THE MOOSE LEGION DEGREE OF SERVICE AND LEADERSHIP:
Each Moose Legionnaires feels an increased level of pride in membership with opportunities to serve as leaders in the Moose fraternity. It’s also an opportunity to provide additional support for our Order’s philanthropic causes through additional fraternal involvement to Mooseheart and Moosehaven .
Each Moose Lodge is required, as per the General Laws of the Order, to organize a Moose Legion Committee. This group hosts its meetings and various functions for the social enjoyment of their local members. And, by doing so, not only do our Moose members enjoy their membership even more, but additional support is generated for the local Moose Lodge, and the Fraternity in general.
Additionally, an area of Moose Lodge’s band together and unify efforts when forming a Moose Legion jurisdiction (such as a District within a Moose Association). These jurisdictions then host additional functions for Moose Legionnaires and their families as directed by the Boards of Directors and approved by the membership. We raise significant funds in support of Mooseheart and Moosehaven as well as general support of the State and Provincial Moose Associations and indeed the Fraternity itself.
The Moose Legion is known as the “Degree of Service and Leadership” because of the many programs we support and the great leadership that we produce. We even have our own month of the year. January is always Moose Legion Honor Month. This is a great opportunity each year for every Moose Lodge and our Fraternity should take time to honor the service and leadership as continually provided by the Moose Legion.
The Moose Legion may possibly be even better known as the “Fun Degree”. Our members definitely do like to enjoy themselves! Our mission is “to have fun while providing greater service to the Moose fraternity”. And, our motto is “to do some good thing for someone each day”. Now, you can understand why we are Proud Moose Legionnaires!
The official regalia of a Moose Legionnaire is the maroon blazer featuring the official Moose Legion logo, with coordinating necktie, white shirt, black trousers and accessories. This official regalia may be worn at any function of the Order to show your pride in membership.
