September 23rd is our celebration of those who served our country. If you wish to identify yourself as a veteran there are two methods of doing that.
1. Go online to www.mooseintl.org
a)scroll down and click on "Already a Moose"
b)scroll down to the bottom and find "My Membership Record and click
c) If you haven't registered you Moose I.D. click on that and create an account.
d) Log in with the username and password you just created and click on the "Select" on the line with the Lodge.
e) In the upper right box find the check box for Valued Veteran and click it.
f) Click "Save" and you are done!
2. Enter your name and Moose I.D. on the list kept at the bar and the Lodge Administrator, Bill Horvath will include you in an email to Moose International once a month.
Below is a screen shot of the Membership page. While you are there, check that the rest of the information is correct.


Once members have self-identified, they are eligible to receive a specialized Membership Card, a Valued Veterans pin, and a Certificate of Appreciation. Pins and certificates will be presented at one of two annual recognition nights which will take place in November and April.

Hello fellow Moose and WOTM members. Now that the conventions are behind us, it is time to put some of the ideas into action. The first item from the State convention is that through their Executive Committee a resolution for change in business application was passed. This new operations standard requires us to hold one fund raising event for the Moose Charities each month. Before you get too excited over this issue this was further defined "that from these events 50% of the profit goes to Mooseheart or Moosehaven and 50% stays at the lodge". This is the first time I have heard of this type of split in funds raised. We have an excellent opportunity for the first event of this type, with an Oktoberfest scheduled for September the 29th with the Harbor Town Fest Band. This is a group that has practiced in our social quarters for several Monday nights last month. They perform Oktoberfest's all across the state, and they raise lots of funds for charities. If you could come out on September 29th and bring a friend or neighbor it would help benefit the lodge, Moose and local charities. Second; We are looking to improve our membership retention, if you know so someone with expiring membership, talk with them and encourage them to renew. "a list of these members can be reviewed with Brother Wayne Ashcraft". We are experiencing member ship growth, and several of the new members are under 40 years of age this will contribute to the longevity as Loyal Order of The Moose, Wilmington Lodge 343. We are required to have a 9:00 ceremony in the social quarters each evening. This will be conducted by any officer present on in their absence by your bartender please give generously. Other things I heard at these sessions. Keep the social quarters friendly "Friendliest Place In Town". Everyday should have a fun theme. I am open to suggestions for daily and weekly fun activities. Never allow a meeting to become boring. (They are never very productive)
We are about ready to start work on the building renovations as the roof repairs are almost complete, keep an eye on the calendar and e-mail announcements for planning meetings.
God Bless Mooseheart, Moosehaven and God Bless you.
- Bill
