A few words from the President,
The Moose Legion Committee is one of the most important Committees there is besides the Membership Committee.
I'm sure you get tired of going to meetings but the Moose Legion Committee is one of the ones that will help your lodge if you will let it. As you see throughout the fraternity the Moose Legionaries are the members who raise all the funds for the projects for Mooseheart and Moosehaven.
The Moose Legion will take the burden off the board of officers. It will give your Moose Legionaries a since of purpose. It's an obligation that you swore to uphold when you became a Moose Legionnaire.
So Governor's, I'm asking you to start a Moose Legion Committee if you don't have one.
Carl Overstreet , President

Many aviators have been at 2000 ft. AGL (above ground level) taking a peek at the ground watching the vehicles that look like matchbox cars go about their daily routine. Sometimes it is a good thing to stand back and look at what we have been doing. We need to analyze if our promotions and programs to see if they have brought about their intended outcomes.
Our International Moose Legion membership numbers were off by just 204 at Convention from April 30th which is not terrible, but still in the wrong direction from our intended growth in active membership. Even with the slight decrease in active members our donations to the Endowment Fund were up from previous years. This means our members are more determined to help build the Fund and get the job done. Our guys always step up to the plate and we are all proud of what we do.
Co Pilot Tommy is going on his first flight and is looking for the members of the Moose Legion to help by getting behind the President’s Project to fund the Camp Ross bunkhouse siding project. The bunkhouse also needs windows and doors and as any contractor knows, doors and windows need to be installed immediately after the old siding comes off and before the new siding goes on.
The siding project has a price tag of about $30,000. The windows and doors add another $15,000. Hopefully the other incidental damage from the water damage over the years doesn’t get too devastating. As is often said “A burden heave to one is borne lightly by many”. With 54,000+/- members it is less than $1 each to get this project finished and the rest of our Camp shining again.
I would like to invite all Moose, Women of the Moose and Moose Legion members to visit our camp and see what you have been doing over the past few years. Without your support many of the buildings would be in very sad condition.
It had been 25 years since the last major renovation and only critical repair had been done. Now the original section of the camp is a very nice relaxing environment for kids, staff and members. The new playground is assembled and the kids love it. It is a great addition to the overall feel of the facility. Thanks to the Moose Legionnaires in CA and FL for this great bonding tool.
We are looking at a brave new year with some of the same hurdles and some new ones. But we shall go “Above and Beyond” our expectations always looking out in front, around to the sides and where we‘ve been to see what we have to overcome to make our Fraternity the best it can be.
International Moose Legion President, Mike Hauf
