Women of the Moose Chapter 1999 News Flash September
We ended August with two events. The first, we collected over $500 of school supplies. These were donated to the LaBelle Elementary School for which they were very gracious and appreciative to receive such a large donation of school supplies. We want to thank the Caloosa Bell for reporting this even in our hometown paper. The second was the raffle for the cooler filled with summer fun items. Libby won the cooler and we raised almost enough money from this event to help cover the cost for the three officers to attend the mid-conference in Orlando.
Speaking of the mid-conference in Orlando, we learned of new changes. The most important one is that of cross membership which was approved at the Las Vegas Conference in Las Vegas this year. We learned that the Women of the Moose are the largest women’s organization in the world. Florida was ranked number one with a total of 2,706 new members and growing
In September, a Child’s Identification Program at our Lodge. We want to thank the Hendry County Sheriff’s Department for providing this ID service. Face painting was done by Sabrina while Ms. Mary (our LaBelle clown) entertained the children.
We are planning a Children’s Halloween Party on Thursday, October 30th and an adult Halloween Party on Friday, October 31st. There will be plenty of food as well as cash prizes for best costumes. We are tentatively planning a Poker Run in October.
With your help we can accomplish a lot. As a member of the W.O.T.M. “you” are the Chapter’s most important asset. We can take pride in our accomplishments.
Words to remember: Coming together is a beginning, staying together is a progress, working together is success.
