Surely You Know Some Child That Could Benefit From Mooseheart!

          After many years working admissions to Mooseheart and worrying when we did reach a point where there were NO children from California or Nevada, I am happy to report that we now have two!
Cheryl Volden has accompanied Autumn Campbell from California and then Gabriel Spivey from Nevada all the way to Mooseheart!  She worked their cases, following and helping them through the information needed for acceptance at Mooseheart.  I appreciate all the work she did and thank her profusely.
         Please keep your eyes open for more children who could benefit from a life at Mooseheart!  Placing a child at Mooseheart is one of the most rewarding things you will ever experience in the Moose.  Caring people like Cheryl will help you every step of the way.  If you think it may be too expensive for your Lodge or your Chapter, ask for a hand from your District and Legion.  I know they will help.  Check with your schools and churches - they may have some families that need us.  I guarantee it will increase the pride in your Lodge and Chapter.
