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
