The New Orleans Convention is just a few weeks away, and we could still use some volunteers to round out the Moose Gift Store experience.

We need assistance at the checkout lanes (baggers), as shopping basket runners, and as door monitors.

 If you could help with a three-hour shift for the Gift Store on any of the days listed below, please contact Linda Stilin at or call (630) 966-2230 to sign up. Thank you and see you in New Orleans!

Here we are at the start of a new Moose year, new beginnings, new Officers, new ideas!  Our new Moose theme this year is “Embrace our Community”.  This theme highlights the good that our Fraternity has provided to our local communities for the past 100+ years and promotes what we will continue to do into the future.  We embrace our communities with awareness of the Moose, ask how we as a Fraternity can assist and invite them to join us in support of their/our community.  We need to make our presence known in our communities.

Many thanks and congratulations to those of you who have stepped up to be Officers, Chairmen and Appointed Officers for our new Moose year.  This is such a great opportunity to be of service, learn some new things and develop our leadership skills.

To my Chapter Sisters, there’s lots to do at the beginning of the year. 

Plan on attending a WOTM training session – right now we have the following sessions scheduled:

Date              Place                                    Trainer                                           Contact Info

5/4/2024       EKM                                     Kae Anderson                     

5/11/2024     Monroe                                Karyn Johnson                    

6/8/2024       River Falls                             Dawn Hill                            

6/15/2024     Racine                                  Nicole Springsteen              

6/29/2024     Chippewa Falls                      Dawn Hill                           

Please let the trainers know if you plan on attending. 

Things to bring: The WOTM General Laws, Secretary Book and a notepad for taking notes.  Lunch will be served by the hostess Chapter for a minimal fee.  The cost of the training session will be $10.00.  You must be present for the entire session to get credit for attending.

New Senior Regents – appoint your Chapter Committee Chairmen, Appointed Officer, Higher Degree Chairman and Special Committee Chairmen.  Don’t forget your Financial Review and Application Review Committees.

We should all schedule a meeting / get together with our Chapter Committee Chairmen.  At this meeting the Senior Regent should explain the responsibilities of the Chairmen, give them their Committee list from LCL web, talk with them about the importance of planning their Chapter Committee Activity night and fundraising ideas.  Make sure they are aware of the importance of submitting proposals to the Board of Officers for these activities.

Make sure to notify every member of the Chapter to let them know which Committee they are assigned to and then impress on the Chairmen how important it is to reach out to those Committee members, invite them to attend Committee and Chapter meetings.  So many times I hear members say “I would love to help but I never get asked”.  We need to keep our members involved. 

The Higher Degree Chairman should be presenting plans at your meeting in May to honor our new Academy of Friendship Friends in the month of June.  Please make this a special meeting and celebration of our new “Friends”.  They worked hard to earn this degree and we need to celebrate them.

So it’s like this, “on your marks, get set, GO!”  Let’s start the year off on the right foot and aim to get to the finish line with flying colors!

Thank you all for everything that you do!  Mooseheart, Moosehaven and our communities truly do appreciate it!

In love and Friendship,

Karyn Johnson
