As I’m settling in as your 2023/2024 State President. I’m looking over the WMA calendar for the rest of the Moose year to see what I can try to come and participate or visit.

I was able to attend a Pilgrim presentation, and 1 of the events planned for the visiting “Chairmen of the Board” [C.O.B.] for his Wisconsin Tour. If you ever get to attend 1 of those events please do, you will not forget them.

It was a pleasure to meet John Sipes this years C.O.B. in Green Bay where he presented a check to the “Local Old Glory Honor Flight” group.

If you are going to this years Mooseheart Senior Portraits, and Wisconsin Tree lighting events on Dec. 2nd. Say hi to John he will be there.

Getting back to the Veterans Honor Flight events, I had picked the Wisconsin ones to be the WMA Presidents project this year. In weeks to come I will be releasing information on the area Hubs that represent your counties where your Lodges are in plus other details.

If you started collecting funds these can be sent to the WMA Secretary, earmarked “Honor Flight”.

With the Holidays approaching fast I hoped your Lodge has plans for your communities such as to have “Trunk or Treat”; Thanksgiving, and Christmas meals events, etc.

Again, thank you for all that you do.

Larry H. Pratt

WMA President

We value you as a Moose member and appreciate your continued support of our children at Mooseheart, seniors at Moosehaven, your lodge and community.
