              “CREATING SOME INTEREST”
                                                 TAMPA, Florida - The large turnout at our recent Mid-Year
                                        Conference proves that a full agenda mixed with some fun and topped off with
                                        great Official Visitors will “Create Some Interest”. That was certainly the
                                        case in Tampa this past April.
                                                 The Official Visitor for the Women of the Moose was Past Director of
                                        Finance for the Women of the Moose Jeanenne Lautzenheiser and she certainly
                                        made her presence known. Not only did she bring some great information but
                                        she also, to the delight of all in
                                        attendance at the Saturday Night
                                        Banquet, regaled us with song.
                                        When Jeanenne, DGR Phyllis
   Deputy Grand Regent Phyllis Jewett
                                        Jewett and Academy of
       and Past Director of Finance     Friendship Board Member
         Jeanenne Lautenheiser          Gloria Petrea joined the men
                                        on Saturday morning, they were
treated to a standing ovation with thunderous applause before they
were allowed to speak.
          The Loyal Order of Moose Official Visitor was Shawn Baile,
Director of Membership and he proved to be a most gracious guest
with an infectious sense of humor. He spoke passionately about                Regional Manager for Alaska, Hawaii and Parts of
Mooseheart and Moosehaven. Shawn reminded us that we must                        Canada Jim Reid, Illinois’ Regional Manager
all strive to increase the strength of our order and work harder at           Austin Howard, F.B.M.A. President Chuck Myers,
keeping our existing members.                                                 Director of Membership Shawn Baile and Florida’s
          Two surprise visitors were Jim Reid, Regional Manager for                     Regional Manager Jerry Monk
Alaska, Hawaii and Parts of Canada and Austin Howard the new
Regional Manager for Illinois. Both Jim and Austin were great fun and good naturedly bore the brunt of some
friendly jokes and even made a couple of “financial apologies”. When speaking more seriously, they both expressed
their admiration for the F.B.M.A. and in particular our organizational structure. In fact Austin, who used to work
in the Training and Education Department at Moose International, said he will establish an Illinois State Fraternal
Education Committee modeled after the F.B.M.A.’s Committee.
          In summation, even though our Mid-Year Conference was inadvertently held over Easter Weekend, due to
the positive attitude of everyone in attendance, an enjoyable and productive time was had by all.

                            MESSAGE FROM THE REGIONAL MANAGER


                             We are off and running in a new Moose Year. We had a great year, we surpassed
                             our Association Quota by more that 2100 applications. We also had a gain in
                             membership of 111. The WOTM had a gain in membership as well, so as you see
                             it was a great year. The $0 Application fee did the job it was intended to do. 42%
                             of the LOOM applications for the year were collected during the three months of
                             this program. I hope many of you will be in Anaheim to see if we are in the
                             running for Top Association.

                             The Mid-Year was a success despite being held over Easter Weekend. I want
                             to give a special thanks to all who attended. I also want to thank Moosehaven’s
                             Reverend Helen Taylor for officiating the Sunday morning service.

It is now time to “Create Some Interest” as we look forward to the 2011-2012 Moose Year. Moose
International has released the Annual Campaign and the first quarter incentive program. The Moose CSI
(Create Some Interest) was released on May 1, 2011. This is the first time that I can remember the campaign
being released prior to the International Convention. The FBMA also released its annual campaign, Mission
Possible. We also still have the 7 Come 11 Campaign that runs until July 31, 2011. These campaigns, along
with the new Retention Program, should ensure that we have a gain in membership on April 30, 2012. Our
goal is to have every Lodge realize an increase active membership by at least one by the end of April. If your
Lodge is the “Friendliest Place In Town” you should have no problem having a gain in membership.

Every Lodge should, by now, have a game plan to ensure it earns the Premier Lodge Award. There have
been changes to the program and the information is on the Moose International Web Site under the Lodge
Operations Portal. It is pretty simple, operate as a Moose Lodge and follow the General Laws and your
Lodge will definitely earn this award.

We have our work cut out for us but I am confident that we will have a gain in membership by April 30, 2012
and I am also confident that we are in the running for the Top Association for this year. However I am
even more confident that when we come back here to Tampa for the International Convention in 2012 we
WILL Be the TOP ASSOCIATION.

As we look forward to the International Convention in Anaheim, I want to remind everyone that Florida is
always seated front left (FL) and don’t forget when you hear Florida or any Lodge, Moose Legion, Chapter or
member mentioned yell out “GIT ER DONE.” Let’s show the entire fraternity that “WE ARE NUMBER
ONE”, “A CUT ABOVE THE REST.”

Let’s start today to make 2011-2012 the best year we have ever had, and remember to “Create Some
Interest.”
Fraternally, Jerry Monk, Regional Manager

                            FROM THE DESK OF THE PRESIDENT


   What a great Mid-Year Conference we had in April. I was pleased to see so
many members turn out on Easter weekend. Thank you, one and all. And thank
you Reverend Helen Taylor from Moosehaven for conducting the Easter Sunday
Service. While the Conference was well attended, the WOTM once again topped
us with their attendance figures. OK, men - enough of this! Let's each pledge to
encourage someone who does not usually attend conferences and conventions to
be at the October Convention. I know we can outnumber the WOTM if we try,
and I also think it would make a big difference in the Lodges throughout the state.
What do you say?
   I hope many of you are going to the International Convention in Anaheim. Will
we be the Top Association? We'll see. If so, WONDERFUL! If not, let's make sure
we are when we go to the Convention next year in Tampa. Our fearless leader, Regional Manager Jerry
Monk, has had a taste of it once and we need to show him WE CAN DO IT! After all, we are A CUT
ABOVE THE REST! All four of our Lodges in Hillsborough County should be bustling with activities
during that time. But what about the rest of the time? What about your Lodge? Do you have something
going on during the week? Do you have activities planned for various age groups? Our emphasis is on
membership, and that is one of the big qualifiers for Top Association. The Supreme Council has given us
some tools to use, such as the No More Dues incentive. But what are you doing at the Lodge level? I am
challenging each of our Lodges in Florida to come up with one new activity each month for the rest of the
year. As the new membership campaign - CSI - for stands Create Some Interest. Not only will it help
you to sign up new members but it will definitely help you to keep some of the members you have. Let's
get to work!
Charles (Chuck) Myers, F.B.M.A. President


                     MESSAGE FROM THE DEPUTY GRAND REGENT


    Co-workers, what a WONDERFUL conference we had in April!!! Although our
attendance was down from last year we conferred 121 NEW FRIENDS with the Academy
of Friendship Degree. Wow!!
    And what can I say about Jeanenne Lautzenheiser, she was just great and a lot of fun
besides. I really enjoyed getting to see some of my long time friends and making new ones.
    Congratulations to Martha Wright of Merritt Island Chapter #1544 on receiving Novice
Co-worker of the Year. To the family of Co-worker Eleanor Sipe of Satellite Beach Chapter
#1983, I wish to thank you for allowing her to give her time and talents to the Women of
the Moose and being named Co-Worker of the Year.
    Are you ready for Anaheim? You need to make every effort to get there since the
WOTM of Florida have an increase in active members this year. Can we be number ONE?
I think so and I am looking forward to yelling really loud when we are recognized.
    Have you had your first meeting with your chairmen? This is very important as this will allow you to get your
calendar in effect and plan your social functions as well.
                          To all the Chapter Officers, I hope you have a wonderful year and every chapter in Florida
                       makes their Award of Achievement. Good luck to all of you.
                          And always remember: Friends are angels who lift our feet when our own wings have trouble
                       remembering how to fly.
                               Love to all of you and have a wonderful summer.
                               Phyllis Jewett

                            FROM THE DESK OF THE ASSOCIATION SECRETARY

                                       I would say that the Mid-Year Conference was a great success with a super turnout. Thanks
                             to the Women of the Moose for the donations to the FBMA Special Project, which is the Moosehaven
                             Sign, of almost $3,400. Thanks to all the Chapters for their support for all our projects. Some of the
                             companies that have the video machines in the Lodges donated $46,000 to Moose Charities which were
                             directed to FBMA projects. The March of Checks, where some of the Lodges made out checks to the
                             FBMA and some to Moose Charities, amounted to a little over $46.000 with and an additional check
                             for $10,000 which was presented to our Official Visitor, Shawn Baile, for the Endowment Fund from
                             the District President's collections at their District Meetings. A little over $2,600 was collected for the
                             MDA with over $4,500 collected for the Florida Sheriff's Youth Ranches. All in all, the donations were
                             very generous from the Lodges, Chapters, Moose Legions and Council of Higher Degrees. Thanks to
                             all the units.
                                       As a reminder, there are still sixteen (16) Lodges that have not paid their Association Dues.
                             Contact me if you are not sure whether you have paid or not. Remember if your Association dues
are not paid, your members can not play in any state sports tournaments, be District Officers and the Lodge would not get any
recommendations for Higher Degrees; get those dues paid.
         I know it is expensive to go to the International Convention in Anaheim but if you are going remember to sit in the Front
Left part of the Convention meeting room. Just remember FL (front left) and remember to holler and let them now the Green
Machine is in the house.
         Incidentally, I have checked and the 2012 Mid-Year Conference is the week after EASTER!!!!

                                              FRATERNAL EDUCATION CORNER
                                     I attended a Leadership Training Session before this article was written. It was at a Lodge that I
                               had never visited before. What I always do and have found extremely informative is walk around the
                               Lodge and see the information they are providing the men and women of their Lodge and their
                               Community Service events. There was an article posted that I found very interesting called “A Gentle
                               Hint” and I think many people will have experienced this feeling. It read as follows:
                               I SEE YOU AT THE MEETINGS, BUT YOU NEVER SAY “HELLO”.
                               YOU’RE BUSY ALL THE TIME YOU’RE THERE WITH THOSE YOU ALREADY KNOW.
                               I SIT AMONG THE FELLOWS, AND YET I’M A LONELY GUY.
                               THE NEW FISH ARE AS STRANGE AS I. YOU OLD FELLOWS PASS ME BY.
                               BUT DARN IT, YOU GUYS ASKED ME IN AND YOU TALKED OF FELLOWSHIP.
                               YOU COULD JUST STEP ACROSS THE ROOM, BUT YOU’VE NEVER MADE THE TRIP.
                               WHY CAN’T YOU NOD AND SAY “HELLO” OR STOP AND SHAKE MY HAND?
                               THEN GO AND SIT AMONG YOUR FRIENDS. NOW THAT I’D UNDERSTAND.
                               I’LL BE AT YOUR NEXT MEETING PERHAPS A NICE TIME TO SPEND,
                               DO YOU THINK YOU COULD INTRODUCE YOURSELF? I WANT TO BE YOUR FRIEND
                                           I have gone to these sessions many times over the years and I always seem to learn
something new. One of the things I learned at this Session was about Loss Prevention. I knew the Lodges were to do monthly
inspections and submit a Lodge Safety Inspection form twice a year. I didn’t realize that there is a section in the General Laws
that refers to the Loss Prevention Committee under the Trustees duties and that the One Year Trustee is the Chairman. During the
Leadership session there were a couple of exercises I really enjoyed doing but of course there are always some that are geared more
for new members and officers and I don’t get as enthused doing those. I hope that many of you attended a session in your area and
that all Lodges were represented.
     The Lodge Leadership and House Committee participant books have changed along with the topics being presented. There is a
lot to be learned during these Session however you will have the books to refer to and there is a lot of good information to rely on
without trying to find it in the General Laws which prevail if there are any discrepancies. (Dave Flood said I had to use one big
word in each article, and I had to look it up). You were given the new book called Officers’ and Committeemen’s Handbook with
a lot of valuable information and you received a copy of the latest (August, 2010) General Laws.
     What will really be interesting is that I going to Mooseheart in May (hopefully, no snow) to attend the Train The Trainer
Session which provides the tools for Trainers to use in the Leadership Training Sessions. I am attending another session after I
get back to Florida and I feel a little sorry for the Trainer as I am sure I will be all enthusiastic and he will be repeating what I just
spent 5 days going over at Mooseheart.

             DEDICATION CEREMONY IN HONOR OF ANN SALADIN
         ORANGE PARK, Florida - Many of us who were at Moosehaven on Sunday, March 27th, 2011 got a first look at the
newly re-furbished Moosehaven Cemetery. Thanks to the urging of Ann Saladin in particular, as well as many others and the
generosity of the Illinois Moose Association, a multi-year clean-up and beautification project has been successfully completed.
         After everyone had an opportunity to admire the grounds,
Moosehaven Executive Director John Capes led everyone in the dedication
of the wrought iron bench honoring Ann’s memory which was recently
donated by the Florida Bermuda Moose Association. John spoke lovingly
about Ann and in particular, her determination to see the cemetery cleaned
up. Moosehaven Chaplain, Reverend Helen Taylor was on hand to lead us
in prayer and formerly dedicate the bench.
         A visibly moved Jr. Past Supreme Governor Liguori Saladin
echoed John’s comments and added that Ann would be truly impressed
by the efforts made by everyone involved in the project and thanked the
FBMA for the bench. Finally, FBMA Vice President David Smith,
speaking on behalf of FBMA President Chuck Myers, gave thanks to
Ann and Liguori’s efforts and said that the Association looks forward
to working with Liguori for many more years to come.                           Pictured from left to right: FBMA Prelate Richard Jones,

                              MOOSEHAVEN EASTER EGG HUNT
                             DRAWS RECORD 3,238 PARTICIPANTS
         ORANGE PARK, FL, April 26 -- Each year, Moosehaven's "Heart of the Community" Easter
Egg Hunt gets bigger --and this year was the largest in the four-year history of the event, which -- like the
community's Halloween event in October -- has doubled in size each year it has taken place!
         A total of 3,238 egg hunters participated in four age-specific hunts, in which they went in search
of over 13,000 eggs hidden on the Moosehaven campus on a beautiful Saturday, April 23. Among these
                          eggs were eight Gold Prize eggs with $25 apiece in them. A further eight eggs
                          contained a Silver Prize of $15 apiece.
                                   But while the event was certainly about hunting for those eggs and
                          even perhaps opening one with some cash inside, there was so much more to do
                          -- and those thousands of visitors took advantage of a number of free activities,
                          such as a pair of rideable trains, three bounce-houses, pony rides and a petting
                          zoo.
                                   There was face-painting and a clown with balloons. And of course, no
                          Easter egg hunt is complete without a visit from the Easter Bunny. Mr. Peep and the Moose fraternity's
                          own Tommy Moose also made appearances and posed for photographs. And when visitors got hungry,
                          there was plenty of food for sale.
                                   The Orange Park Presbyterian Church, which co-sponsored the event, had its jazz band perform

  had been raised and donated to the newly constructed LED sign at the entrance to Moosehaven

MEMBER AWARDED LIFE MEMBERSHIP FOR 50 YEARS OF SERVICE
         PORT CHARLOTTE, Florida - Dr. Ted Piotrowski has
been an active member of the Fraternity since 1961, first joining
Lodge #961 in Teaneck, NJ, followed by stops at Lodges #1971 and
#1907 in New Jersey along the way to Florida. Ted said he and his
wife Judy have always enjoyed the friendship and socializing that is
easily found at a Moose Lodge, particularly in Port Charlotte.
         Brother Ted celebrated his 79th birthday in the first week of
March but still comes to Port Charlotte #2121 every Tuesday with
his wife Judy, as he has for the past 15 years, to have lunch and catch
up with friends. He said that he may have missed the Tuesday ritual
one week a year due to unforeseen circumstances.
         Ted feels that the biggest loss to the Moose over the past half
-century is the performing of the Nine O'clock Ceremony.                       (Left to Right) Administrator Bob Lanigan,

                              MIGHTY MOOSE PLANTED ON LODGE
                                                           BRADENTON BEACH, Florida - An aluminum moose was
                                                 put into position on the Anna Maria Island Moose Lodge, 110 Gulf Drive
                                                 S., Bradenton Beach. Steve Berquist of Bimini Bay Construction built and
                                                 mounted the moose. Ron Luckerman of the volunteer firehouse housed the
                                                 moose before it was raised to the lodge roof.
                                                           Moose are known to possess super strength. The mighty moose
                                                 standing tall over the Lodge can take wind speeds up to 130 mph.
                                                           The new moose is made of aluminum, with a height of 6 feet and a
                                                 full frame of antlers that spread like the palm fronds of nearby trees, said
                                                 Ernie Casali, administrator of the Anna Maria Island Moose Lodge 2188.
                                                           The moose was installed on the lodge roof about a week ago,
                                                 and was unveiled May 1, with Bradenton Beach Mayor Bob Bartelt and
Bradenton Beach Police Chief Sam Speciale (pictured above) removing a tarp to reveal the statue to a cheering,
applauding crowd.
         In the parking lot, the lodge served barbecue ribs and sausages, with proceeds benefiting the organization’s
Christmas fund for the Safe Children’s Coalition. Casali encouraged the crowd to eat, and guests to visit inside the
lodge.
         The lodge was once adorned with a real moose head that was encased in fiberglass, but still not resilient to the
salty air. Casali said the head was refurbished twice before it was removed. “He was too far gone to refurbish again.
He was sent to the bone yard,” he said.
         Other changes have occurred to spruce up the Moose lodge, including a new railing along the west side of the
parking lot, which will curb people from leaping from the lot to the back patio. Inside, the dining room has been
decorated in Key West colors, with new tablecloths added. Also, said Casali, “We are adding tiki poles.”
         Earlier this year, Casali told city officials, several of whom are members of the 42-year-old lodge, about long-
and short-term plans.
         Eventually, the membership might pursue adding a second story. “We are seeking advice from an experienced
builder on the Island for a price guestimate,” Casali said. He added, “We are not going to sit idle. We are constantly
                                                                  23
doing some sort of improvement.”                      Article by Lisa Neff, Islander reporter and submitted for publication by Ernie Casali

JACKSONVILLE LODGE 455 HOLDS 100th ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION
          WOW! It’s great to be a Moose member in the great State of Florida! Jacksonville Lodge 455, the first Moose
Lodge in Florida, celebrated their 100th birthday for the whole month of January, and what an event it was.
          First, we started with a Moose Legion Celebration on January 7th. Seminole Moose Legion 81 also celebrated
their 90th birthday that month. We had International Moose Legion President Bruce Berger come and visit our Lodge.
He is a great motivational speaker. As we continued with the Moose Legion Celebration, two of our very own members
joined the Moose Legion - Trustee Gene Wilfong and Governor Tony Seifert. Everyone had a great time. Thank you
Seminole 81.
                                            The next weekend, January 15th, we
                                   had the F.B.M.A. Executive State Board over for
                                   a night to remember. We started out with a Steak
                                   and Shrimp Dinner with all the trimmings. State
                                   President Chuck Meyers cut the cake that we had
                                   made for the F.B.M.A. for their support of our 100
                                   Year Celebration. Orlando Lodge 766 came up for
                                   the event and performed the Golden Ball and even
                                   got some of the members of the audience to
                                   participate. To cap off the evening, the Johnston
                                   Duo Band played late into the night so everyone
                                   could dance the night away.
 F.B.M.A. President Chuck Myers              On January 21st, our actual birthday        The Golden Ball being preformed by
 and Secretary Scott Cushing                                                             members of Orlando Lodge 766
                                   weekend, we started off by having some of the
                                                      Moosehaven Residents over for a steak dinner with music performed
                                                      by the Bocats. We had so much fun dancing and carrying on with the
                                                      Moosehaven residents and I am pretty sure they had a great time also.
                                                      Then as if that was not enough excitement, the next night our guest
                                                      was none other than G.W. McCullough III, our Supreme Governor
                                                      and his lovely wife Sue. G.W. is such a good sport that after dinner
                                                      we thought we would have a little fun, so for his visit we got some
                                                      G. W. McCullough III Bobbleheads and then we made some rubber
                                                      band guns and charged 4 shots for a dollar. Of course G.W. was the
                                                      first one in line. However he did not do as well as Ray Bennet. Ray
                                                      hit the G. W. Bobblehead and won a 100-year celebration t-shirt.
                                                      All the money collected, $972.00, went to the endowment fund and

         Later that evening we paid tribute to our living
Past Governors and Past Senior Regents. We also had a
Memorial Service for our fallen Past Governors and
Senior Regents.
         The fun continued on with our Governor Tony
Seifert and Junior Regent Patsy Hopson presenting gifts
of appreciation to our Supreme Governor and his wife
Sue. However the night did not end there, our group of
motorcycle riders were so excited that G. W. was coming
that they presented him with a special gift - a Black
Leather vest with our 100 year logo embroidered on the
back and their rider patch on the front Also on the                     Past Governors of Jacksonville Lode 455 and

                                  From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
                              A bobblehead doll, also known as a bobbing head doll,
                              nodder, or wobbler, is a type of collectible toy. Its head is
                              often oversized compared to its body. Instead of a solid
                              connection, its head is connected to the body by a spring
                              in such a way that a light tap will cause the head to
                              bobble, hence the name.

                         Although bobblehead dolls have been made with a wide
                         variety of figures such as vampiric cereal pitchman
                         Count Chocula, beat generation author Jack Kerouac,
                         and Nobel-prize-winning geneticist James D. Watson,
Supreme Governor G. W.   the figure is most associated with athletes, especially Carl Hoover presented Regional Manager
McCullough Bobblehead    baseball players. Bobblehead dolls are sometimes given Jerry Monk with his very own Bobblehead
                         out to ticket buyers at sporting events as a promotion.
Corporations including Taco Bell (the 'Yo Quiero Taco Bell' Chihuahua), McDonald's (Ronald McDonald), and Empire
Today (The Empire Man) have also produced popular bobbleheads of the characters used in their advertisements.

                               W.O.T.M. RITUAL IS BACK IN FLORIDA!

     TAMPA, Florida - April 3, 2011 - The last time the Women of the Moose Ritual Competition was held in
Florida was October 2008. We all remember the Saturday Night Banquets where the excitement seemed to grow into
a living thing as everyone anticipated the announcement of the Women’s Ritual Competition results. Well this past Mid
-Year Conference was the venue for the new W.O.T.M. Ritual Competition.
     Although only two teams competed this year, the appreciation shown by the Banquet attendees was awesome.
For those that have not seen the Ritual performed, I must say that it is both elegant and impressive.
The two teams, Palm Beach Gardens/Jupiter and Lake Winter Brook, worked very hard in preparation for competition
especially considering that they had to incorporate changes to the ritual almost up to the time of competition.
     Both teams are going on to International Competition in Anaheim this July and I am sure that they will make
Florida proud.
     Hopefully, we will see more teams at State Competition next year now that the W.O.T.M. Ritual has been
reestablished. I know that many of us have missed the infectious excitement of the Saturday night Awards Ceremony.

                                                         NOTE OF THANKS
First I want to say that FYI: on my way home from the airport, the guy on the radio stated that it will be another 90
years before Easter will ever fall on this weekend again. So I think Scott should be very safe in his scheduling.

I want to thank the Association for all they do to support the Women of the Moose Ritual Program. The room and
meals were absolutely wonderful. The dinners were filled with great food, fun and fellowship. To the Women, you
have always made my visits unforgettable and I never leave without a new group of friends. At a very young age
I was taught a song that I live with each day:
                     "Make new friends, but keep the old. One is silver and the other is gold."
So, I may not have won any drawings, I still left Florida with plenty of Silver and Gold.

To those of you on your way to California, be safe, have fun and if you see me, say Hey.......

Until we meet again,                                                27

                                               Message from Dave
                                    International Moose Legion Ambassador
   What a ride and experience it has been as an International Moose Legion Ambassador the past three (3) years serving
Cypress 202, Indian River 178, St Johns River 227 and Northwest 182. Jeanette and I have enjoyed many great visits
and celebrations with new friends we probably would never had the chance to get to know as closely as we have. Yes,
we covered a few miles here in Florida as well, some we probably would have never seen if not for the assignment.
   As time changes all of our lives, memories live on. We cherish those memories and have many photos that were
taken enabling us to look at and enjoy, especially on those nights when it is snowing hard and (oops, I forgot this is
Florida). Oh well, as I said time changes us all and I think maybe the mind is already ahead on the change.
   Sincere thanks to all members for their support to the jurisdiction and the progress that was made in all areas. The
cooperation between the Directors, LMLC Committees, the Moose “Legionettes”, the Conferral Staffs, the host Lodges
and all others that have made the jurisdictions as strong and prosperous as they are. I for one have been extremely proud
of all the accomplishments.
   Please support all Board of Directors and the future of the Moose Legion. To quote our FBMA President Chuck
Myers, you are a “cut-above-the rest”. Our charge for the next and future years is to strengthen our Moose Legion by
keeping the members we have, getting new members and put the fun back into being a Moose Legionnaire. We must
do a better job of “Mentoring” and build for the future. Search for that one new Moose Legionnaire that shows an
interest in furthering the Moose Legion Mission and Vision. By doing that, you will ensure our future will be bright
and lasting.
   To the all the ladies, “Thanks” for all that you do. There is no doubt no Moose Legion jurisdiction could not exist
without all of you. We need you, we appreciate you and we love you all.
   As you won’t be seeing Jeanette and me as much as in the recent past, we still invite you to say “HI” when you see
us out and about. Please keep us in mind as we head down the paths of our destiny.
  Fraternally and God Bless (also HOO-RAH)
  Dave and Jeanette Flood

                                      MOOSE RIDERS

           MOOSE RIDERS DONATE PUBLISHING WORKSTATION
                   TO FLORIDA YOUTH RANCHERS
         At the recent Mid-Year Conference Frank Kenny, Donor Relations Officer - Florida Sheriffs Youth
Ranches, reported that the FBMA Moose Riders had just presented to him a “Publishing Workstation” for
the Ranchers at the Live Oak facility. The workstation consisted of a 6-G desktop computer, a 22” LCD
monitor, a combination printer/scanner/copier and a camcorder equipped with a still-photo option and
carrying case. The workstation donation was precipitated by a casual email to the Moose Riders State
Secretary about a newsletter, “M.E.N.”, started by a handful of boys at the Ranch. This led to an article in
the Moose Rider newsletter “Pipes” featuring the boys’ newsletter and a brief description of how it all got
                               started. Impressed by the boy’s initiative, Florida Moose Riders asked if they
                               needed any help to continue to develop their journalism and desktop publishing
                               skills. We found out that a better computer and printer were on their wish list.
                               The Moose Riders stepped up to the plate. Within a short period of time over
                               $1500.00 worth of computer equipment was purchased so that the boys would
                               have what they needed before the end of the school year. Unfortunately, due to
                               the Easter Holiday and spring break schedules, the boys were not able to be at the
                               Conference to accept the donation in person. However, Frank Kenny personally
                               delivered the “workstation” to the boys at the Ranch when they returned from
                               their break. According to an email from Frank, “You had some pretty excited
                               boys. They thought it was Christmas.”
         The young journalists also hope to publish the 2011 Live Oak Ranch “Yearbook” on their new
equipment. Moose Riders are excited to see them develop these graphic design, journalism and computer
skills, which we know will be extremely valuable to them when they leave the Ranch. A ride to the Live
Oak Ranch is already scheduled in early October for the Open House and hopefully we will get to meet
these young men and see the equipment in action. Maybe they will “feature” Moose Riders in their next
issue of “M.E.N.”.
         FBMA Moose Riders are proud of their nearly 1000 members throughout the state, all of whom
work hard to raise money for Mooseheart, Moosehaven, Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches, and other national
and local charities in their areas, many of which aid children and the military. At this year’s Mid-Year
Conference, State Moose Riders reported raising over $42,000 in the months from October 2010 to
April 2011 and by October are hoping to eclipse last year’s annual fundraising figure of nearly $67,000.

Kickstands Up and be safe.—Joan Fedora, FBMA Moose Riders State Secretary

  FLORIDA SHERIFFS YOUTH RANCHES PREPARE FOR SUMMER CAMP

          LIVE OAK, Florida – May 12, 2011 – School is almost out and summer is fast approaching. For the staff and
volunteers of the Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches, that means the beginning of Summer Camp is right around the corner.
                                    The Sheriffs Youth Ranches camping
                           staff are busy preparing and planning a
                           summer full of activities at Youth Camp,
                           Caruth Camp and the mobile camp sites
                           around the state. Kids may participate in
                           swimming, challenge course activities, arts
                           and crafts, sports, singing, and other related
                           recreational adventures. Our motto at camp
                           is “Law Officers are Your Friends!”
                                    Our program wide goal is to guide
   A camper challenges
    herself on the high   young people away from the path of future           Campers enjoy swimming during the hot summer months
       ropes course       delinquency. By providing a safe place and caring environment at our Summer Camps,
Florida’s children are given an opportunity to grow and learn that there is a better way to live their lives. The positive
relationships that campers develop with staff, as well as Sheriff’s Deputies, gives each child a firm base to make better
decisions when they return home.
                                                                 Many deputies from around the state come out to the camp
                                                        sites and volunteer their time. The kids love interacting with the
                                                        deputies and spending time with them during activities. They look
                                                        up to them as positive role models. These relationships make an
                                                        impact on boys and girls that will last a lifetime.
                                                                 Our counselors and law enforcement volunteers take the time
                                                        to make each boy and girl feel special and ensure they have a great
                                                        camp experience. Canoeing, archery and swimming, as well as many
                                                        other esteem building recreational activities, allow boys and girls the
                                                        opportunity to participate in groups, building teamwork and positive
   Campers show a deputy the crawfish claw they found
         at Camp Caruth near Yankeetown, Florida        peer communications skills.
          Camping services also offers special community or school
programs, through the mobile camp initiatives, which are aimed at
reducing violence, racial tensions and negative behavior and increasing
communication, cooperation, and cultural understanding.

         I want to thank all who played in your regional pool tournaments. We had a good
turn out so we should have a super State Tournament when we get to Orlando. The State
Tournament will be held on Labor Day weekend at Orlando Lodge 766. All the host Lodges
did an outstanding job with the tournaments. Lodges wishing to host the tournaments in
2012 should start thinking about it now and get your application in early. To bid for the Jack
and Jill and the Golf Tournament your application must be in by the first week of July. To
bid on all other tournaments your application must be in by November 1st. This is one of
the best ways to make $$$ and have fun at your Lodge.
         On July 9th and 10th, the woman of the state will be in Merritt Island for the
Woman’s State Pool Tournament. We are expecting more than 300 to sign in on Friday
night. The Lodge will have everything ready to go on Friday night. Fred and Phyllis Jewett,
along with all of the members of Merritt Island Lodge, are great hosts and will make the
weekend one to remember.
         Below are the results of the Men’s Regional Pool Tournaments and again I want to thank all the Regional
Pool Chairman who volunteered their time to work on the weekend and make it a fun filled time for all.
         That’s all for now and always remember “THINK FUN”
