Chesapeake Virginia, South Norfolk Loyal Order of Moose #464 and Women of the Moose Chapter #947, had an open Star Recorder Committee Chapter meeting on Wednesday, September 7th 2016 at 7:00 pm with special guests in attendance.  Dr. Shawnia Smiley, principal from Norfolk Highlands Primary school and Luke Marcum and Rebekah Jones from Law Enforcement United were in attendance for presentations to be made this night.  There was lots of excitement in the room this night.

The first presentation was made by Senior Regent Linda Sharp to Dr. Shawna Smiley with lodge donated school supplies for the children at the Norfolk Highlands Primary school.  Dr. Smiley Norfolk Highlands Principal was very gracious in thanking the lodge for its continued support in the community and of her primary school.  Next up was Luke Marcum from Law Enforcement United (LEU), where he gave an impassioned speech on the goals and purpose of the Law Enforcement United program.  At the end of his speech he presented our Past Senior Regent Rena Creff and Past Governor Bobby Smith both awards of recognition of their sponsorship for the 2016 Road to Hope Bicycle Ride where their contributions touched many lives.  It was its seventh year; the ride has brought honor and awareness to fallen law enforcement officers. The ride was to raise money for charities that support those officers’ families.

The night ended with Senior Regent, Linda Sharp, presenting certificates of dedication to Rebekah Jones and Luke Marcum.  We would like to thank all the members that attended this night.  It was a fun and big night for our lodge.  Without members like you, we would not be able to do the work we do!  Thank you for your continued membership.  Click on photos for larger images.
