Dear Brothers and Co-Workers,
In case you haven’t heard, we have a new short-term membership campaign going on for the months of June, July and August. Loyal Order members will receive a California/Nevada lapel pin for signing up a member during these months. We’re also giving away two Life Memberships: one for the men and one for the women. For every Loyal Order member you sign up during these months, your name goes into a hopper to win. Remember, this is for signing up new/former Loyal Order members. Great news! Ladies, you’re now being included in the weekly drawing of $50.00 for signing up a Loyal Order member.
Your Association is also winding up it’s final fundraiser for this year. Raffle tickets were distributed to all the District Presidents, who in turn were to distribute them to the Lodges. Our goal is to end this year with an increase in assets. Please be sure to purchase your tickets.
Once I got past the heat and humidity, the International Convention in Tampa, Florida wasn’t bad. I want to thank the Mighty 190 and Hesperian 174 Moose Legion jurisdictions for representing California/Nevada in the International Moose Legion Ritual Competition. Thank you!
Special congratulations go out to Fred Reichelt, who was appointed to the Mooseheart Board of Directors, Rick Balthazar, who was appointed to the International Risk Management Committee and Bridget Robinson, the women’s incoming Deputy Grand Regent. And we have our three new Deputy Supreme Governors; Carl Murphy, R.J. Barcalow and Dan Papp. Congratulations gentlemen. Derrick Morris is continuing on with the International Heart of the Community Committee. I’d also like to give a shout out to Bob Sypnieski for all his years of service on the Moosehaven Board of Directors.
Congratulations to Jerry O’Connor – Moose International Lifetime Achievement Award winner!
California/Nevada really ROCKS!
In closing, I’d like to say Thank You, to each and every one of you for continuing to pay your dues, participating in Lodge/Chapter activities and most importantly, supporting Mooseheart and Moosehaven. God Bless all of you, our troops and our first responders.
