degree is conferred only in the House of
God at Mooseheart, Illinois and comes as a reward for extraordinary service to the Order. This degree was originally created on August 1, 1918.
All Pilgrims of the Order are sent special recommendation forms annually and may recommend any member of the Order, for this Degree, who has attained the
Fellowship Degree of Honor, and meets some other basic minimum qualifications, by submitting this form to the Office of the Director General.
Fellows recommended will then have their record of service evaluated for merit. Those attaining the highest level of service will be presented to the Pilgrim
Consistory “all living Past Supreme Governors“ for their review and approval.
Once the list has been finalized, the approved candidates receive the call to assemble in the House of God for the conferral. The call remains confidential until the
Degree has been conferred.
Special Pilgrim Presentations are then generally scheduled in the Lodges of new Pilgrims, or at an association event, after the conferral. This presentation is
where the new Pilgrim is officially presented with his regalia and is coordinated with the Regional Manager or a Pilgrim Representative from that association.
Family, friends, community leaders, Lodge members, and other Pilgrims of the Order are invited to attend this fraternal tribute.
The official regalia of a Pilgrim is a gold blazer featuring the Pilgrim logo, with coordinated necktie, white shirt and black trousers. A Pilgrim is also entitled to wear
the Pilgrim medallion with gold cord.
This regalia and medallion may be worn at any function of the Order and is symbolic of the dedication, commitment and outstanding service that these men have
provided to the Moose Fraternity.
|CENTENNIAL PLAZA SYMBOLIZES MOOSE FRATERNALISM
Upon entering the front entrance at Mooseheart, one cannot help but notice the
bronze statue of a moose, centered in the middle of the Centennial Plaza. It
stands watch over the grounds with grace, power and dignity. The Plaza was
officially dedicated in 1988 at the 100th International Moose Convention at
Chicago and Mooseheart. The moose statue stands almost 16 feet tall and was
created by world-renowned sculptor Gerard Balciar. The fine details and
true-to-life form of this majestic animal make it a beautiful piece of work.
The Centennial Plaza is surrounded by marble walls with built-in benches. The
name of each Moose state and provincial association appears above each
bench. To help defray the costs of Centennial Plaza, several years after its
construction, Moose members and their families purchased designated one inch
squares in their name.
|To be eligible for advancement to membership in the
Moose Legion, a lodge member must have EITHER:
Held active Lodge membership for a minimum period of six (6)
Sponsored his first (accepted) member into the Order.
