The Herd Blog is a place to find fun information at the Lodge level with some International and Higher Degree information. If you are looking for information on Lodge Dances, Feasts, Moose Karaoke, Heart of the Community, Convention Info, Youth Awareness, or Community Volunteering opportunities this is your place!

On the second Monday of each month the Hampton Moose Lodge opens its doors and its heart to 90+ Senior Citizens.    These Seniors converge on the Hampton Lodge to play BINGO, but not just any BINGO, they come to play Senior BINGO.   

Senior BINGO is like regular BINGO in many ways, except you must be a Senior Citizen to play and it doesn't cost you a cent, and as a matter of fact we'll even feed you!  Once the doors open the Seniors have time to mingle with each other over coffee.  Winners of the BINGO games receive "Gift Bags" that contain anything from a roll of paper towel, soap, canned food etc.  Items that can help stretch their retirement check.  At half time, it's lunch time.   First is the prayer offering then our small group of volunteers, about 10, shop, cook, prepare, and serve the meals.  Desert is always included!  Our Women of the Moose are very clever in how they decorate the deserts!   Once lunch is over, then the BINGO Manager, announces the monthly birthdays and hands out birthday cards.  Once this is all complete then it's back to round 2 of BINGO!  As for the volunteers, sadly it's time to start the chore of washing dishes!   In case you were wondering, all these Seniors are fed on a budget of just $300.

  • Why I am!
  • New Members
There are lots of reasons why members become and stay members. Here are a few vignettes on why some members became members for life!
Christopher will soon be deployed as a corporal in the Unites States Marine Corp. Christopher was a student at Mooseheart for 17 years. In the video, he gives his side of being a student at Mooseheart and what it meant to him! Home is where the heart is!
Eric starts this video; he is a teacher at Mooseheart. Eric talks about what a difference all the members of the Moose fraternity makes in the lives of the children at Mooseheart. But wait; there are a few others at Mooseheart that have some words too! The video ends with Kami Kolb who graduated in 2015. Kami is from Lynchburg Virginia.
Are you a new member, thinking of joining, Scott Hart CEO of Mooseheart walks you through all the reasons why members join this great fraternity in this new member orientation video!
Ever wondered what all the fuss is about with Moosehaven? Here is a video with the Executive Director of Moosehaven John Capes describing all the benefits to the members at Moosehaven.
