MOOSEHAVEN CENTENNIAL PROJECT


Hi everyone. ISN’T IT GREAT TO BE A MOOSE!!! Your CMNA Special Projects Committee is back and ready to introduce you to Moose Charities new major project and the California/Nevada Moose Association’s plan to raise and donate our minimum share of the cost. So here we go with the Who, What, When, Where and How.

WHO? The Who be You. As the leaders of the Lodges, Districts and Council of Higher Degrees that make our Association Fraternal Units (FRU’s), we count on you to motivate your membership to plan, organize and execute fundraising activities to reach or exceed the Goal. And do not forget the Who includes all committees as well as Individual members, at all levels of the Association. We have also invited our partners at the International level, WOTM Chapters and Moose Legion Jurisdictions, for their support.

WHAT? The Project consists of building a new, state of the art, three story, 105 single and double apartment living facility at an estimated cost of 10 million dollars. For additional information, conception drawings, and details, see pages 8 & 9 of the February-March Edition of the Moose Magazine.

WHEN? The time is now. The Project received it final approval in January at the International level.

WHERE? It will be constructed on our City of Contentment grounds at Moosehaven.

WHY? Facts and Statistics indicate a large growth in our retired population in the coming years. In order to prepare and provide for our Moose Senior population retirement needs we must start now so when they need our help we will be there and ready to provide for them.

HOW? This is where the WHO which is YOU, both collectively and as Individuals comes in. It is up to US, the can do Association, to take our share and Gid’er Done.

At the Midyear Conference the Association Board committed to a minimum donation to the Project of $150,000 over the next three years. There are currently 149 Chartered FRU’s in the California/Nevada

Association. This means that the Minimum donation expectation from each Unit per year is $335.00 per year. Sounds like a lot, however it isonly $27.92 a month and $0.92 a day. There are some FRU’s that throw that amount or more money away in recyclable materials, every day! Have someone do a 50/50 fundraising drawing for the Project once a month at a Unit gathering and send half or $27.92 to Moose Charities for the Project. However it takes participation by ever FRU to make it happen. So DO YOUR SHARE or more. So now you have completed your fundraiser, turned the money in and received a receipt. At this point we recommend that a check be cut by immediately and Mailed to Moose Charities, the money belongs to them, not the FRU. It also help keep the funds from becoming comingled with the FRU’s and inadvertently not being available.

Checks are to be made out to Moose Charities ONLY and be sent to 155 S. International Drive, Mooseheart, IL.; 60539-1000. In order to receive proper credit for the donation the following needs to be written in the Memo section of the check, CNMA-MHN Cent. Proj.; which is the mnemonic abbreviation of California/Nevada Moose Association-Moosehaven Centennial Project.

In closing we will share with you two quotes that were used recently on of a fundraising mailing from Moose Charities:

   “YOU ARE THE FUTURE OF THE CENTENNIAL PROJECT … ONE                                   DONATION AT A TIME.

Remember the ten most important two letter words in the English language:

                          “IF IT IS TO BE, IT IS UP TO ME!”

We wish to Thank all those who have participated in our past Programs and encourage those that have not to do so. Remember if you need help, please do not hesitate to contact us Contact information can be found on the CNMA website at www.ca-nvmoose.org.

Fraternally, you’re A to Z CNMA Major Projects Committee: Mike Aldrich, Bob Bakman Chairman, Chuck Barber, Charlie Bright, Leonard Chapman, Andy Higgins, Bob Inderbieten, Gary McGrath, Russ Nelson, Bill Thompson and Joe Zenkus

 








      COMMITTEE MID-YEAR CONFERENCE REPORT

      Committeemen: Mike Aldridge, Chuck Barber, Leonard Chapman, Mark Dickey, Bill Farley, John Hughes, Bob Inderbieten, Gary McGrath, Russ Nelson, Bill Thompson, Leonard Vyfvinkel and Joe Zenkus

      As most of you already know we are in the final stages of the California Nevada Moose Association (CNMA) three year $250,000.00 Moosehaven Centennial Project and based on information received from Moose Charities on February 21, 2019, the total donations toward this Project were $234,440.20; leaving us with the task of raising additional donations of $15,559.80 to meet our commitment before the cutoff date of our fundraising effort. At this time, that date has not been determined by the Executive Board of the CNMA.

      Fundraising Donation amounts by Units, Activity Groups, Individuals and Misc. are: Councils of Higher Degrees $5,648.14; Districts $21,982.01; Moose Lodges $83,084.36; CNMA $16,780.51; Chapters $46,468.12; Moose Legion Jurisdictions 2,722.00; Moose Riders Activity Group $6,110.00; El Monte Moose Riders Activity Group $250.00; CNMA Past Deputy Grand Regents 152.00; The Individual Moose Women and Men $51,700.16; and finally, a Former Member $5.00.

      The Awards Program is alive and well, briefly we have four levels of Certificates base on donation amounts 1=$335; 2=$670; 3=$1005; 4=$2012; then Small Plaques for 5=$3015+; 6=$4020+; 7=$5025+; 8=+$8030; then for TOP DONORS in the Three Categories of Individual, Unit and Activity Group, Large Plaques. Any additional Certificates earned and all Plagues will be presented at our 86th Annual Convention. Including the Awards, we will be asking Unit Leadership to present on our behalf the totals earned, by Levels are: 1=179; 2=110; 3=77; 4=18; for a total of 384. Plaque Levels are 5=9; 6=2; 7=2; and 8=1.

      Non Participation of the CNMA Fraternal Units (COHD, Districts and Moose Lodges) continues to plague our fundraising efforts for Special Projects and while we understand the woes of financial ups and downs, and while through efforts by many of our leadership and keeping in mind that these efforts have reduced our non-participation from 30% to a current 21.5%, we still question how in three years those Units could not manage to donate something to this Project. So, as we conclude this project and before we start our next Special Project, we feel it is imperative that Full Board (Executive along with District Presidents) help us find some way to resolve this issue of total non-participation.

      We remind you to please make your donation checks to Moose Charities and mail them to 155 S International Dr. Mooseheart, IL 60539-1100; also, be sure to put what fund you wish the donation to be credited, in the memo section.

      Remember: Every donation counts, no matter how small, just send it in and we will reach our Minimum GOAL and maybe a little more. On behalf of our senior’s at Moosehaven, our CNMA and our Committee THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, for your support.

      Fraternally,

      R.R.”Bob” Bakman

      Chairman Moosehaven Centennial Project
